Symposium SF01-Additive Manufacturing—From Material Design to Emerging Applications

The recent advances and successes in additive manufacturing (AM) have propelled the field into a new era of design and manufacturing possibilities. AM offers a transformative approach that enables the creation of complex architectures with unprecedented precision and efficiency. This technology has revolutionized various industries, such as aerospace, automotive, healthcare, defense, and consumer products. In addition to the advancements in AM processes and material innovation, the integration of data-driven material design and process modeling with AM techniques paves the way for accelerated material development, improved process control, and enhanced material performance. This multidisciplinary approach fosters innovation, reduces development cycles, and promotes the adoption of AM across various industries.

Building upon the prior Fall 2021 symposium on this topic, this symposium provides a forum to present research progress based on experimental and/or computational approaches. We invite researchers, practitioners and industry professionals to submit their original and unpublished contributions.

Topics will include:

  • Novel materials development by/for AM

  • AM technology and process development (e.g., powder bed fusion, projection stereolithography, direct ink writing, drop-on-demand ink jetting, cold spray, directed energy deposition, binder jetting)

  • AM process control (e.g., defect mitigation)

  • Design and optimization: Design for AM, topology optimization, architected materials, design automation

  • Standards, metrology, and quality control: Standardization efforts, metrology techniques, real-time monitoring, inspection, material characterization, quality assurance

  • Multi-physics computational modeling, data analytics, and machine learning for AM

  • Applications and case studies: AM in aerospace, automotive, healthcare, tooling, and other industries. Case studies demonstrating the practical implementation and success stories are particularly encouraged
