Advances of Computational and Numerical Modeling in Product Design and Development

Emerging technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), augmented/virtual/mixed reality (AR/VR/MR), and cloud computing have the potential to drastically change the activities, output, and performance of product design and development (PDD) in the early phases. In the design and implementation of products, PDD is inextricably linked. Engineering design is frequently a significant component of product development innovation, yet intriguing solutions that are prohibitively expensive or difficult to construct may never see the light of day. PDD advancement tends to minimize obstacles to implementation and expand design freedom, but it may also impose unique design constraints. As a result, new design methodologies and tools are required to assist engineers in navigating the unique design space formed by advanced manufacturing. The design of multifunctional, multi-material, multi-physics, and/or multiscale parts and systems is one example of how advanced manufacturing opens up new opportunities. These designs must take into account how the materials change during the manufacturing process, as well as manufacturing-induced flaws.

This special issue focuses on cutting-edge concepts in PDD. The special issue also includes virtual simulation and reverse engineering, additive manufacturing, product manufacturing, numerical simulation, and computational modeling for machining mechanisms. Advanced manufacturing methods are in greater demand in a variety of sectors, from biomedical to aerospace. Modeling and mechanistic understanding of any physical phenomenon are the ways to create, hybridize, and improve manufacturing processes that can do more than what is currently possible. This special issue aims to share the latest research, theories, and practices in product design and manufacturing technology in order to improve industrial performance. This special issue will focus on how traditional and more sophisticated modeling methods can work together and how virtual manufacturing processes can be a source of new information. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Product design and development for circular business models
  • Design for manufactural hollow structures, cellular structures, multiscale structures, multi-material structures, and composite structures
  • Modelling, simulation, and control of manufacturing system
  • Design optimization methods such as topology optimization, size optimization, and shape optimization to support advanced manufacturing
  • Design for heterogeneous materials systems using hybrid manufacturing
  • Sustainable product design and development in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)
  • Sustainability in early product design and development
  • Democratization, fairness, inclusion, bias, and ethics in emerging PDD technologies and methods
  • Security, privacy, and intellectual property concerns in PDD
