This report investigates the current state-of-the-art methods for determining the properties of metal powders. This assessment evaluates both existing standards that provide guidance for powder property measurement methods, as well as technical publications describing methods that are not covered as completely by standards. This report is the second in a series of publications that will be used as the basis to develop standardized test methods that are appropriate for testing both the metal powders used in as well as the metal parts made via additive manufacturing.
