Design of alloys for binder jet 3D printing

Project Leader: Tesfaye Molla
Collaborators: Graham Schaffer, Tim Sercombe (University of Western Australia)
Primary Contact: Tesfaye Molla (tesfaye.molla@unimelb.edu.au)
Keywords: 3D printing; computational materials science; numerical modelling; porous media
Disciplines: Mechanical Engineering

The aim of this project is to design and develop a unique alloy system for Additive Manufacturing (AM) by 3D Binder Jet Printing (3DBJP) using an integrated computational materials engineering appraoches. The project outcomes will be alloy compositions and process conditions for powder materials that can be freely sintered without distortion to near full density a density.
