Special Issue "Additive Manufacturing Technologies and Its Applications Using Advanced Materials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 April 2021.
Interests: development of additive manufacturing (AM) process; applications of AM; design for AM; numerical simulation of metal AM processes
One of the major issues of additive manufacturing (AM) today is the development of novel AM technologies using advanced materials to expand scientific and industrial applications. The part quality, which depends on AM technologies, is greatly influenced by applied AM processes, deposition methodologies, and post-processing techologies. Numerical analyses, including heat transfer and residual stress analyses, are needed to create desired parts without defects using the AM process. The application of the AM process using advanced materials can improve functionality and desired characteristics of the product.
Therefore, this Special Issue shall focus on recent works related to additive manufacturing technologies and their applications using advanced materials. Topics can include but are not limited to:
- Additive manufacturing process using advanced materials;
- Post-processing technology of AM parts (including heat treatment and microstructure modification, etc.);
- Application of AM technology to improve functionality of parts;
- Application of AM technology using advanced materials;
- Numerical analysis of additive manufacturing process for metallic and non-metallic materials;
- Review of AM technologies and their applications using advanced materials.

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. 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 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.
