Welding alloys and steels are widely used in a variety of industries and applications. The microstructure and mechanical properties of these materials are affected by the properties of the base material and the welding process itself. During welding, a material’s microstructure can be changed, which can have implications for the mechanical properties of the welded joint. For example, high-carbon steels are more prone to forming martensite, which can lead to reduced toughness. Nickel-based alloys are often used in high-temperature applications. However, they can be difficult to weld due to their high melting points and tendency to form brittle microstructures if not welded properly. These examples show that understanding the microstructure and mechanical properties of welding alloys and steels is crucial in producing high-quality welds. Overall, this is a broad and diverse field with many important research topics, such as welding process optimization, materials selection, material characterization, mechanical testing, weld defect analysis, as well as corrosion and wear resistance. Contributions to this Special Issue should address new findings in these research topics. The editors would especially appreciate papers that reference the application of nondestructive evaluation (NDE) and of artificial intelligence (AI) in welding.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2600 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.
