Topic Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, the emphasis is on increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of design and production processes and systems. Computer design is a crucial part of any single part development today, and this fact adds to the emphasis on a more accurate material behavior description from a material models point of view, as well as from the experimental characterization of the stress-strain behavior of the materials investigated under complex loading conditions. However, the simulation landscape is expanding and embracing newer technologies. The field of medicine—for example, computer-aided design (CAD)—plays a crucial role in improving biomedical systems for a variety of applications. CAD tools are extensively being used toward bringing about advancements and new developments, such as designing and manufacturing personalized medical devices, prostheses and implants, organ and tissue simulation, and healthcare diagnosis and management. CAD is also used in the drug design and delivery system with targeted biomolecules. The world of computer-aided design becomes more realistic with every technological step forward. As we progress in creating more and more real-world-like models, the applications will be expanded not just for engineering, but also in other areas. This Topic is dedicated to CAD applications in the fields of materials engineering and medicine by providing a platform for sharing ideas and expertise.

The topic is particularly created for the participants of the online conference “IKNC 2022, Oct, Material Engineering and Applied Sciences”, available at:

At this International Conference, we will select papers for presentation through a fair review, and selected papers will be recommended for publication in the following 5 journals after an additional review process and require an additional publication charge.
