Special Issue Information
Light alloys (Al-, Mg-, and Ti-based) and high-temperature alloys are widely used as key engineering materials in both civil and military industries due to their excellent comprehensive properties and performance. To meet the growing demand for the properties/performance of the materials, there is a perpetual need to explore novel, light and high-temperature alloys. This Special Issue of Materials is accepting papers on any new progress/development in the fields of light and high-temperature alloys. Both research and review articles are welcome.
This Special Issue primarily covers all of the theoretical and experimental investigations into different types of light alloys, including Al-, Mg-, and Ti-based, and high-temperature alloys, including Ni-, Co-, Fe-, and Nb-based. Either the mechanical or functional behaviors at all length scales can be emphasized. Related topics, such as protective coatings on high-temperature alloys, metal matrix composites, and so on, also fall within the scope of this Special Issue. Moreover, research into new high-temperature alloys, i.e., high-entropy alloys or multi-principal element alloys, is also welcome.
Thank you very much, and I look forward to receiving your submission soon.
Prof. Dr. Lijun Zhang
Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2300 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
