Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Research on how plasticization affects the structural use of alloys on a matrix of ordered intermetallic phases (hereinafter: intermetallic alloys) has a long history. Due to the presence of interatomic metallic and covalent bonds, these materials exhibit a combination of the features of metallic and ceramic materials. As a result, they show a set of properties unattainable for other, especially classic, materials. The distinguishing features of intermetallic alloys are their excellent resistance to oxidation, carburization, and sulfation; their good corrosion resistance in seawater and molten salts; their high specific strength at room temperature, which increases with temperature; and their high level of resistance to abrasion, erosion, and cavitation.

The discovery of the causes of low fracture toughness and the development of methods to counteract this phenomenon have led to continuous progress in research on intermetallic alloys based mainly on phases from the equilibrium systems Ti–Al, Ni–Al, Fe–Al, Nb –Al and Mo–Si, in terms of both structural and functional applications.

This Special Issue will discuss the latest works focused on modifying the structure of intermetallic alloys and thus improving their performance, mainly in terms of mechanical properties. Topic of interest include improvements in manufacturing technology, further thermoplastic treatment, and other technological treatments that alter the behaviors of these alloys under load under the conditions of the broadly defined stress field

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.
