Abstract (technical / expert description):

Project B2 explores selective electron beam melting, which belongs to the additive manufacturing technologies, for the processing of single-crystalline superalloys. Especially the potential of the inherent high cooling rates is investigated. These lead to an ultra-fine and directional solidified microstructure. The main challenge of this project is to develop innovative processing strategies based on a sound theoretical process understanding in order to produce crack-free and preferably single crystalline samples, also with higher geometric complexity.
