Special Issue "Aluminium Alloys for Additive Manufacturing: Alloy Development, Structures, Properties and Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 August 2023) | Viewed by 3026
Interests: additive manufacturing; physical metallurgy; mcirostructure; mechanical property
Additive manufacturing offers the unique capability of improving the sustainability of metallic components production by reducing the need for tooling, machining and assembling. The application of aluminium alloys for additive manufacturing has further pushed the high-strength and lightweight limits of this field through innovative structure design and integrated fabrication. However, significant challenges in the areas of alloy processability, mechanical property and available alloys are still associated with this process, which needs to be addressed with further research efforts.
This Special Issue focus on the structures and properties of additively manufactured aluminum alloys. Research efforts in the field of novel alloy development, process optimization, structure, property and applications are all welcome.

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. Metals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs).
