Special Issue "Applications of Al Alloys on Lightweight Structures"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 August 2020.
Interests: cellular structures; additive manufacturing; intermetallics; mechanical properties; powder metallurgy; porous materials
Lightweight components are of crucial interest for all branches of industry. Aluminum and its alloys have been the prime material of many lightweight applications. The combination of acceptable costs, low component mass, appropriate mechanical properties, structural integrity and ease of fabrication are very attractive in aircraft constructions, vehicles, electrical conductors, packaging, machined components or sporting goods. This Special Issue aims to present the latest works in the research and development of Al alloy lightweight applications. The aim of this Special Issue is to present the latest achievements of theoretical and experimental investigations of “Al Alloys on Lightweight Structures”. It is our pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript to this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews are welcome for submission.

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.
