Digital Image Correlation Enables Accurate Residual Stress Measurement in 3D Printed Parts

Digital Image Correlation Enables Accurate Residual Stress Measurement in 3D Printed Parts

Researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) have developed a novel accurate method for measuring residual stress in 3-D printed metal parts. Powder-bed fusion additive manufacturing (AM) is a type of 3D printing process that uses a high-energy laser beam for fusing metal powder particles. In this method the metal parts are produced using a layer-by-layer method. [More]
