Horizons of modern molecular dynamics simulation in digitalised solid freeform fabrication with advanced materials
Goel, S. (2020). Horizons of modern molecular dynamics simulation in digitalised solid freeform fabrication with advanced materials. Materials Today Chemistry.
Our ability to shape and finish a component by combined methods of fabrication including (but not limited to) subtractive, additive and/or no theoretical mass-loss/addition during the fabrication is now popularly known as solid freeform fabrication. Fabrication of a telescope mirror is a typical example where grinding and polishing processes are first applied to shape the mirror and thereafter an optical coating is usually applied to enhance its optical performance. The area of nanomanufacturing cannot grow without a deep knowledge of the fundamentals of materials and consequently, the use of computer simulations is becoming ubiquitous. This article is intended to introduce the most recent advances in the computation benefit specific to the area of solid freeform fabrication as these systems are traversing through the journey of digitalisation and Industry-4.0. Specifically, this article demonstrates that the application of the latest materials modelling approaches, based on techniques such as molecular dynamics, are enabling breakthroughs in applied precision manufacturing techniques.
