Steel is the world’s most popular metal alloy. We can easily predict that this material will remain the most common metal alloy of the large-scale production in the 21st century; this is because steels are used in every part of the industry, beginning from low-carbon sheet steels for automotive applications, through structural steels for bridges, buildings, linepipes, ships, pressure vessels, etc., engineering steels, stainless steels, specialty steels, to tool steels. At the same time, most of the products are used as plates, sheets, bars, rods, wires, sections, and rails. All of them require rolling to form a semi-final product from a slab, billet, ingot, etc. Simultaneously to the dimention changes, a microstructure of the products is formed during subsequent casting, hot rolling and very often cold rolling. The advanced steels are usually produced in modern integrated technological lines to satisfy both high quality requirements and cost effectiveness. Physical and numerical simulations are effective tools, which enable to easily go from an experimental part of the research to an industrial reality.
This Special Issue will cover recent progress and new developments in researches and simulations in steel rolling including its all metallurgical and technological aspects. Researches and simulations on microstructure-property relationships of hot-rolled, thermomechanically processed and cold-rolled steels, as well as selected technological aspects of modern rolling mills for flat and long products and researches on gauge, profile, flatness, and surface quality inspection are covered.

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.
