Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

High-performance steel is widely used in engineering structures. Under the coupling effect of corrosive environment and load, some key structural members or connections are prone to fatigue failure. The damage mechanism of materials under the coupling action of corrosion and fatigue is complex. Several challenges still exist in corrosion fatigue evolution of materials. Moreover, it is still not clarified for the initiation and propagation of fatigue crack in the steel under corrosive condition and complex stress. Multi-scale simulation of structural degradation caused by material damage accumulation needs to be further investigated.

This special issue aims to collate research and review articles reported on the advances in the performance evolution of high-performance steel under the influence of corrosive environment and complex load, involving experimental study, numerical simulation of corrosion, corrosion protection, and fatigue modeling.

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.
