Time: 5PM BST (UK). 9AM PDT (San Fransisco). 12AM PDT (Boston)
The aim of this course is to establish 10 basic rules for metal 3D printing, which address a number of critical aspects for metal 3D printing, which are: the processability of a material, the impact of platform, post-processing, approaches for process optimisation, inspection techniques, and the feedstock. The course also discusses the potential defects that occur due to metal 3D printing, suggesting approaches for mitigating them through process optimisation and post-processing.
By the end of this course, the attendee will be able to:
1. Identify whether a material is processable by AM or not.
2. Highlight the metallurgical issues with metal AM.
3. Understand the approaches for process optimisation for AM.
4. Assess the impact of AM on performance (mechanical properties).
5. Recognise the defects associated with AM, and how to mitigate them.
6. Highlight the benefits of AM for non-conventional applications.
Professor Moataz Attallah holds a chair in advanced materials processing. He received his PhD in metallurgy and materials science from the University of Birmingham (2007), BSc (highest honours) and MSc degrees from the American University in Cairo (AUC) Egypt, in mechanical engineering, and materials/manufacturing engineering respectively.
