Summary of A 06
The objective of this project is to explore and evaluate the factors influencing the manufacturing of safe and durable structural steel elements by LPBF. Thereby, the LPBF process, the post treatment and the geometrical aspects in terms of microstructure and mechanical properties will be investigated and correlations determined. In this first funding period it is focused on analysing small scale specimens as well as on complex facade elements with multiaxial stress states. Based on the results, a first methodology for a qualified AM design of safe and durable structural steel elements will be derived.
