Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Increasing demands for durability and reliability of elements, components, and interacting systems which operate in challenging conditions, such as significantly high/low temperatures, high pressures, complex loading configurations, exposure to electrochemical changes, and severe lubrication conditions require innovative and novel design and engineering solutions. In recent years, surface engineering, including surface modifications and coatings, has made significant contributions to enhancing service life of components and systems.
Nanoscale developments have allowed engineers and scientists to study and investigate nanocomposites to engineer surfaces applied in severe operational conditions. Although nano or nanocomposite coating is a relatively new area in terms of industrial applications, there are major benefits to be realised. Research into nanocoatings has been advanced in recent years mainly due to their robust, reliable, and cost-effective attributes. Control and optimisation of properties at the nanoscale has enabled researchers to achieve the best possible solutions.
This Special Issue welcomes the submission of original research papers and comprehensive reviews that report new research findings in terms of nano and nanocomposite coating development applied in, but not limited to, tribology, corrosion, cavitation, fluid flow, and heat transfer.

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. Nanomaterials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2400 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.
