Call for Papers – Special Issue in MDPI Materials „Characterization Methods for Metal Cast Processes“
The foundry is currently changing. In view of the fact that environmental policies are becoming more severe, and with respect to the development of alternative engines, production is also on the move. One of the main challenges of modern foundries is the development of integral components and the design of efficient cast processes, which meet the demands of the industrial market. This also includes the extensive use of the potential of cast materials and the targeted, positive influence on their properties.
The combination of processes and materials forms the basis for forward-looking developments in the engineering of cast components and enables the production of high-precision components, which are competitively viable.
This Special Issue addresses advanced topics concerning the quality of cast parts, the efficiency of cast processes, and the characterization of cast materials. All characterization methods concerning castings and cast processes are welcome, as well as the analysis of different kinds of metals, for example, high entropy alloys.
It is my pleasure to invite you to submit your work to this Special Issue.
