Special Issue "The Physics of Joining and Additive Manufacturing"



Dear Colleagues,


Development, control, monitoring, and optimisation of advanced joining and additive manufacturing rely on our understanding of the involved physical phenomena. Similarly, the deposition of materials to form (near) net shapes requires a deep understanding of the processes and materials involved to control shape and properties. The properties of materials depend on their composition and thermal-mechanical history. Microstructures and properties can be affected by processing. The comprehensive scope of the present special issue includes all physical aspects of advanced joining and additive manufacturing processes of all materials. The present special issue aims at bringing together aspects of applied physics, engineering, materials science and chemistry, which are crucial for the development of efficient and cost-effective joining and additive manufacturing technologies. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

•                     The physical properties of fluids at elevated temperatures

•                     Plasma flow and mass transfer in welding and additive manufacturing

•                     Heat and fluid flow in melt pools

•                     Microstructure design and control

•                     Residual stresses and distortion

•                     Numerical simulations of welding and additive manufacturing

•                     Topology optimisation

•                     Applications of artificial intelligence

The categories of manuscript types that will be considered for publication include full-length original research articles, short communications, reviews, and perspectives. Manuscripts submitted to this special issue should contain new insights into the relationship between the processing, the structure and the properties of materials.


Keywords: Joining and additive manufacturing, Heat and mass transfer, Materials characterization, Microstructure development, Residual stress and distortion mitigation, Mechanical behavior, Defect formation in welding and additive manufacturing, Numerical modelling, Topology optimisation, Artificial intelligence and machine learning
