Special Issue "Rolling of Metals"
A special issue of Metals (ISSN 2075-4701).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 April 2020.
Metal rolling remains a relevant deformation process employed for the high volume production of wrought metal sheets, plates, bars, pipes and rods that are used in subsequent metalworking processes. As rolled metal products continue to comprise a substantial portion of manufactured metal products, the rolling of metals has attained a position of major importance in the metalworking industry. The complexity of metal rolling includes the refinement of the metal microstructure and texture, which has a distinct influence on establishing the final mechanical properties of the metal and has led to extensive research in this field. High near-surface shear stress, along with the temperature have a distinct influence on the formation of oxides and surface layers of the rolled products. Therefore, the study of the complex interactions occurring at the work roll and rolled metal surface have yielded several research publications. These interactions have been noted to be influenced by the thermo-physical and mechanical properties as well as the surface conditions of the work roll and work piece; the lubrication conditions; and the rolling parameters engaged. The interactions at the work roll/work piece interface have also been observed to generate roll coating on the work roll surface, which has been thought to be beneficial to the rolling process and has been the subject of recent research in aluminum and titanium alloys. The back transfer of this adhesion of the work roll surface have been noted to result in surface defects on the rolled metal surface, which has also been a topic of interest in many articles. Nevertheless, research on metal rolling continues to yield many fruitful results.
For this Special Issue of Metals, we welcome reviews and articles in the areas of principle, computer-aided modeling, microstructural evolution, near-surface microstructure development and characterization, roll coating, lubrication (coolant), and the tribology of rolling.

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.
