Abstract A sample of 304L stainless steel manufactured by Laser Engineered Net Shaping (LENS) was characterized in 3D using TriBeam tomography. The crystallographic, structural, and chemical properties of the as-deposited microstructure have been studied in detail. 3D characterization reveals complex grain morphologies and large orientation gradients, in excess of 10∘, that are not easily interpreted from 2D cross-sections alone. Misorientations were calculated via a methodology that locates the initial location and orientation of grains that grow during the build process. For larger grains, misorientation increased along the direction of solidification. For grains with complex morphologies, K-means clustering in orientation space is demonstrated as a useful approach for determining the initial growth orientation. The gradients in misorientation directly tracked with gradients in chemistry predicted by a Scheil analysis. The accumulation of misorientation is linked to the solutal and thermal solidification path, offering potential design pathways for novel alloys more suited for additive manufacturing.

Abstract Directed energy deposition (DED) is often utilized to coat metallic part with complex geometries in a variety of anti-corrosion materials or high-temperature materials. Computer-controlled scanning patterns always affect the grain morphology in coating, which can further influence coating’s mechanical properties. In this study, a Kinetic Monte Carlo (KMC) Potts model is applied to predict the grain morphology under two different frequently-used laser scanning patterns: unidirectional an...

Abstract The impact of microstructure and processing defects of directed energy deposition (DED) 304L stainless steel on its corrosion behavior was investigated. Materials produced by DED with heat inputs of 0.45 and 0.03 kJ/mm were compared to wrought 304L. Lack of fusion pores in the DED material controlled breakdown potential (E b ) to the first order, reducing it by up to 400 mV versus the base material in 0.6 M NaCl. The hierarchal control of these and other microstructure features, nanosca...

Abstract Additive manufacturing (AM) processes produce unique microstructures compared with other manufacturing processes because of the large thermal gradient, high solidification rate and other local temperature variations caused by the repeated heating and melting. However, the effect of these thermal profiles on the microstructure is not thoroughly understood. In this work, a 3D cellular automaton method is coupled to a finite volume method to predict the grain structure of an alloy, e.g. In...

Abstract The effect of the as-built microstructure and defect distribution on the fatigue performance of a metastable austenitic stainless-steel fabricated by directed energy deposition was analyzed in two fatigue regimes. Strain localization, porosity, microstructural response, and deformation induced phase transformation were studied for samples parallel and perpendicular to the build direction using digital image correlation, optical surface imaging, scanning electron microscopy, x-ray diffra...

A microstructure analytics and 3D reconstruction software package, DREAM.3D, was integrated as a module into a cloud-based platform, BisQue. Parallelization of DREAM.3D module executions and the ability to parameterize pipeline variables over a range of values have led to insights about the grain segmentation misorientation tolerance in TriBeam-collected 3D EBSD datasets of additively manufactured materials with complex anisotropic microstructures. Furthermore, a comparison in grain size measure...

The single-loop electrochemical potentiokinetic reactivation (EPR) test was used to quantify the degree of sensitization for 316L stainless steel (SS) produced by laser-engineered net shaping (LENS®) additive manufacturing (AM). EPR tests were also used to monitor how the sensitivity of the as-deposited and heat-treated AM material compared to wrought 316L SS. A solution-annealing heat treatment that recrystallized the material was also applied to AM-316L SS. The EPR tests showed that as-deposit...

ABSTRACTA novel Ti/Al lightweight graded material was fabricated successfully using the direct laser deposition process, with the composition continuously changing from 100 vol.-% Ti6Al4V to 100 vol.-% AlSi10Mg. Microstructures and phase transformations were characterised, and the mechanical properties of the Ti/Al lightweight graded material were investigated. It was found that element concentrations followed a nearly linear relationship along the compositional gradient. The maximum hardness re...

Grain structure control is challenging for metal additive manufacturing (AM). Grain structure optimization requires the control of grain morphology with grain size refinement, which can improve the mechanical properties of additive manufactured components. This work summarizes methods to promote fine equiaxed grains in both the additive manufacturing process and subsequent heat treatment. Influences of temperature gradient, solidification velocity and alloy composition on grain morphology are di...

Abstract For additive manufacturing (AM) of metallic materials, the certification and qualification paradigm needs to evolve as there is currently no broadly accepted “ASTM- or DIN-type” additive manufacturing certification process or AM-produced material specifications. Accordingly, design, manufacture, and subsequent implementation and insertion of AM materials to meet engineering applications requires detailed quantification of the constitutive (strength and damage) properties of these evolvi...

Rapid solidification experiments on thin film aluminum samples reveal the presence of lattice orientation gradients within crystallizing grains. To study this phenomenon, a single-component phase-field crystal (PFC) model that captures the properties of solid, liquid, and vapor phases is proposed to model pure aluminium quantitatively. A coarse-grained amplitude representation of this model is used to simulate solidification in samples approaching micrometer scales. The simulations reproduce the...

Abstract null null 3D electron backscatter diffraction (3D-EBSD) is a method of obtaining 3-dimensional crystallographic data through serial sectioning. The recent advancement of using a Xe+ plasma focused ion beam for sectioning along with a complementary metal-oxide semiconductor based EBSD detector allows for an improvement in the trade-off between volume analyzed and spatial resolution over most other 3D characterization techniques. Recent publications from our team have focused on applying ...

Rapid solidification leads to unique microstructural features, where a less studied topic is the formation of various crystalline defects, including high dislocation densities, as well as gradients and splitting of the crystalline orientation. As these defects critically affect the material's mechanical properties and performance features, it is important to understand the defect formation mechanisms, and how they depend on the solidification conditions and alloying. To illuminate the formation ...
