Integrity of WAAM components through intelligent printing

Joining and additive manufacturing

The main goal of this project is the development of both numerical tools and experimental screening capabilities for large-scale steel components made by Wire & Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM). Our main focus is the development of artificial intelligence based reverse models that link microstructural properties of the printed component to the welding process parameters. Additionally we perform experimental studies for assessing the structural integrity of WAAM printed components.
