Special Issue "Titanium Alloys: Processing and Properties"
A special issue of Metals (ISSN 2075-4701).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2019)
Titanium alloys offer distinct advantages over competing metallic systems, particularly where high-performance engineering applications demand a contribution from low density and corrosion resistance. From the mid-twentieth century onwards, a combination of traditional processing techniques and novel, alloy-specific routes was adopted to optimise the microstructural evolution in these alloys in order to control static strength, fatigue behaviour, and creep resistance. Due to the allotropic nature of the alpha/beta constituent phases, the role of microtexture inherently plays a fundamental role in the final mechanical properties. It is hoped that the papers to be commissioned under this current special edition of the Metals journal will address a wide range of issues relating to alloy processing, microstructure, and the control of mechanical properties in this important class of material.

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.
