Special Issue "Powder Metallurgy of Titanium Alloys"
A special issue of Metals (ISSN 2075-4701).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 March 2020.
The production of titanium (Ti) components by powder metallurgy (PM) is nowadays a recognized cost-effective alternative to the casting and wrought processing route. The success in obtaining high performance/cost ratios relies on multiple factors, such as remaining porosity, interstitial elements, grain size or microstructural homogeneity. Intense research is under development in the field of Ti PM all over the world, from powder production to the latest advances in additive manufacturing. PM techniques are not only interesting due to the potential lower cost provided but also due to the high versatility in the design and production of new alloys that could widen the applications to alternative industrial sectors.
This Special Issue intends to cover the most innovative topics and strategies currently followed in PM Ti that will include fabrication of powders, alloying design, powder processing by cold or hot pressing, thermomechanical processing, fast techniques, direct additive manufacturing in all the variants (powder bed, wire, laser cladding), post processing, heat treatments, composites, porous materials, coatings and functionally graded materials (FGM). Special attention will be paid on the control of microstructure and its relation with properties in particular fatigue studies, oxidation, corrosion and wear behavior.Prof. Dr. Elena Gordo
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.
