AT THE CROSSROADS OF ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING, ANALYTICS AND ADVANCED MATERIALS
Prof. Tresa M. Pollock (UC Santa Barbara)
Additive manufacturing promises new pathways for integration of advanced alloys with complex structural component design. Achieving desired properties mandates control of structure and an improved understanding of the processes that occur at the individual melt pool scale and their superposition as melting occurs on a layer- by-layer basis. A new technique, TriBeam tomography, has been employed to acquire chemical, structural and misorientation information on structural alloys printed by electron beam and laser powder based processes. The data challenges with additive manufacturing and the corresponding 3D quantification of structure will be addressed. The benefits of multimodal data for characterization of submicron features, as well as implications for alloy design and new alloys for printed structures are discussed.
