Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Iron alloys have been used by people for many years. In the modern world, steel products occupy a significant place in all spheres of human activity. New challenges require new solutions, so the steel industry does not stand still. In this Special Issue, we are going to collect works devoted to both the development of new steel materials (including new technologies, for example, additive) and the modification of well-known steel grades by alloying, thermomechanical, and surface treatments.

Repair works using surface (ultrasonic, laser, plasma) treatments have a significant impact on the service characteristics of the steel material, which requires careful study not only of its external quality but also changes in its internal structure and phase state.

The main aim of this Special Issue is to cover recent progress in decisions regarding the problems related to steel materials and parts, including recent developments in manufacturing and surface treatment. The Issue will collect the investigations associated with the following topics:

  • physical and mechanical properties of modern steel materials
  • problems with the surface treatment and protective coatings of steel materials
  • structure evolution and martensitic transitions in steel metals under severe plastic or cyclic deformation
  • modern methods of studying the structure and properties of steel materials
  • new technologies in the manufacturing of steel materials
  • biomedical use of steel materials
  • mathematical modeling and metal forming simulation

Scientific papers reporting new and unpublished results on these topics are welcomed.

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 2300 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.
