Fatigue Characteristics of Additively Manufactured Aerospace Materials

Abstract: This presentation documents the fatigue properties of three additive manufactured (AM) metallic systems (Ti-6-4, GRC op-84, and Alloy 718) used by NASA in various aerospace applications. These alloys were produced using the powder bed method, with the titanium alloy using an electron beam melting (EBM) and the other two alloys using selective laser melting systems (SLM). For each material a large matrix of fatigue tests were conducted and the fatigue characteristics compared to their conventi…
