Additive manufacturing (AM) offers distinct advantages over conventional manufacturing processes, and can establish a new paradigm as a tool of advanced materials research and development while providing an optimized component manufacturing path. By integrated computational materials engineering (ICME) and a closed-loop experimental research facility that includes gas atomization as well as powder bed fusion (PBF), new and modified alloys of Al, Fe, Ni and Co are being investigated through alloy design, process modeling, feedstock development and PBF optimizations. Novel alloys with new/modified compositions and unique microstructure, designed specifically for, and to take advantage of AM technology are sought after, guided by mechanism-based computational composition and process optimization, combinatorial rapid property assessment and characterization from the visual to atomic scale. This integrated and closed-loop AM approach is being explored as a research tool to accelerate the discovery and delivery of alloys with the relevant science and readiness for applications.
