Special Issue "Bainite and Martensite Transformation in Steel"
A special issue of Metals (ISSN 2075-4701).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 January 2020).
Interests: alloy design; phase transformations; steels; additive manufacturing; textures; cristallography
Although the discovery of martensite in steels dates back to 1890 and the work of German microscopist Adlof Martens, and although martensitic steels have been produced by mankind as early as 13 centuries BC, bainitic and martensitic transformations are still the topic of vivid research and vigorous debates. This quest for a better understanding of the thermodynamics, kinetics and crystallography of those transformations in steels has opened the way to the development of new steel families that are becoming more and more relevant for the industrial world, the automotive industry in particular.
This special issue aims at reviewing the current challenges in the understanding, characterization and modeling of bainite and martensite in steels. It is devoted to the latest research in the development of innovative thermo-mechanical processing of complex-phase or multiphase steels. Fundamental research on the characterization of the thermodynamics, kinetics and crystallography of those transformations are also welcome.

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. 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 1600 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.
