Special Issue "Static and Dynamic Recrystallization, and Phase Transformation in Metallic Materials"
A special issue of Metals (ISSN 2075-4701).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2020.
Interests: thermomechanical processing; development of novel alloys; mechanical properties and deformation behavior of materials; phase transformation in metal alloys; static and dynamic materials testing; high-strain rate deformation; static and dynamic recrystallization; materials characterization; texture and anisotropy of materials; thermodynamics of materials; additive manufacturing of metallic materials
The occurrence of static and dynamic recrystallization and phase transformation has been the backbone of manufacturing and metallurgical engineering in the past decade to maximize the mechanical properties of alloys during processing. Having an in-depth understanding and modelling of these complex metallurgical phenomena generated huge successes both in optimizing the properties of commercial alloys and in developing novel materials. However, despite significant progress in this area, the rise of sophisticated materials testing methods and characterization techniques has presented opportunities to further push the mechanical properties of alloys to their limit by controlling the microstructure.
This Special Issue of Metals invites experts from around the world to submit papers related to static and dynamic recrystallization and phase transformation, including transformation-induced plasticity, of various alloys such as but not limited to steels, nickel-based alloys, titanium alloys, magnesium alloys, aluminum alloys, and high-entropy alloys. Although these phenomena are common during deformation and cyclic heat treatment, papers related to other materials processing such as additive manufacturing are also welcome. This Issue is particularly interested in the microstructural analysis of alloys as well as the modelling of their behavior at room and high temperatures.

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.
