Scope: Microstructure evolution in additive manufacturing occurs during repeated heating and cooling that involve both liquid->solid and solid->solid phase transitions. As a result, there is a need to understand phase and interface stability under large thermal gradients and thermomechanical reversals. Validity of theories developed for casting, heat treatment, and welding will be evaluated. In this issue, researchers addressing these issues through in-situ and ex-situ characterization and modeling are invited to submit papers to this topic.
