Special Journal Issue on Additive Manufacturing for Thermal Engineering Applications

Jan 5, 2021

The ASME Journal of Thermal Science and Engineering Applications is currently accepting manuscripts for a special issue focusing on the topic, “Additive Manufacturing for Thermal Engineering Applications.” Authors who are interested in having their manuscripts included in the special issue, to be published in October 2021, should submit their manuscripts by February 1, 2021.
Since the emergence of additive manufacturing (AM) in the late 1980s with stereo-lithography, numerous other techniques have been invented and commercialized under the broad umbrella of 3D printing. Significant research has been devoted to process improvement, novel materials, design tools for AM, and applications. However, most real-world applications have only been realized in the last decade. AM has opened a new design space to thermal engineers for realizing unique thermal systems and components by removing the limits of conventional manufacturing. It has reduced the cycle time for design, fabrication, and testing iterations. Today, AM is used for rapid prototyping as well as production parts in fields ranging from biomedical to thermal engineering. AM is becoming its own discipline with recent emphasis on materials, novel processes, and design tools that include machine learning and artificial intelligence.
This special issue of the ASME Journal of Thermal Science and Engineering Applications will highlight original research articles on AM as it relates to thermal engineering applications.
Manuscripts to be included in the special issue should concentrate on a range of topics around co-design and optimization for AM,  including material selection, process development and parameter optimization, thermal-fluidic and structural simulation, and techno-economic cost modeling; verification, validation, and uncertainty quantification related to thermal-fluid performance arising from build variability and post processing; quality control and reliability assessment, destructive and nondestructive testing; and materials development and characterization, metals, polymers, ceramics, and novel materials.
Manuscripts should be submitted electronically to the journal by February 1, 2021, via Journals Connect at journaltool.asme.org. Authors who have an account should log in and select “Submit Paper” at the bottom of the page. Authors without an account should select “Submissions” and follow the steps. At the Paper Submittal page, authors should select the “ASME Journal of Thermal Science and Engineering Applications” and then select the special issue “Additive Manufacturing for Thermal Engineering Applications.” Early submissions are strongly encouraged.  Papers submitted by February 1, 2021 will be reviewed in time for inclusion in the special issue.  Papers received after that date may still be considered for the special issue, if time and space permit. Papers that are not ready for production in time for inclusion in the special issue may be considered for a regular issue of the journal.
The special issue guest editors are Vikrant Aute, Research Professor, University of Maryland, U.S., vikrant@umd.edu; and Vinod Narayanan, Professor, University of California Davis, U.S., vnarayanan@ucdavis.edu.
