2018 WFNDEC Short Course

NDE for Additive Manufacturing

Additive manufacturing is a rapidly maturing process for the production of complex metallic, ceramic, polymeric, and composite components. The processed used are numerous, and with the complex geometries involved this can make quality control and standardization of the process used and inspection challenging. This short course will cover issues and challenges faced by the NDE community with the increasing adoption of additively manufactured materials and parts including in-process measurements at the interfaces between manufacturing engineering, NDE and materials science.
