Prof. Dr. Ferdinando Auricchio - ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING PROCESSES: From Materials to Applications, From Micro- to Macro-Simulations

Department of Civil Engineering and Architecture
University of Pavia, Italy


Additive Manufacturing (AM) is taking off in many industrial processes, since it allows geometries and flexibility unthinkable not too long ago. However, AM is a very complex process, involving complex phenomena (e.g., heat conduction, phase change, surface change and residual stress rising), requiring dedicated design and simulation tools.

The presentation will give an overview of different materials currently adopted in AM, of possible applications where AM is successfully exploited (both in industrial and research environments), addressing also  design and simulation aspects, both at the microscopic scale (involving powder melting/solidification, melt pool fluid motion, geometry surface change) and at the macroscopic scale, performed using a commercial code.
