Advances in Additive Manufacturing

The capabilities of additive manufacturing (AM) continue to evolve rapidly, driven by both increasing industry demand and improved scientific understanding. In fact, the AM technology has evolved to the point where it is now considered as a nearly established advanced manufacturing process. This Focus Issue of the Australian Journal of Mechanical Engineering aims to collect the latest developments and applications related to AM of various materials. Original research and review papers are welcome that address topics such as:

  • Microstructures and properties of AM-fabricated materials
  • Postprocessing of AM-fabricated materials
  • AM of micro- or nano-architectured materials
  • Innovative digital technologies for AM including digital twins
  • Novel feedstock manufacturing processes for AM
  • Modelling and simulation for AM
  • Failure mechanisms and analysis of AM-fabricated materials
  • New frontiers in AM
  • Qualification of AM-fabricated materials and parts
  • Characterization techniques
