Evaluation of NDT Techniques for Assessment of Critical Process and Manufacturing Related Flaws and Defects for a Ti-alloy


One of the major challenges to be solved before additive manufacturing (AM) can be fully utilized in aerospace applications is understanding the effect of process related critical flaws and defects on material and mechanical properties in AM parts. Therefore, evaluation of reliable Non-Destructive Testing and Analysis (NDT/NDA) techniques for precisely assessing eventual defects and their criticality in AM parts needs to be performed. The activities to be performed are test design, manufacturing, testing, characterization, modelling, and qualification of AM-parts with suitable NDT techniques. Please refer to the full topic descriptions document published in this call.
