Predicting deformation and stress as a function of additive manufacturing process parameters for Europa drill

Active Technology Project

Project Introduction

Predicting deformation and stress as a function of additive manufacturing process parameters for Europa drill
We will combine part-level FEM model of residual stresses with phase-field transformation model to predict deformation and cracking due to thermal stresses from the AM building process. Next steps include fully-coupled, part-level thermo-mechanical simulation of the additive manufacturing process for assessing feasibility of employing an additive part on mission, and development of journal article and infusion into Glassgen’s computational materials program, NESC and OSMA NDWG, STMD Rapid Analysis and Manufacturing Propulsion Technology (RAMPT), AMSII.
