Scope: Metastable systems have received considerable attention because, as thermodynamically non-equilibrium state of matters, they provide ample opportunities for properties control, and have found applications in structural and functional materials. This special topic focuses on advances in the fundamental understanding of mechanical properties of metastable systems containing disorder (e.g., grain boundaries, glass-crystal interfaces, amorphous solids). Papers are invited on topics including state-of-the-art characterization of disordered materials, advanced computation and modeling, non-equilibrium thermodynamics, and/or kinetic theory.
