This Special Issue of Metals, is dedicated to the recent advances in low-carbon and stainless steels. Although these types of steels are not new, they are still receiving a great attention from both research and industry sectors, due to their wide range of applications and their complex microstructure/behavior under different conditions. The microstructure of low carbon and stainless steels resulted from solidification, phase transformation and hot working is complex, which, in turn, affects their performance under different working conditions. A detailed understanding of the microstructure/property/performance for these steels has been the aim of steel scientists for a long time.
For this special issue, we are inviting papers on different aspects of these steels including their solidification, thermomechanical processing, phase transformation, texture, etc., and their corrosion, wear, fatigue and creep properties. We are also interested in papers which use predictive models at different scales to describe processing and/or properties in these steels. Finally, we particularly welcome novel research on duplex stainless steels due to their current significant growth.

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 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.
