Additive Manufacturing; Developing novel processes and procedures using additive manufacturing (AM) to realize new uses for the technology in the manufacturing environment.
Energy Manufacturing; Using AM processes to create more energy efficient components for industry or components used in energy applications such as engines, fuel cells, etc.
Advanced Material Characterization – Use of Scanning Electron Microscopy, Electron Back-Scatter Diffraction, Transmission Electron Microscopy, and X-Ray Diffraction to determine microstructure of manufactured components and relate to properties through thermo-mechanical testing.
Advanced Manufacturing Techniques; Friction Stir Welding, Very High Power Ultrasonic Additive Manufacturing, Selective Laser Melting, 3D Printing.
Thermal Analysis; Use of sensors, embedded or external, to map thermal signatures of manufactured components (AM, welding, or cladding) to directly correlate to properties and microstructure.
