    Special Issue on Material Surface Engineering


    An engineering component usually fails when its surface cannot adequately withstand the external forces or environment to which it is subjected. The choice of a surface material with the appropriate thermal, optical, magnetic and electrical properties and sufficient resistance to wear, corrosion and degradation, is crucial to its functionality. Sometimes technological progress and manufacturing efficiency may be constrained solely by surface requirements. The goal of this special issue is to provide a platform for scientists and academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in the area of Material Surface Engineering.


    In this special issue, we invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles that explore Material Surface Engineering. In this special issue, potential topics include, but are not limited to:



    • Surface cleaning techniques
    • Surface pretreatment
    • Materials design and surface engineering
    • Material surface modification
    • Properties of material surface
    • Surface corrosion failure



    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly specify the Special Issue” under your manuscript title. The research field “Special Issue – Material Surface Engineering should be selected during your submission.
