The ASTM has issued a call for papers for its ASTM international symposium on the structural integrity of additive manufactured (AM) materials and parts, taking place from 8-10 October 2019 in Washington DC, USA.

This symposium will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas regarding the structural integrity of materials and components fabricated using AM with a focus on the lack of industry standards, design principles, as well as qualification and certification criteria, the ASTM said.

Topics for this symposium include, but are not limited to:

  • Feedstock and materials related effects
  • Effect of influencing factors
  • Process optimization to improve performance
  • Microstructure-property predictive models
  • Multiscale modeling of the mechanical behavior
  • Fatigue, fracture, tensile, wear, corrosion and creep of fabricated materials.

 To participate in the symposium, authors must submit a 250-300 word preliminary abstract no later than 15 May on the symposium webpage.
