Advances in Manufacturing and Processing of Materials and Structures cover the latest advances in materials and structures in manufacturing and processing including additive and subtractive processes. It's intended to provide a compiled resource that reviews details of the advances that have been made in recent years in manufacturing and processing of materials and structures. A key development incorporated within this book is 3D printing, which is being used to produce complex parts including composites with odd shape fibers, as well as tissue and body organs. This book has been tailored for engineers, scientists and practitioners in different fields such as aerospace, mechanical engineering, materials science and biomedicine. Biomimetic principles have also been integrated.


  • Provides the latest state-of-the art on different manufacturing processes, including a biomimetics viewpoint
  • Offers broad coverage of advances in materials and manufacturing
  • Written by chapter authors who are world-class researchers in their respective fields
  • Provides in-depth presentation of the latest 3D and 4D technologies related to various manufacturing disciplines
  • Provides substantial references in each chapter to enhance further study
