Mitigating microscale residual stresses in 3D-printed stainless steel

Wen Chen

Wen Chen (MIE) is PI on a three-year, $345,470 NSF grant to investigate microscale residual stresses in additively manufactured stainless steel. Additive manufacturing, also called 3D printing, could be a key technology for the manufacture of stainless-steel engineering components in automotive, aerospace, defense, biomedical, and other industries if certain “disruptive” aspects can be alleviated.
