Summer School Metal Additive Manufacturing

2nd edition

Bertinoro - 30 June, 1-2-3 July 2024

The Metallurgy Summer School Metal Additive Manufacturing, organized by CoMET, is the 2nd edition of the event. The first one (2020), held in Trento, focused the attention on the additive manufacturing (AM) techniques and general features of metals prepared in this way. On the basis of that experience and suggestions of participants, the scope of this school is to provide a deeper insight into advantages and problems arising in different types of metallic alloys.
After an introductory section devoted to present the state of art of AM metal processing, powder production, experimental techniques for part characterization, and simulations for predicting the mechanical properties of metals produced by AM, the lectures will treat the specific cases of several alloys of industrial interest. They include tool steels, FeSi alloys for electric applications, Ni base superalloys, Al alloys for aerospace and other applications, Ti alloys for “racing” and “aerospace, CoCr alloys, biodegradable Zn alloys and duplex stainless steels for biomedical uses, and metamaterials for nuclear sector. Trends and opportunities of design for AM, lattice and cellular structures (Auxetic and TPMS) with porosity gradient will be also presented and discussed. In conclusion, the program will provide an overview on current scientific and technological challenges.
The school is mainly addressed to PhD students of engineering, materials science, physics and chemistry and technical personnel from industry but post-docs and master students are also welcomed. The lectures, given by experts in the field, aim to stimulate exchange of ideas and favour future research cooperation of participants.
