  • Ultrasonic additive manufacturing (UAM) is a process by which hybrid and near-netshaped products can be manufactured from thin metallic tapes. One of the main concerns of UAM is the development of anisotropic mechanical properties. In this work, the microstructures in the bond regions are characterized with optical and electron microscopy. Recrystallization and grain growth across the interface are proposed as a mechanism for the bond formation. The presence of voids or unbonded areas, which reduce the load-bearing cross section and create a stress intensity factor, is attributed to the transfer of the sonotrode texture to the new foil layer. Thismore » results in large peaks and valleys that are not filled in during processing. Tensile testing revealed the weld interface strength was 15% of the bulk foil. Shear tests of the weld interfaces showed almost 50% of the bulk shear strength of the material. Finally, optical microscopy of the fracture surfaces from the tensile tests revealed 34% of the interface area was unbonded.« less
  • Ultrasonic additive manufacturing (UAM) is a solid-state process, which uses ultrasonic vibrations at 20 kHz along with mechanized tape layering and intermittent milling operation, to build fully functional three-dimensional parts. In the literature, UAM builds made with low power (1.5 kW) exhibited poor tensile properties in Z-direction, i.e., normal to the interfaces. This reduction in properties is often attributed to the lack of bonding at faying interfaces. The generality of this conclusion is evaluated further in 6061 aluminum alloy builds made with very high power UAM (9 kW). Tensile deformation behavior along X and Z directions were evaluated with small-scalemore » in-situ mechanical testing equipped with high-resolution digital image correlation, as well as, multi-scale characterization of builds. Interestingly, even with complete metallurgical bonding across the interfaces without any discernable voids, poor Z-direction properties were observed. This reduction is correlated to coalescence of pre-existing shear bands at interfaces into micro voids, leading to strain localization and spontaneous failure on tensile loading.« less
  • Additive manufacturing methods are gaining increasing popularity for rapidly and efficiently manufacturing parts and components in the industrial context, as well as for domestic applications. However, except when used for prototyping or rapid visualization of components, industries are concerned with the load carrying capacity and strength achievable by additive manufactured parts. In this paper, the wire-arc additive manufacturing (AM) process based on gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) has been examined for the internal structure and constitution of components generated by the process. High-resolution 3D X-ray tomography is used to gain cut-views through wedge-shaped parts created using this GTAW additive manufacturingmore » process with titanium alloy materials. In this work, two different control conditions for the GTAW process are considered. The studies reveal clusters of porosities, located in periodic spatial intervals along the sample cross-section. Such internal defects can have a detrimental effect on the strength of the resulting AM components, as shown in destructive testing studies. Closer examination of this phenomenon shows that defect clusters are preferentially located at GTAW traversal path intervals. These results highlight the strong need for enhanced control of process parameters in ensuring components with minimal defects and higher strength.« less
