Materials / Microstructure / Weldability
The projects that fall under this thrust area have an emphasis on materials / microstructure / weldability.
Our Efforts in Materials / Microstructure / Weldability
Goal is to develop a better understanding of the fundamentals associated with failure mechanisms. Create new and revolutionary ways to quantify the materials weldability/printability and seek standardization. Study the interconnected effects of microstructure, thermo-mechanical history and composition on weldability/printability. Explore real-time NDT techniques to monitor joints and printed components. Better understanding of long term predictability of joints and printed materials.
