Special Issue "The Behaviours of Alloys under Thermo-Mechanical Treatment"
A special issue of Metals (ISSN 2075-4701).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (29 May 2020).
Interests: Control of the microstructure of light alloys, steels, Ni based alloys and MMCs by thermomechanical processing. Plastic deformation, damage, creep behaviour, dynamic and static recovery and recrystallization, precipitation and phase transformation kinetics. Methodology: experimental testing, materials modelling, and finite element simulations
Industrial processes, such as forging, rolling, and extrusion to form metallic materials, involve high temperatures and plastic deformations applied by different machines at the industrial scale. All these processes are, not only used to give a form to a metallic part, but also to modify its microstructure and, with this, its performance in service. On the other hand, during these processes, undesirable damage at different size scales can occur. This Special Issue is dedicated to scientific works that can describe, explain, model and simulate the flow, damage and microstructure evolutions of alloys during plastic deformation and thermal treatments. Experimental, as well as validated modelling results, are welcome, with the main focus being on material 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 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.
