Deformation, fracture, and fatigue of structural components are very common problems to be managed during the design of complex products and structures. They can provoke unexpected failures or inappropriate behavior of structural components under in-service loading conditions with a shortening of the fatigue life. Aim of this Special Issue is to provide an update to the state-of-the-art on these problems, showing a clear link between material micro-nano behavior and the behavior of a real structure. Multiscale approaches are usually employed to capture these features in a unified way. Recent advanced criteria for fracture and fatigue predictions are fully considered in this Special Issue, keeping in mind the introduction and use of new advanced materials as additive materials, functionally graded materials, and multifunctional materials.

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 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 2600 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.
