Special Issue "Welding and Joining Processes of Materials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2021.
Interests: thermal plasma; plasma diagnostics; computational fluid dynamics; arc welding; plasma cutting; electric contacts; arc lamp
Welding and joining processes of materials are key technologies applied to the manufacture of most industrial products such as buildings, bridges, ships, automobiles, aircrafts, pressure vessels, pipelines, electronic equipment, and so on. In industry, various welding and joining processes such as arc welding, laser welding, and friction stir welding have been developed. Among these processes, the most suitable one is applied to the manufacture according to the requirements determined by factors like the characteristics of materials and the joint configuration. In order to improve the efficiency and quality of welding and joining processes, significant research to clarify the process mechanisms on a scientific basis and develop advanced processes has been actively carried out all over the world. However, further work is still required in this field.
The scope of this Special Issue focuses on recent advances in the field of welding and joining processes of materials. The topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
- Developments of advanced welding and joining processes;
- Modelling and simulation of welding and joining processes;
- Heat source properties;
- Heat source–material interaction mechanism;
- Fluid mechanics and heat transfer in weld pools.
We would like to invite you to submit original research articles and reviews related to any topics mentioned above.

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.
