About the Project
This PhD project aims to study possible microstructure control mechanisms that can be applied to AM processes, in order to step towards the future inline process control capabilities. Potential for intensified dendrite fragmentation and other nucleation mechanisms, which can act as control measures to reduce coarse grain structures and textures are aimed to examine. In particularly, the ways that can control the melt pool flow as tool to increased nucleation/fragmentation potential with ways to reduce effective thermal gradients at the melt pools will be focused. Experimental data from multiscale ex situ post metallographic examinations and in situ synchrotron experiments will be used for model guiding and validation. In addition, a supportive computational framework is expected to develop to interpret and integrate multiple experimental data into comprehensive scientific and engineering information.
Self funded students are also welcome to apply.
