Czech Technical University in Prague

The goal is to develop, identify, validate and generalize mathematical models of the effect of the 3D printing parameters of PBF – LB method and post-treatment parameters on selected characteristics of surface integrity for nickel-based superalloys.

First, the mathematical models will be investigated for the influence of layer height, the hatch distance and energy density on surface roughness parameters, surface layer hardening and residual stresses after 3D printing of selected superalloy or high entropy alloy. Next, the models of residual stress relaxation, dislocation density and surface layer hardening of 3D printed structures after various post-treatment methods when exposed to elevated temperatures will be developed and validated for the same material.
