Research Description

Ashraf is working on characterizing and reducing residual stresses in EBM additive manufacturing. The goal is to optimize the scanning and melting patterns to minimize thermal gradient, and therefore residual stresses. Minimizing residual stresses in additive manufacturing help improving the quality and mechanical properties of final products. This work will be done through finite element simulation and then a lab experiment.
