Special Issue Information
Heat-resistant steels and alloys play important roles in high-temperature applications such as fossil fuel-fired power plants, chemical plants, airplane jet engines, etc. Despite the current strong pressure to exclude fossil fuel, especially coal, power generation, it is continuously important to make efforts to improve the heat resistance and long-term properties of the materials for higher efficiency of thermal power generation systems and also to design new materials that are adaptable to new operating conditions such as high-load fluctuation and supercritical carbon dioxide power cycles. The importance of designing new alloys and in understanding degradation mechanisms for improved jet engine operations remains unchanged due to the forecasted increase in the commercial aviation market until 2038.
This Special Issue highlights recent progress and innovations in the fields of heat-resistant steels and alloys from a wide perspective, including alloy design, characterization of microstructure formation and stability, creep deformation and fracture, creep-fatigue interaction, degradation mechanisms, oxidation, and high-temperature corrosion but not excluding other topics. This Special Issue focuses on metallic materials that include creep resistant ferritic and austenitic steels, superalloys, titanium alloys, intermetallic compounds, and refractory metals. Researchers are, therefore, encouraged to submit a research paper on their recent work but also a review paper on the topics.Prof. Dr. Satoru Kobayashi

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 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 2000 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.
