Maryland Hall 110

Seminar: Metal Additive Manufacturing:  A Review of Techniques and Mechanical Properties

This presentation summarizes an extensive review* on the techniques and mechanical properties of additively manufactured (AM) metals and includes the work of the author and collaborators.  The additive techniques reviewed include Powder Bed Fusion (e.g. EBM, SLM, DLMS) and Directed Energy Deposition (e.g. LENS, EBF3, Laser Hot Wire). Although only a limited number of metallic alloy systems are currently available for AM (e.g. TiAl, Stainless Steel, Inconel 625/718, Al-Si-10Mg), the bulk of the published mechanical properties have been generated on Ti-6Al-4V. Published values for mechanical properties obtained from tension/compression, fracture toughness, fatigue crack growth, and high cycle fatigue will be presented for as-deposited, heat treated, and/or HIPped conditions in order to capture the key observations. The effects of test orientation/build direction on properties, when available, will also be provided along with a discussion of the potential source(s) (e.g. microstructure, defects, etc.) of anisotropy. In addition to examining bulk samples, the use of miniature samples excised from, or printed along with actual parts will be introduced. Recommendations for additional work will also be provided.
