Special Issue "Characterization Methods for Metal Cast Processes"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (10 September 2021).
Interests: influences on the wear behavior of cutting edges; assistance for sheet metal forming operations based on artificial intelligence; qualification of new approaches for cast process designs
The foundry is currently changing. In view of the fact that environmental policies are becoming more severe, and with respect to the development of alternative engines, production is also on the move. One of the main challenges of modern foundries is the development of integral components and the design of efficient cast processes, which meet the demands of the industrial market. This also includes the extensive use of the potential of cast materials and the targeted, positive influence on their properties.
The combination of processes and materials forms the basis for forward-looking developments in the engineering of cast components and enables the production of high-precision components, which are competitively viable.
This Special Issue addresses advanced topics concerning the quality of cast parts, the efficiency of cast processes, and the characterization of cast materials. All characterization methods concerning castings and cast processes are welcome, as well as the analysis of different kinds of metals, for example, high entropy alloys.
It is my pleasure to invite you to submit your work to this Special Issue.
Prof. Dr. Wolfram Volk
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 2300 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.
