The combination of diverse engineering materials (e.g., metals, polymers, ceramics, and their composites) and extreme service environments (e.g., high temperature, high pressure, mechanical loads, chemicals, radiation, and their interactions) inevitably challenges the reliability, safety, longevity, and economy of the equipment in industries. In this context, measures which cover the whole life cycle of the equipment are adopted before operation, including design optimization, fabrication improvement, and reliability evaluation. During operation, routine maintenance, failure analysis, experience feedback, etc. are adopted, and in all stages the emphasis is laid on the essence of the equipment—the materials. Thus, a full understanding of the performances of diverse engineering materials in extreme service environments will make a significant contribution to the operation of industrial equipment.
The aim of this Special Issue entitled “Engineering Materials in Extreme Environments” is to collect cutting-edge knowledge and provide a comprehensive overview of the structures, properties, processing, and performances of the engineering materials serving/involved in the extreme environments of conventional industries including aerospace, chemical production, mining, manufacturing, oil and gas, power generation, steel production, transportation, etc. Research papers, reviews, and case studies related to design, fabrication, experiment, reliability evaluation, numerical simulation, failure analysis, etc. are encouraged. The engineering materials applied in emerging industries like integrated circuits, information science, biotechnology, etc. are also welcome.
We cordially invite you to submit manuscripts for 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 2600 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.
