Special Issue "Additive Manufacturing for Composite Materials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 28 February 2022.
The development of additive manufacturing has made it possible to produce small quantities of various parts and to realize complex shapes. This has made a high-functional lightweight structure possible by overcoming the limitations of design based on traditional manufacturing methods. In addition, as the diversity of available materials increases, functional additive manufacturing attempts are being made not only due to structural complexity but also material complexity. In particular, additive manufacturing based on complexing between various materials can be used in various ways in aviation, automobiles, sports, and national defense, where weight and function are important. While it has taken a lot of time and cost to fabricate composite materials structures in traditional production processes, additive manufacturing is very helpful in overcoming these limitations based on structural complexity. However, there are still very limited examples of composite material printing and its practical application in industry. Therefore, in this Special Issue, we are going to deal with research cases based on various functional materials and composite materials such as ceramics and fibers, and practical industrial applications.

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. Applied Sciences 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 2000 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.
