Every 2 years


This course is designed to cover a series of important scientific aspects related to the field of additive manufacturing of metals and alloys and to provide an in-depth review of corresponding fundamentals. It features 9 modules consisting of presentations given by lecturers and the participants.



Additive manufactuing, metals, atomistic modelling, rapid solidification, alloys for additive manufacturing, in situ experiments,

Laser/e-beam - material interactions

Atomistic modelling of solidification in out-of-equilibrium conditions

Fundamentals of rapid solidification

Optimization of alloys for AM

In situ experiments with Xrays and neutrons at large facilities

Post-treatments, microstructure evolutions and properties

EBM processing and contrast with the SLM approach

Important aspects to be considered in industrial applications


The course is organised as a 5 day retreat to allow for extensive informal interactions.
