Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Throughout the development history of material processing, plastic processing has comprehensively developed from forging to stamping, extrusion, rolling, and spinning. The forming medium has developed from solid to liquid to a gaseous state. The processes have developed from single-step to multi-step forming, and to incremental forming. The forming conditions have gradually developed from a single temperature field to multi-energy coupling environments, such as electric fields, vibration fields, and magnetic fields. Additionally, forming process simulation has gradually developed into a macro-meso-micro-dimension and organization–property–size-integrated process. In the future, faced with the world’s technological development and human progress, advanced forming technologies will be further explored in such key fields as extreme forming, composite forming, and intelligent forming. All of these issues shall be the focuses of researchers in advanced forming, acting as an important support for transforming the world’s science and technology in the future.

This Special Issue will focus on metal forming technology, some new metal forming processes, multi-scale modeling, material failure behavior, microstructure and performance, and studies on the influence of process parameters on the forming process will be welcomed.

Prof. Dr. Tao Wang
Guest Editor

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. Metals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
