Special Issue "Additive Manufacturing: Fundamentals and Practice"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 October 2021).
Interests: additive manufacturing; electrical erosion; ceramics; metals; alloys
Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Analysis of the modern production market and industry shows that up to 60% can be products produced by additive manufacturing in the production of the responsible metallic parts. Simultaneously, the technology develops, and plenty of authors present their ideas on improving its surface quality, productivity, solutions for jerk problems, improving the parts’ exploitation properties, and introducing a new class of materials to be produced by additive manufacturing and new approaches.
The Special Issue is devoted to the growing importance of additive manufacturing for productions from metallic, ceramic, and composite materials. Original research and review articles devoted to the latest achievements in additive manufacturing are welcome for publication. The submission can be devoted to researching the actual science-intensive problem of additive manufacturing or the mathematical support and physical explanation for the observed phenomena in the working zone.
Possible topics can be methods and techniques to improve the surface quality and functionality of working surfaces of the parts, produced by additive manufacturing, improvement of production productivity, research on the solutions for actual problems (jerk), improvement of physical, mechanical, and exploitation characteristics of the parts, development approach in the creation of new composites produced by additive manufacturing, introduction of new materials (ceramics, steels, alloys, high-entropy alloys) for additive manufacturing, development of mathematical support, and physical explanation for additive manufacturing fundamentals.

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 papers will be 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. Technologies is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1400 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.
