Advances in Metallic Materials Processing

Description

Several properties (physical, mechanical, and electrochemical) of engineering components are determined by its microstructure. On the other hand, processing routes and process parameters control its microstructure. Traditionally, metallic materials are processed by melting and casting route, by mechanical deformation and powder metallurgy routes, and subsequently, controlled heat treatment.

Emerging routes of metallic materials processing (fabrication) include semisolid processing, spray-forming, melt spinning, severe plastic deformation, and laser materials processing. Many of the problems, as experienced by traditional materials processing, may be solved by the application of nonconventional processing routes. Furthermore, an improved performance of the component is achieved when it is developed using novel processing routes.

Most of the advanced processing routes are confined to the laboratory scale predominantly due to lack of available information and widespread distribution of knowledge in this field.

The present issue of the journal aims at collating knowledge and information on state-of-the-art technologies for processing of metallic materials for strategic application, current status of research activities in this direction, the scope of properties enhancement, and possible areas of application. The special issue will also become an international platform for researchers to summarize the most recent developments and ideas in these areas, with emphasis given on technical and observational results obtained within the last ten years. The topics to be covered would include, but not limited to:

  • Rheocasting
  • Melt spinning
  • Spray-forming
  • Laser materials processing
  • Severe plastic deformation
