Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Metal-based additive manufacturing parts make up a significant and growing proportion of 3D printing, with increasingly diverse areas of application in the medical, aerospace, and automotive sectors.

Many factors, including materials and processes, and their expanding use as final or structural parts have contributed to this growth and have led to the need for specialized research in this field, which is of importance in many branches of engineering.

It is well known that several characteristics of printed parts, such as mechanical properties, depend on printing parameters. Therefore, analysis of the influence of manufacturing parameters on printed parts is a key factor in order to optimize the printing process as well as to predict and understand the material properties.

We encourage scientists and engineers to submit papers for inclusion in this Special Issue. There are no restrictions on the type of manufacture, metal, or field of application. Papers on theory, experiments, design, simulation, etc. will be considered for publication, and we expect that many will contain aspects of all of these.

A non-exhaustive list of possible items would be:

  ·Process parameters

  ·Experimental testing

  ·Constitutive models

  ·Mesostructure design and effects

  ·Numerical simulation

  ·Discrete element method

  ·Finite element analysis

  ·Computational fluid dynamics

  ·Phase field simulation

  ·Cellular automata simulation

  ·Molecular dynamics

  ·Machine learning

  ·Static and impact strength

  ·Fatigue and fracture

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2300 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI’s English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
