Additive Manufacturing Materials and Processes Workshop

A Short Course Held in Conjunction with the Materials Science & Technology 2019 Technical Meeting and Exhibition (MS&T19)

Sunday, September 29, 2019
1:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Sponsored by:
TMS Materials Processing & Manufacturing Division; TMS Structural Materials Division; TMS Additive Manufacturing Committee; TMS Powder Materials Committee

Course Description

Additive manufacturing (AM) has become popular in the last few years, although seminal developments took place 25 to 30 years ago. The purpose of this workshop is to familiarize participants with current AM processes; current AM practice for metals, polymers, and ceramics; modeling of AM processes, microstructural evolution, and service properties; and current challenges and research opportunities.

This workshop is designed for people in the materials community already familiar with AM processes who want to learn more. Academics and researchers will also benefit from discussions about current challenges to the full adoption of AM.
