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

Project description

A non-destructive method of testing 3D-printed aircraft alloy parts

Ti-6Al-4V is a titanium alloy that is used in a wide range of applications where high strength, light weight and excellent corrosion resistance are essential, such as in the aerospace industry. Additive manufacturing promises to revolutionise Ti-6Al-4V alloy manufacturing, allowing the design of functional components with complex geometric shapes and reduced weight without sacrificing component strength and safety. Damage tolerance assessment methods for 3D-printed aircraft parts are critical for approving additive manufacturing in aircraft structural components and meeting functional and safety requirements. The main goal of the EU-funded 3TANIUM project is to develop non-destructive methods of securely detecting critical flaws and defects that additive manufacturing can introduce, and to understand their impact on the mechanical properties of Ti-6Al-4V parts.
