Special Issue in Applied Sciences: New Trends in Advanced Manufacturing in the Aeronautical Sector
In the current and complex mechanical engineering environment, computational modeling and simulation represent vital tools for gaining understanding and optimizing product designs and manufacturing processes at different levels. Today, the huge growth in computational power available for design, modeling, and simulation provides modern computational methods with a significant role in the analysis and optimization of many complex processes and designs, allowing them to be completed in a fast and effective manner, saving costs, time, and reducing waste. Therefore, it becomes essential to stay up to date with the latest trends and developments in the field of Mechanics.
We encourage submissions to this Special Issue which aim at sharing knowledge, experience, and up-to-date scientific information in the areas of design engineering, providing an overview on methodologies, tools, and applications for understanding how the application of emerging technologies impact critical engineering activities, such as product design, manufacturing, management and integration of information along the life cycle of the product/system. This Special Issue shall provide a comprehensive coverage of the experimental, computational, and analytical approaches that are usually employed to implement new products and processes in several different fields (automotive, biomedical, civil, aeronautics, etc.). These approaches also frequently aim to improve current products and processes, basing on new approaches to implement technologies. This Special Issue will not only be useful for researchers in these areas, but also for engineers engaged with advanced design and manufacturing problems.
This Special Issue will publish original contributions related but not limited to the topics described in the keywords.

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.
