Special Issue Information
It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript to the Special Issue “Microstructure and Mechanical Properties of Alloys” in Materials (Impact Factor: 3.748).
Metal alloys are widely used in industrial products, and their microstructure and mechanical properties directly affect the performance of products. During the whole life cycle of a metal product, its microstructure and mechanical properties will undergo multiple stages of evolution. Firstly, the preparation of alloys, including metallurgy, casting and rolling, determines the initial properties of alloys. Afterward, alloys will undergo welding, joining or machining processes in order to manufacture metal products, which will also affect the microstructure and mechanical properties of alloys. Finally, during the service process of metal products, they will experience high-temperature, -oxidation or -corrosion environments, which will affect the microstructure and mechanical properties of alloys to varying degrees. It is crucial to study the micro store and properties of alloys in the whole life cycle to promote the development and application of alloys.
The aim of this Special Issue is to provide an updated outlook on the microstructure and mechanical properties of alloys at various stages, including the preparation, processing and service stages. Especially the correspondence between alloys microstructure and mechanical properties needs to be established. These papers can help resolve and understand the evolution of properties of alloys products at different stages. This will help to adjust and design the microstructure and mechanical properties of alloys throughout the whole life cycle.
This Special Issue represents a good opportunity for researchers around the world to disseminate different aspects of their work and report the results related to this topic.
Research articles, review articles, and communications are invited for submission to this Special Issue.

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.
