Wear (damage to mechanical components caused by wear and fatigue) is considered to be an important issue for mechanical engineers and materials scientists. It is important to understand the different types of mechanical and chemical damages, which are usually thought of as gradual deterioration. For the purpose of wear resistance and fatigue strength, it is necessary to improve the mechanical properties of materials, as the surface damage is the result of a complex process connected with friction (wear), fatigue (cracking), fatigue (fracture), etc. Furthermore, low friction between two sliding or rolling surfaces plays an important role in saving. This Special Issue outlines research based on improvement in damage, wear, and fatigue of steels and also assesses some synergetic damage, wear, and fatigue mechanisms. We invite researchers from around the world to submit original research papers and review articles on the improvements in damage, wear, and fatigue performances of steels by controlling the mechanical properties and microstructure using different methods. Both experimental and analytical case studies related to damage, wear, and fatigue of steels are very 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.
