Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

There is a long history in the development of solidification, which has a major role in various fields both now and in the future, such as aircraft, spacecraft, nuclear, automobile, microelectronics, etc. With the increasing requirements for high-performance metallic materials, new solidification techniques continue to arise under extraordinary conditions, including high cooling rate, containerless, high undercooling, microgravity, high pressure, strong magnetic/acoustic/electric field, etc.

As a result, this Special Issue is focused on solidification under extraordinary conditions for various metallic materials. Articles concerning novel techniques, liquid structures, thermophysical properties, composition design, microstructure/property relationships, phase diagrams, phase constitution, XRD, and thermal analysis are welcome, concerning both experimental and simulation studies.

This Special Issue will cover research topics including but not limited to the following:

  • Dendritic growth;
  • Microstructure;
  • Phase constitution;
  • Phase separation;
  • Phase diagram;
  • Atomic structure of liquid metal;
  • High undercooling;
  • High cooling rate;
  • Levitation containerless technique;
  • High magnetic/acoustic/electric field;
  • Varied gravitational field.

Thank you for your interest and support.

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.
