Special Issue Information
Although the manufacturing of metallic materials is considered a mature scientific field, spanning over a couple of centuries of scientific research, the need for developing low-carbon-footprint high-performance products has resulted in the discovery of sustainable smart manufacturing technologies, new processing routes, and advanced characterization techniques. Therefore, this Special Issue on “Metals Manufacturing Techniques” is a necessary initiative. Through manufacturing technology, molten metals or semi-finished products can be transformed into various final products. Additive manufacturing, casting followed by downstream deformation processes (e.g., rolling/extrusion), welding, and semi-solid processing are examples of some manufacturing techniques that are widely used. In addition to geometry/design specifications, the main common objective of all these manufacturing techniques is to produce high-performance value-added products. The performance of the products is related to their chemistry, their structure, their mechanical/physical properties, and the processing routes used. Therefore, the relationship between these parameters must be fully understood and exploited.
For this Special Issue on “Metals Manufacturing Techniques”, we welcome reviews and original research works on topics including, but not limited to, the advanced manufacturing of metals and alloys, innovative processing routes, novel value-added alloys created by nanostructured engineering products, advanced microstructure characterization and property analysis techniques, high-strength steels, metal matrix composites, light metal alloys, high-temperature alloys, corrosion-resistant materials, high-entropy alloys, advanced material process simulations, computational modeling for microstructure prediction and the corresponding property evolution, theoretical advances in thermodynamics modeling and precipitation kinetics, and phase equilibria and diffusion modeling in metallics materials.
