Non-destructive Characterization of Polycrystalline Materials in 3D by Laboratory Diffraction Contrast Tomography

Laboratory diffraction contrast tomography (LabDCT) enables the user to reconstruct three-dimensional (3D) grain maps of polycrystalline materials. For each grain, the size, orientation, and 3D morphology including the number of faces can be …

Accurate Prediction of Melt Pool Shapes in Laser Powder Bed Fusion by the Non-Linear Temperature Equation Including Phase Changes

Model validity: isotropic versus anisotropic conductivity to capture AM Benchmark Test AMB2018-02

In this contribution, we validate a physical model based on a transient temperature equation (including latent heat), w.r.t. the experimental set AMB2018-02 provided within the additive manufacturing benchmark series, established at the National …

About this journal

Integrating Materials and Manufacturing Innovation is committed to building a seamless and dynamic materials and manufacturing design framework supporting the accelerated discovery, development, and application of materials and processes. The journal explores innovations from the discovery of materials through their manufacture that support the practice of Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME). IMMI focuses on presenting new experimental and computational tools, data analysis and management methods, and valuable multiscale datasets, and on the impact the use of an ICME approach has on advancing materials and manufacturing technologies.

As of January 1, 2017, IMMI will convert from an Open Access journal to a subscription journal. IMMI will continue to be published by Springer Nature. All new manuscripts should be submitted via the new editorial submission site

IMMI is a publication of The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS).
