Topics in Mining, Metallurgy and Materials Engineering
30 Volumes | 2013 - 2021

Description

"Topics in Mining, Metallurgy and Materials Engineering" welcomes manuscripts in these three main focus areas: Extractive Metallurgy/Mineral Technology; Manufacturing Processes, and Materials Science and Technology. Manuscripts should present scientific solutions for technological problems. The three focus areas have a vertically lined multidisciplinarity, starting from mineral assets, their extraction and processing, their transformation into materials useful for the society, and their interaction with the environment.
