Predictive Theoretical and Computational Approaches for Additive Manufacturing

On October 7-9, 2015, the U.S. National Committee on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (USNC/TAM) held a Workshop on Predictive Theoretical and Computational Approaches for Additive Manufacturing in Washington, DC.

The three-day workshop featured 24 presentations from speakers in academia, industry, and government labs. 50 experts attended the workshop in person, 200 joined through the webinar and over 1,800 viewers have already watched the video sessions.  We welcome you to visit the USNC/TAM site (http://sites.nationalacademies.org/pga/biso/IUTAM/) where you will be able to access the speakers’ session slides and videos. As a result of this workshop, Lyle Levine, Project Leader of Additive Manufacturing of Metals at NIST, has proposed a series of benchmark tests and an accompanying conference series. The project, which aims to start developing AM standards, requires input from experts across the board in industry, national labs, and academia.

If you are interested in joining the planning committee, which will define the scope and organization of this series, please contact Lyle Levine at Lyle.Levine@nist.gov.
