||Additive Manufacturing (AM) is gaining significant attention due to its ability to process materials with added functionalities and complex shapes, which otherwise is not possible with conventional manufacturing technologies. However, these AM processes have unique processing conditions that lead to non-equilibrium microstructure and hence unique properties.
This symposium is devoted to the processing of Al-based alloys by AM. Al and its alloys have several industrial applications right from aeronautical, automobile, constructoin sectors, etc. Hence, there is no surprise that Al-based alloys were extensively studied by AM especially AlSi10Mg and Al12Si. Since, new Al-based alloys were explored in the recent days and interesting properties were realized, the present symposium will focus on (but not limited to) the alloy development, microstructural-property correlation, structural integrity aspects, etc.
