Webinar: Aerospace Parts Advanced Manufacturing, Drexel University

February 28, 2019

10:00 p.m. - 11:00 a.m. ET


Please join us for a webinar presentation entitled “Aerospace Parts Advanced Manufacturing” by the team led by Associate Professor Antonios Kontsos and Assistant Professor Ahmad Najafi, both from the Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics department at Drexel University. This project is supported by a 2018 DCED Manufacturing PA Innovation Program Award. 

The objective of this proposal is to investigate the Technology Readiness Level (TRL) of advanced manufacturing methods (AM) in relation to fabricating aerospace parts.  To achieve this goal, Drexel University and Boeing Philadelphia have partnered to use actual metallic parts to explore an Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) framework capable of delivering parts made out of AM methods with reduced mass/weight.  The proposed approach combines engineering design, testing, characterization, simulation and optimization so that not only a TRL assessment of existing AM capabilities is achieved but a roadmap on how advances in material, manufacturing, testing and modeling could contribute to the continuous improvement of the quality of aerospace parts made by AM.
