Experimental investigations of the thermomechanical processing (TMP) of metals clearly demonstrates that technological process tuning parameters have a great influence on both the microstructure and texture evolution, which determine the chemical, physical, or mechanical properties. During the processing chain, the behavior of a polycrystalline material is correlated with the grain size, grain crystal structure, and crystallographic orientation. The mesoscopic transformations of polycrystalline aggregates, involving microstructural and crystallographic changes on the grain level, can be interpreted by a vast body of modelling approaches developed. Advances in modelling have created a solid platform for understanding the evolution of microstructural features in polycrystalline systems during particular processing step and bring to light many hidden aspects of production as well as assist in revealing the behavior of materials under specific circumstances. Since mesoscopic changes in TMP are “genetically” connected, the modelling techniques enable tuning particular processing step to tailor the desired material performance for a given application.
In this Special Issue, we intend to provide a wide spectrum of articles dealing with modelling of microstructural aspects involved in deformation and recrystallization as well as simulation of microstructure-based or texture-based properties in various metals. The latest advances in the theoretical interpretation of mesoscopic transformations based on experimental observations are welcome. The studies dealing with the modelling of structure-property relationships are of particular interest.

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. Metals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
