Special Issue "Mold and Tundish Metallurgy"
A special issue of Metals (ISSN 2075-4701).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 10 March 2020.
Interests: mold heat transfer and lubrication, structure of molten silicate slags, thermos-physical properties of slags, computational thermodynamics, controlling solidification structure using oxide inoculants, inclusion evolution during continuous casting and additive manufacturing, castability for high aluminum AHSS (advanced high-strength steels)
Considerable effort has been made on tundish and mold over the past few decades, which has yielded the present prosperity of the continuous casting process in terms of productivity and quality. Furthermore, in order to reply to the growing market demand for next-generation steel products such as AHSS (advanced high-strength steel) with super cleanness, we believe now is the best time to collect and review cutting edge technologies on tundish and mold.
This Special Issue will deal with the wide range of the latest advances in the fields of mold and tundish metallurgy, focusing on but not limited to the following:
- Improving steel cleanness by means of fluid flow controlling and slag optimization;
- Understanding and controlling the evolution of inclusions in tundish and mold;
- Decreasing nozzle clogging due to the deoxidizing products;
- The design of slags and fluxes for AHSS casting (especially high Al-containing steel grades);
- Optimizing the solidification structure of the AHSS cast;
- Mold heat transfer in a continuous casting mold.

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 1600 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.
