COMPREHENSIVE MODELING OF PROCESS-MOLTEN POOL CONDITION-PROPERTY CORRELATIONS FOR WIRE-FEED LASER ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING
Wire-feed laser additive manufacturing (WLAM) is gaining wide interest due to its high level of automation, high deposition rates, and good quality of printed parts. The complexity of modeling the directed energy deposition (DED) process, high characterization and printing cost, and the destructive testing of the final build part for quality testing motivates the need for developing in situ quality assurance and control techniques. In-process monitoring and feedback controls that would reduce the uncertainty in the quality of the fabricated parts are in the early stages of development. Machine ...
