Keynote

Possibilities and Limitations of Relevant NDE measurements in support of Quality Assured Additive Manufacturing

Peter Collins | Iowa State University

9:00 am | Tuesday, 27 Apr 2021

Approximately 25 years ago, the first commercial metal-based additive manufacturing (AM) systems were finding their way into various research institutions. After a critical first decade when the initial correlations between processing and microstructure were established, AM began to become ‘main-stream’ at various companies. Concurrently, it became obvious that far greater understanding was needed to understand the interrelationships between the physics associated with melting, solidification, defect formation, residual stress, compositional fluctuations, and all aspects of materials state including grain size/morphology/orientation, phase distributions, and defects/damage. There are multiple technical challenges from the materials science perspective, including the need to make measurements with improved spatial (Euclidean, Eulerian) and temporal resolutions. Appropriately, NDE methods are being considered as part of a potential framework to assure the quality of additively manufactured metallic structures. This talk presents the possibilities and limitations of candidate methods for both in-line process monitoring and post-deposition quality assurance. These possibilities and limitations are informed by the relevant length and time scale of the materials state, the additive manufacturing processes, and the NDE methods. Consideration is given to both classical damage/defects (porosity, cracking, lack of fusion), semi-classical defects (residual stress) and materials state attributes that, while being fully dense, are nonetheless weak-links.

About the Speaker

P. C. Collins is a Professor and Entrepreneurial Fellow within the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Iowa State University and an affiliated faculty in Aerospace Engineering. He received his PhD from The Ohio State University in Materials Science and Engineering. Prior to starting in his first university role, he set up a not-for-profit advanced manufacturing facility embedded in an Army Arsenal. Dr. Collins is actively involved in two NSF Industry/University Cooperative Research Centers, serving as the co-director for the Center for Advanced Non-Ferrous Structural Alloys, and as past director for the Center for Nondestructive Evaluation. His primary research interests involve: the physical metallurgy of advanced non-ferrous materials; advanced characterization techniques including various electron microscopies and emergent spectroscopic methods; quantification of defects and crystal orientation across length scales; combinatorial materials science; advanced materials processing with special interest in additive manufacturing; and the mechanical behavior of non-ferrous materials, including establishing composition-microstructure-property relationships. He has conducted basic and applied research on metal-based additive manufacturing for over 20 years, and most recently has worked to demonstrate new methods to fully characterize the materials state of additively manufactured metallic systems. He has received multiple awards for teaching and his research, and has been actively involved in a variety of professional societies, planning of conferences and symposia, various government panels and working groups, and has >50 publications, >50 invited talks, and multiple US patents.
