Call for Abstract: ASME IMECE 2017, Tampa Florida Nov 3-9: Track 2-2/12-15 - Congress-Wide Symposium on Additive Manufacturing: Failure of Additively Manufactured Materials
Dr. Eliot Fang (Sandia), Dr. Yuris Dzenis (UNL), Dr. Alaa Elwany (TAMU), Dr. Rob Taylor (UTA) and I are organizing the Congress-Wide Symposium on Additive Manufacturing: Failure of Additively Manufactured Materials.
This minisymposium is co-sponsered by AMD and Track 2-2 and Track 12-15
Please submit abstract by March 6 2017
Additive manufacturing or commonly known as 3D printing is a manufacturing technique that builds 3D objects by adding materials layer-by-layer. Stereolithography (SLA), Fused deposition modelling (FDM), Multi-Jet Modeling (MJM), Powder based Method such as 3DP, Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) and Selective Laser Melting (SLM) are commonly used techniques to build 3D structures out of metal, polymer, ceramics, biomaterials and many other form of materials. As we are advancing towards building 3D printed structures for large-scale biomedical, aerospace, automobile, electronics and many other industrial applications, we still have limited understanding about the process-structure-property relations of 3D printed materials and structures. This mini-symposium is intended to solicit abstracts that will showcase recent research advances in the areas including but not limited to damage, failure and fracture analysis and experimental/computational methods of 3D printed structure, mechanics of 3D printed materials and structures etc. Studies that include effects of processing parameters, geometry/process-induced defects and other process-induced issues that lead to unexpected failure are also welcome.
