Additive Manufacturing of Ultrahigh Temperature Refractory Metal Alloys

Project: Research project

Project Details


The focus of this effort, led by researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, will be to produce turbine blades using a combination of reactive synthesis and additive manufacturing. Within this effort, a critical issue will be understanding the equilibrium and non-equilibrium phases and how these evolve as a function of both additive manufacturing processing conditions as well as post processing. A full range of characterization techniques will be used at Northwestern University, including electron microscopy at all levels as well as atom probe methods. In addition to this work, density functional theory calculations will be performed as appropriate to better understand the thermodynamics of the system.
