This book covers the latest advances in materials and structures in manufacturing and processing including additive and subtractive processes. It is 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 a number of different fields such as aerospace, mechanical engineering, materials science and biomedicine. Biomimetic principles have also been integrated.
