Cross-Sectional Melt Pool Geometry of Laser Scanned Tracks and Pads on Nickel Alloy 718 for the 2022 Additive Manufacturing Benchmark Challenges

May 7, 2024
Jordan Weaver, David Deisenroth, Sergey Mekhontsev, Brandon Lane, Lyle E. Levine, Ho Yeung
AM Bench is a NIST-led organization that provides a continuing series of additive manufacturing (AM) benchmark measurements, challenge problems, and conferences with the primary goal of enabling modelers to test their simulations against rigorous, highly

Design and Evaluation of Large Aperture Gallium Fixed Point Blackbody

October 12, 2021
V B. Khromchenko, Sergey Mekhontsev, Leonard Hanssen
To complement existing water bath blackbodies which are now serving as NIST primary standard sources in the temperature range from 15 C to 75 C, a gallium fixed point blackbody has been recently built. The main objectives of the project included creating

This paper describes advances in measuring the characteristic spatial distribution of surface temperature and emissivity during laser-metal interaction under conditions relevant for laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) additive manufacturing processes. Detailed

Transient Laser Energy Absorption, Co-axial Melt Pool Monitoring, and Relationship to Melt Pool Morphology

August 16, 2020
Brandon M. Lane, Ivan Zhirnov, Sergey Mekhontsev, Steven E. Grantham, Richard E. Ricker, Santosh Rauniyar, Kevin Chou
Many recent and ongoing studies into the complex melt pool physics during laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) metal additive manufacturing (AM) process measure various aspects of energy transport surrounding the laser-induced melt pool, with focus on laser

Measurements of Melt Pool Geometry and Cooling Rates of Individual Laser Traces on IN625 Bare Plates

February 5, 2020
Brandon M. Lane, Jarred C. Heigel, Richard E. Ricker, Ivan Zhirnov, Vladimir Khromchenko, Jordan S. Weaver, Thien Q. Phan, Mark R. Stoudt, Sergey Mekhontsev, Lyle E. Levine
The complex physical nature of the laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) process warrants use of multiphysics computational simulations to predict or design optimal operating parameters or resultant part qualities such as microstructure or defect concentration

Influence of optical system operation on stability of single tracks in selective laser melting

August 20, 2019
Ivan Zhirnov, Igor Yadroitsev, Brandon Lane, Sergey Mekhontsev, Steven Grantham, Ina Yadroitsava
Additive manufacturing (AM) technologies are increasingly being studied and introduced into the modern industry, but for wide applications there exists some "lack of confidence" about the quality of the parts produced by AM. This distrust has an objective
