Special Issue "High Temperature Alloys and Intermetallic Materials"
A special issue of Materials (ISSN 1996-1944).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 December 2020.
Interests: additive manufacturing; high temperature materials; Ni superalloys; Titanium Aluminides; titanium alloys; relationships microstructure-properties
Nowadays the request for materials able to efficiently operate at ever-higher service temperatures is continuously pushing research activities in many industrial sectors. In particular, in the field of power generation, aerospace and automotive, it is of fundamental importance in order to increase the efficiency of the engines, thus reducing fuel consumption and pollutant emissions moving towards greener engines. Ever-higher temperatures mean moving to ever-more severe conditions for materials that require improved mechanical properties, but also oxidation and corrosion resistance.
The Special Issue, “High Temperature Alloy and Intermetallic Materials”, will address advances in materials science, processing, characterization, new components development as well as the testing of new systems of materials for high temperatures, thus providing readers with up-to date information on the recent progress from different perspectives.
It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript to this Special Issue. Original papers are solicited on metallic alloys and intermetallic materials in the following areas:
- New chemical compositions for increased properties
- New processing routes
- New characterizations
- New coatings for thermal protection
- New findings in their oxidation and corrosion
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.
