Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
In the last decades, the trend in the manufacturing industry has led to the production of products with better properties, of lighter weight, with less waste, that are more profitable and more sustainable. These challenges have caused a need to develop new and/or improve the existing manufacturing processes applied to new materials. To achieve this, the knowledge of the limits of the formability of materials will determine the success of industrial processes.
Formability limits are a measure of the plastic deformation that a material can reach without failure. Depending on the raw material, and whether it is bulk or sheet, failure is triggered by different modes. These limits can be determined by means of experimental tests, and in recent years, due to techological advances, new methodologies have been developed to obtain them more accurately.
It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript or review to this Special Issue on the definition of the field formability limits of metallic or polymeric 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 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.
