In modern conditions of operation of machinery and constructions, the main tasks are to increase strength, resource, survivability, and durability. Extreme conditions in terms of mechanical, thermal, electromagnetic, hydro-, and aerodynamic repeated loads determine the presence of cyclic plastic deformations in the loaded zones. The most critical and unique products, machines, and structures are operated in cyclic deformation modes, which determine failure even at low loads. The durability and reliability of machines is largely determined by their fatigue resistance, since in the vast majority of cases for machine parts, the main type of loading is dynamic, repeated, and alternating loads, and the main type of failure is fatigue. The issues of fatigue and strength are the subject of the most careful consideration from the point of view of both scientific research and experimental design and technological developments. Fatigue strength and durability are important criteria for evaluating the health and resource of numerous parts and constructions. Their role is especially growing for modern highly loaded critical products exposed to cyclic loads in the field of low and high cycle fatigue. The difficulty in assessing the cyclic strength of construction materials is related to the fact that many different factors influence fatigue failure (structure, state of the surface layer, temperature and test conditions, loading frequency, stress concentration, cycle asymmetry, scale factor, and a number of others). Therefore, the study of the physical nature of changes in various parameters of metals during fatigue is of great scientific interest. The motivation for this investigation is to provide an insight into the behavior of materials under different conditions.
It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript to this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews are all 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.
