“Lamellar structure in structural metallic material and its mechanical property”

 The lamellar structures, which are typified pearlitic and lath martensitic structures in steel, have been widely used in structural metallic materials. For example, the piano wire processed through cold drawing of pearlitic structure exhibits excellent delayed fracture resistance, as well as the highest tensile strength in steels. In recent years, the characteristic features of various lamella structures, and the mechanism of mechanical property of structural metallic material with a lamellar structure have been deeply clarified, due to the remarkable advances of the microstructural characterization technology, computational science, etc. This special issue gathers the recent development and knowledge on the lamellar structures (including laminated structures) and the mechanical property in structural metallic materials. The topics cover a variety of lamellar and laminated structures which are formed through solidification, heat treatment, thermomechanical treatment, etc., in addition to the pearlitic and lath martensitic structures in steel. The researchers and engineers are encouraged to submit their research results which contribute to the development of structural metallic materials with a lamellar or laminated structure.
