Special Issue "Metal Matrix Composites"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 May 2020.
Interests: metal matrix composites; powder metallurgy; mechanical properties
Metal matrix composites (MMCs) have attracted growing interest as alternatives for metallic alloys due to their high strength-to-weight ratio, high temperature stabilities, and unique thermal/electrical/chemical properties. Furthermore, properties of MMCs can be tailored by manipulating the morphology, size, orientation, and fraction of reinforcement on the basis of a wide range of materials combination, which open new opportunities in a variety of applications of daily life. This Special Issue, “Metal Matrix Composites”, will address advances in materials science, processing, material modeling and characterization, performance, and testing of metal matrix composites for a variety of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, electrical, electronic, energy, and biomedical applications. This Special Issue also welcomes articles and reviews on practical applications of advanced MMCs.

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 papers will be 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 2000 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.
