Harnessing solid-state thermal cycling to Guide microstructure evolution of Additively Manufactured Metallic Alloys

Project description

Controlling the 3D printing process to print optimised alloy parts

Additive manufacturing (AM), or 3D-printing, holds tremendous potential to revolutionise the alloy manufacturing sector. However, the main roadblock preventing its widespread adoption is the inability to design alloy parts with microstructures exhibiting desired properties and performance. Designing such parts requires thoroughly understanding and controlling the micro-mechanisms that determine the final part microstructure. In the EU-funded project GAMMA, the aim is to understand the crucial and yet poorly studied role of micro-mechanisms driven by solid-state thermal cycling during AM on the formation of the final microstructure. The project will also use this knowledge to generate 3D-printed parts with desired performance. To achieve these goals, novel experimental devices and computational models will be developed and used in a synergistic manner.
