Special Issue "Characterization of Welded Joints"
A special issue of Metals (ISSN 2075-4701).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 19 July 2019
Welding remains as one of the most important manufacturing processes in the metalworking industry. Its critical importance is revealed in many applications, from small devices such as pacemakers to huge metallic structures. The development of new metallic materials is an important challenge for welding, because it presents new difficulties that need to be overcome. Furthermore, welding processes such as friction stir welding, laser, and electron beam have significant potential for investigation. Thus, this Special Issue intends to disseminate high-quality research carried out in the area of the welding processes, namely, in the characterization of welded joints considering different processes and challenging alloys, taking advantage of welding parameters’ regulation and the use of different filler metals, thus improving by the properties of welded joints.

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 1500 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.
