||This symposium broadly addresses the corrosion of additively manufactured (AM) metals including process-structure-performance relationships, processing and post-processing strategies to increase corrosion resistance, materials selection and application in corrosive environments. Additive manufacturing processes often result in microstructures and material surfaces that diverge considerably from conventional thermo-mechanically processed materials. Presentations that address how these varied microstructures and surfaces impact corrosion performance relative to conventional counterparts are sought. Processing and post-processing strategies that enhance the corrosion performance of microstructure and surface finish is an area of interest. Practical use of AM metals in engineering applications along with materials selection and qualification of AM metals as they relate to corrosion are additional areas of focus.
