About This Topic

Developments in subtractive and additive manufacturing techniques aid in the implementation of Industry 4.0. This special issue focuses on, new trending applications, novel manufacturing strategies, parametric process optimization, innovative advanced materials, complex product geometries, and novel research findings on the fundamentals of process physics of additive and subtractive manufacturing processes are emphasized and debated. Experimental and computational approaches at levels from nano-, micro-, meso-scale manufacturing for a range of engineering materials such as metals, ceramics, organic polymers, composites, or biomaterials are of interest.
Potential topics include but are not limited to:

A)  Additive manufacturing specific:

  • Metal, ceramics, polymer, and composite printing
  • Multi-materials printing
  • Optimization of process control
  • Quality control-based concerns
  • Sensing and control-based concerns
  • Numerical simulations of additive manufacturing processes

B)  Subtractive Manufacturing Specific;

  • Hybrid machining processes
  • Machining processes like turning, milling grinding, drilling etc.
  • Non-conventional machining processes
  • Ultrasonic assisted machining processes
  • Numerical simulations of subtractive manufacturing processes

The Effect of Rake Angle and Cutting Edge Radius on the Orthogonal Cutting Process of Ti6Al4V Alloy

Received: 23 February 2024;  Published: 18 June 2024;  doi: 10.21926/rpm.2402013


This paper investigates the effect of rake angle, α, cutting edge radius, r, and feed rate, f, on the cutting force and cutting zone temperature during orthogonal dry cutting of Ti6Al4V. A numerical model representative of the 2D orthogonal cutting process is developed using ABAQUS/Explicit software. Johnson-Cook, (JC) constitutiv [...]

Mesoscale Modeling of Extrusion and Solidification During Material Extrusion Additive Manufacturing

Received: 22 August 2023;  Published: 25 October 2023;  doi: 10.21926/rpm.2304033


In this work, we apply a multiphysics approach to fused deposition modeling to simulate extrusion and solidification. Restricting the work to a single line scan, we focus on the application of polylactic acid. In addition to heat, momentum and mass transfer, the solid/liquid/vapor interface is simulated using a front-tracking, [...]
