AFRL Additive Manufacturing Modeling Challenge Series

Four Challenges to Predict the Internal Structure and Resultant Performance of Metallic Components Produced by AM

By challenging the brightest minds from industry and academia, the AFRL AM Modeling Challenge Series will be influential in the development of solutions focused on validating/improving the accuracy of model predictions for metal AM.  The goal of the AFRL AM Challenge Series is to make high-pedigree calibration data sets available to modelers to use in the calibration of the developed models as it directly relates to predicting the internal structure and resultant performance of AM metallic components. $150K to be divided up among awardees.

Submission Deadline: January 31, 2020
