A special issue of Journal of Manufacturing and Materials Processing (ISSN 2504-4494).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 April 2024 | Viewed by 1649
Interests: design for additive manufacturing (DfAM); lattice (cellular) structures; metamaterials; laser powder bed fusion (L-PBF); topology optimization and generative design
Additive Manufacturing (AM) has transformed the way structures are designed and produced, enabling the creation of complex geometries and structures that were previously difficult or impossible to produce using traditional manufacturing methods. One of the most exciting areas of development in AM is the creation of lattice structures and cellular metamaterials. Lattice structures are lightweight yet possess exceptional mechanical, thermal, and energy absorption properties, making them ideal for a broad range of applications, including aerospace and biomedical devices, as well as energy storage systems. Cellular metamaterials are engineered materials that have unique and tunable properties such as mechanical, thermal, and electromagnetic properties beyond those found in nature, due to their unique cellular structure.
This Special Issue is dedicated to exploring the latest developments in lattice structures and metamaterials fabricated through AM. We welcome submissions focused on designing lattice structures and metamaterials for AM, utilizing optimization, generative, and AI-based algorithms and design tools. We also welcome articles that address the design and optimization of lattice structures and metamaterials for specific applications, the mechanical behavior and performance of AM lattice structures and metamaterials, and the development of new AM processes and materials for the production of these structures.
We invite researchers from academia and industry who are working in this exciting field to submit their research to this Special Issue. This is an excellent opportunity to share your work, exchange ideas, and form a comprehensive collection of research in this field.

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 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. Journal of Manufacturing and Materials Processing 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 1600 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.
