2021 William P. Slichter Award

AWARD CITATION

The group is recognized for conceiving, organizing, and conducting AM-Bench, the Additive Manufacturing Benchmark Test Series, which allows industry to validate software codes used to simulate and predict complex additive manufacturing processes.  Driven by a program of industry engagement, the team built complex metal and polymer parts using additive manufacturing under real-world conditions of relevance to multiple industries.  These parts, exquisitely characterized with innovative measurement methods, serve as benchmarks to validate models and simulations used to guide the manufacturing process.  This methodology established by the AM-Bench team is now widely used to understand and improve additive manufacturing in numerous applications.
