About this Topic:

Pure metals and metallic alloys are widely used in the fields of machinery, aerospace, medical treatment, modeling and design etc. According to the emerging technology development cycle report recently released by the international research and consulting organization Gartner in 2019, additive manufacturing will migrate from microscale to nanoscale level. The application of pure metals and metallic alloys powders to additional manufacturing requires the considerations of physical and mechanical characteristics of the nanopowder, which are also the trend of post-classical computing and communication. In your submitting paper, the numerical methods by molecular dynamics simulation method or other numerical skills are used to explore pure metals and metallic alloys powders, and obtain physical properties by means of material structure, powder particle size, heating rate, melting temperature, coalescence temperature, etc., in order to effectively reduce the time and cost of computation.
