Special Issue Information
Foundry engineering is still a strongly developing field of material science and an important branch of production of metallic materials. Publications concerning foundry engineering are very popular and usable for many academic scientists and engineering work in many industries. Therefore, given the great potential for development in this field of science and industry, I invite you to submit your valuable articles to this Special Issue entitled “Novel Material and Technological Solutions in Foundry Engineering”, published in the journal Materials. The scope of this Special Issue is focused on cast materials characterized by high usable properties. The issue covers both ferrous alloys, such as cast steel or cast iron, and nonferrous metals alloys, such as Al, Cu, Mg, and others. Moreover, as the title suggests, this Special Issue welcomes articles concerning technologies of layered and composite castings, pressure casting, semi-solid casting, continuous casting, and new technology of heat treatment of castings.
Once again, I cordially invite you to submit your original research papers or review articles that describe the current state of the art within the scope of this Special Issue “Novel Material and Technological Solutions in Foundry Engineering”.
Prof. Dr. Tomasz Wróbel
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 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.
