Special Issue Information
Products manufactured by sheet metal forming are still extremely relevant in many industries today. In this context, formability is one of the critical aspects in this kind of process. The achievement of adequate knowledge around the mechanical behavior of sheet material during its deformation involves the analysis of complex phenomena that ultimately condition its formability, e.g., finite strain plasticity, hardening effects, damage, texture development, and defect formation.
The current Special Issue is focused on the most recent advances in both the experimental characterization and numerical modeling of sheet formability in processes using different metallic alloys formed under general operating conditions. Novel experimental techniques and testing set-ups together with numerical simulations including advanced constitutive models defined both at macroscopic and microscopic scales are especially welcome.

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.
