Special Issue Information
Steel and its alloys form the largest group of engineering materials. Their desirable mechanical and physical properties are their principal attributes. Modern construction must meet the function for which it has been made and be safe and cost-effective to maintain. To accomplish the above, a structure's design should seek the best possible solution. Such a design is usually based on the optimal material mechanical, physical, and chemical parameters. In order to select the optimal material for the manufacture of structural elements, it is necessary to have data on the behavior of the material in different conditions. This Special Issue will focus on experimental research and analysis of steel, and in particular, the topics will touch on not only experimental findings, but also microstructural and mechanical investigations, surface properties, numerical approaches, and analytical models for mechanical behavior.

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.
