The development of novel materials and structures is very significant in aerospace, automotive, mechanical, biomedical and electrical engineering. The use of computational model is very effective to develop novel materials and structures. On the other hand, additive manufacturing has enabled us to fabricate highly sophisticated small-scale features with certain precision, which in turn makes the design of novel materials and structures more demanding. The goal of this mini-symposium is to bring together researchers from different disciplines to discuss recent computational tools to design, optimise, characterise and fabricate materials and structure, which aims to link materials design and digital manufacturing into a single workflow. This is very important to advance the technology of digital twin in the fourth industrial revolution.
