Effect of Defects on Fatigue Tests of As-Build Ti-6Al-4V Parts Fabricated by Selective Laser Melting
(University of Texas at Austin, 2012-08-16)
Defects can be found in parts made using Selective Laser Melting (SLM) due to balling effects and other types of localized irregularities. This study investigates how defects affect the fatigue performance of Ti-6Al-4V ...
Controlling Phase Composition in Selective Laser Melted Stainless Steels
(University of Texas at Austin, 2012-08-22)
Commercially important stainless steels can be austenitic or martensitic and this phase composition fundamentally controls the mechanical properties of the material. With selective laser melting (SLM), 17-4 stainless ...
A Review of Thermal Analysis Methods in Laser Sintering and Selective Laser Melting
(University of Texas at Austin, 2012)
Thermal analysis of laser processes can be used to predict thermal stresses and microstructures during processing and in a completed part. Thermal analysis is also the basis for feedback control of laser processing ...
