ASTM/NIST Workshop on Mechanical Behavior of Additive Manufactured Components

A Workshop on Mechanical Behavior of Additive Manufactured Components will be held Wednesday, May 4, 2016 and Thursday, May 5, 2016. Sponsored by ASTM Committee E08 on Fatigue and Fracture in conjunction with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the workshop will be held at the Grand Hyatt San Antonio in San Antonio, TX, in conjunction with the ASTM May standards development meetings.


While the field of additive manufacturing has many workshops and conferences, the fatigue and fracture behavior of components fabricated using AM has received little attention. This workshop will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas regarding the AM metal fatigue and fracture behavior in an effort to help focus future research and standardization efforts and best serve the AM community.


  • Fatigue and fracture behavior of AM metal materials and components
  • Current needs, barriers, and possible solutions to achieve broader acceptance and use of AM metals in fatigue and fracture critical applications
  • Fatigue and fracture standards for AM
  • Nondestructive evaluation of AM materials and components
Who Should Attend:
This Workshop is designed for professionals in all aspects of the AM community interested in fatigue and fracture of AM metals: industrial (aerospace, medical, defense, etc), academic, government, regulatory, and funding agencies.
