Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The use of metal powder-based additive manufacturing (AM) has expanded greatly in recent years due to process flexibility and the capacity to create parts of complex geometries with reduced waste when compared to traditional manufacturing methods. These methods include both fusion-based and solid-state AM, such as powder bed fusion, the directed deposition of powders, cold spray AM, additive fraction stir, etc. These techniques are applied in a wide scope of applications given their ability to accommodate many feedstock powders with differing compositions, sizes, and morphologies.

The goal of this Special Issue is to highlight research regarding the characterization and evaluation of the microstructure and mechanical properties of additively manufactured parts and their feedstock powders. This evaluation will guide the understanding of the relationships between feedstock powder and the properties of additively manufactured parts. Publication topics may incorporate powder characterization, powder pre-processing, heat treatments, new alloy compositions, microstructural evolution, mechanical properties, and process modeling and optimization. Material systems of interest include, but are not limited to, aluminum and its alloys, steels, titanium and its alloys, refractory metals, nickel alloys, and copper and its alloys.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Materials 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 2300 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.
