It is a pleasure to invite you to take part in the Special Issue of Materials that we coordinate and titled “Experimental Characterization and Numerical Modelling of Materials Mechanical Behavior”. The opportunity to submit your research reports is open until 30 November 2019. Here is described the scope of this Special Issue:
Metal forming comprises industrially relevant manufacturing processes in which the characterization of the mechanical response of the materials involved in different engineering applications is a crucial task. This characterization may contribute to a more efficient use of the available resources by means of the enhancement of both the operating conditions and the process design. Therefore, this analysis encompasses not only experimental aspects but also theoretical modelling and numerical simulation, whose final goal is to achieve a realistic description of many of the usually complex physical phenomena present in these engineering problems.
This Special Issue aims to collect the latest advances in modelling and numerical and experimental validation of the mechanical behavior of materials used in common engineering environments. Contributions are welcome from both academic researchers and their industrial peers, dealing with novel manufacturing applications. Accordingly, this Special Issue covers the following topics:
- Novel experimental techniques for material characterization
- Phenomenological and multiscale constitutive modelling
- Improved algorithms for material parameters identification
- Coupled thermomechanical and metallurgical modelling
- Fracture and damage criteria
- Numerical simulation of forming processes: casting, forging, extrusion, rolling, stamping, deep drawing, thermoforming, wire/tube drawing, additive manufacturing, welding, friction stir welding, etc

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.
