November 15, 2017 - November 16, 2017
Hyatt Regency Atlanta
The Symposium on Fatigue and Fracture of Additive Manufactured Materials and Components will be held Wednesday afternoon and all day Thursday, November 15-16, 2017. Sponsored by ASTM Committee E08 on Fatigue and Fracture and F42 on Additive Manufacturing Technologies, the symposium will be held at the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta, GA, in conjunction with the November standards development meetings of Committee E08.
Topics discussed at a recent workshop (ASTM/NIST Workshop on Mechanical Behavior of Additive Manufactured Components) indicate a strong motivation to employ additive manufacturing (AM) for fabricating various critical components. To ensure their structural integrity, there is a need for establishing process-structure-property-performance relationships; specifically, as they pertain to fatigue and fracture behavior of additively-manufactured components and structures. This event will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas regarding the mechanical behavior of components fabricated using AM with a focus on fatigue behavior and the lack of industry standards and design allowables. This event is designed for professionals within the AM community including industrial (aerospace, medical, defense), academic, government and regulatory.
