Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Cast materials are used in most of our products, ranging from simple household appliances to advanced products, such as cars, lorries, and aircraft. In all of these applications, cast materials offer a unique combination of function and performance.

Increasing requirements for lighter, stiffer, and stronger materials with increasing requirements for thermal transport properties and corrosion resistance are moving the boundaries for material performance further. Aspects critical to delivering an improved performance are the alloy content and the microstructure, especially in light weight alloys, including aluminium alloys.

Accordingly, this Special Issue, titled “Casting and Manufacturing Processes of Aluminum”, is intended to review and present the cutting-edge state-of-the-art developments in the production of high quality aluminium alloy castings, including other manufacturing processes involved in the production of castings, such as machining, heat treatment, and hot isostatic pressing. The latest developments in the various aspects of the creation of high-performance microstructures in aluminum are included. Finally, the effect of the processing and structure on the performance of aluminium castings, as well as the applicability of traditional and modern approaches for fatigue design, will be addressed.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 2600 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.
