Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Special Issue on “Novel High-Temperature Materials: Preparation, Characterization, and Applications” brings together scientists working at universities, research institutes, and various industries laboratories, to discuss state-of-the-art research on these group of materials. High-temperature materials are ceramics, metals, their alloys, and composites which offer excellent chemical, phase, and property stability, at temperatures exceeding 900 °C. More specifically, these are the materials which could be used at such high temperatures and consist principally of some stainless steels, Ni-base alloys, single-crystal super alloys, refractory metals (tungsten, rhenium, osmium, tantalum, molybdenum, niobium, zirconium, iridium), their alloys, and a wide group of ceramic materials. These materials are used as materials of thermal protection systems (TPS), coatings for materials exposed to high temperatures, and bulk materials for heating elements or isolators. High-temperature materials are being encountered in such applications as: turbine blade materials, cutting and drilling tool materials, coatings for so-called thermal barriers, heating elements, insulations in furnaces, electrodes for electric arc furnaces, nozzles, heat shields, high-temperature reusable surface insulation tiles, and many others.

These materials are responsible for the progress of many industries starting from the mining industry, through manufacturing processes, to the space industry.

Therefore, this Special Issue welcomes contributions from all researchers working on high-temperature materials obtaining, as well as on their modeling, synthesis, characterization, properties, and applications.

The Special Issue will cover but will not be limited to the following topics:

  • High-temperature materials and their property modeling;
  • Refractory metals and their alloys, superalloy synthesis;
  • High-temperature ceramics and composites;
  • Thermal protection systems;
  • New methods of processes for the production of high-temperature materials;
  • High-temperature coatings;
  • Methods of properties characterization at high temperatures;
  • Chemical reactivity and oxidation at high temperature;
  • Related and new applications for high-temperature materials.

It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews are welcome.

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.
