This special issue covers the vast domain of the advanced modeling and simulation of various materials, processes and structures governed by the laws of mechanics. The emphasis is on advanced and innovative modeling approaches and numerical strategies. The main objective is to describe the actual physics of large mechanical systems with complicated geometries as accurately as possible using complex, highly nonlinear and coupled Multiphysics and multiscale models, and then to carry out simulations with these complex models as rapidly as possible. In other words, this research revolves around efficient numerical modeling along with model verification and validation. Therefore, the corresponding papers deal with advanced modeling and simulation, efficient optimization, inverse analysis, data-driven computation, and simulation-based control. These challenging issues require multidisciplinary efforts – particularly in modeling, numerical analysis and computer science – which are treated in this special issue.

The focus of this special issue is on cutting-edge sustainable technology in Modeling and Simulation of various advanced manufacturing processes. The special issue also covers artificial intelligence (AI), augmented/virtual/mixed reality (AR/VR/MR), cloud computing, internet-of-things (IOT), virtual simulation, reverse engineering, additive manufacturing, product manufacturing, numerical simulation, and computational modelling, all of which aid engineers in navigating the unique design (multifunctional, multi-material, multi-physics, and/or multiscale parts) of development and manufacturing of complex products.
