Adhesion aspects of materials processed by Additive Manufacturing Techniques.

The adhesion of materials in AM refers to the bond strength between successive layers or between the substrate of AM machine and the deposited material. Insufficient and improper adhesion of layers results in reduced mechanical properties, part failure or compromised structural integrity and is chiefly affected by material properties, surface preparation, process parameters, pre-processing and post-processing techniques. The focus of this special issue is to provide alternative solutions such as parametric analysis of AM methods, evaluating the performance of bonded joint, analysis of bonding structure, examination of interface of layer, understanding tribological performance, evaluation of microstructure, defects, homogeneity, damage of bonded layers etc. to enhance and achieve optimal adhesion in AM processes.

The framework of this special issue is of interest to academicians, industrialists, researchers and scientists who are working in adhesion of different kinds of materials processed by AM techniques and to deliver innovative ideas to implement advanced strategies of adhesion in material processing.

The scope of this special issue includes (but is not limited to):

  • Adhesion joint of 3D printed materials
