Special Issue "Structure and Mechanical Properties of Alloys"
A special issue of Materials (ISSN 1996-1944).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 December 2019.
The dynamic industry development is demanding higher and higher requirements for present constructions and elements in relation to the anticipated working conditions and existing real needs, thus supporting as well as directing the progress in the field of material engineering and favouring the production, testing, and analysis of new materials. Modern, advanced engineering materials allow for the design of more advanced, safe-to-use, and energy-saving constructions, characterised by significantly better corrosion resistance and higher mechanical strength compared to the materials used until recently. Contemporary trends in material engineering related to metallic materials concern mainly the reduction of their grain size, structure modifications using thermal, chemical, and mechanical treatment, as well as the decrease of the specific weight of the finished elements by using light metal alloys such as those containing aluminium, magnesium, and titanium. This Special Issue will focus on the influence of special treatment processes on the evolution of the microstructure and the properties of metal alloys.

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 1800 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.
