Natural materials featuring hierarchical microstructures often show remarkable mechanical properties such as compressive strength and higher impact resistance. Functionally graded materials (FGMs) have been fabricated using direct energy deposition (DED)-based additive manufacturing (AM) technique to mimic natural structures such as bone and nacre. To this end, we represent a layered metallic structure including commercially pure Titanium (CPTi) and Nickel (Ni) which is not achievable by conventional manufacturing approaches. Mechanical characterizations, microstructure, Vickers hardness (HV), and compression tests have been performed to understand the influence of reactive interphase on the bulk material’s performance.
