Manuscript Submission Deadline: July 01, 2024
Guest Editor: Soumya Nag
Co-Guest Editors: Jonah Klemm-Toole
Sponsored By: Additive Manufacturing
Publication Date: January 2025
Keywords: Additive Manufacturing, Advanced Materials, Modeling and Simulation, Phase Transformations, Monitoring
Scope: This special topic will present the latest developments that explore and integrate the following breakthrough AM functionalities: (i) Functionally graded materials: multi-material builds via sequential or simultaneous injection of raw materials, or single material with dramatically different process conditions for tailored hybrid microstructures; (ii) Metamaterials: topological and/or shape optimization to exploit light-weighting and enhanced property response; (iii) Multi-modal manufacturing: integrating additive with conventional manufacturing techniques, such as additive, subtractive processes, and/or external fields to achieve the right balance among materials properties, part resolution and build efficiency; (iv) Advances in hardware, process monitoring, process control methods, and technologies to enable breakthrough functionalities.
