Co-Guest Editors: Andrew Kao
Publication Date: October 2020
Keywords: Advanced processing; modeling and simulation; solidification fundamentals, external fields; defects
Scope: The introduction of external fields, including electromagnetic fields, ultrasonic excitation, and mechanical shearing to solidification processes can significantly alter solidification behavior. This encompasses a wide range of applications in casting, welding, remelting, and additive manufacturing processes that have been explored in industry to refine grains, homogenize segregation, prevent defect formation, and break up agglomeration of particles. Publications focused on new scientific discoveries, engineering advancement and industrial applications are solicited under this topic.
