Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The physical and mechanical properties of materials are largely determined by their microstructure, as well as defect and impurity concentrations. To understand and control these changes during aging, loading, irradiation, and annealing require different simulation techniques to link the complex physics involved at different time and length scales. The different scale simulation approaches, which together constitute multiscale modeling, extend from density-functional theory to rate equations and finite-element modeling. Recent advances in simulation techniques and in the understanding of defect interactions have improved the reliability of multiscale modeling and extended its use in simulating various dynamic processes in solid materials.

In this Special Issue, recent advances in multiscale modeling techniques, including relevant fundamental defect interactions at different time and length scales, are highlighted and discussed.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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.
