This workshop will address major concerns regarding the use of additive manufactured structural components that often require mechanical and physical property certification to certain design standards, which assure compliance to design integrity standards. NIAR (National Institute of Aviation Research) and SAMPE will offer a workshop regarding the development of appropriate test data methodology and data acquisition resources in demonstrating AM certification. NIAR facilities offer the best in combinations of "additive manufacturing, composite/polymer/metallic materials testing, and data acquisition technologies" for many of today's aerospace structural components and operational vehicles.

Why You Should Attend:

  • See the test laboratories responsible for establishing material databases for general usage in the aerospace industry in action testing additive manufactures specimens
  • Learn how to test your particular material and process to create allowable b-bases
  • Hear what the CMH-17 and FAA say about inclusion of additive material process in documentation
  • Get the scoop directly from material and equipment suppliers about material databases being developed
  • Learn about new materials, processes, and controls being developed to further additive manufacturing
