Developing FGMs via Directed Energy Deposition

February 17, 2022

Functionally Graded Materials (FGMs) are comprised of a unique mixture of materials blended into specialized superalloys through AM DED. EWI has recently completed R&D to create a set of these materials for the Department of Energy and is working to develop standard methods for modeling and validating FGMs.
