How can you follow powder ageing in Additive Manufacturing?

October 3, 2018
How can you follow powder ageing in Additive Manufacturing? Introduction In Additive Manufacturing (AM) processes, a three-dimensional object is created one superfine layer at a time. Therefore, the term Additive Manufacturing implies adding material to create the object.By contrast, if an object is created by classical means, it is often necessary to remove material through milling, machining, etc…However, despite AM is more economic than classical machining, in most case, only a...

Angle of Repose

October 3, 2018
Angle of Repose Principle When a powder is poured onto a surface, a heap is formed. It is well known that both the repose angle and the heap shape strongly depend on grain properties (Moisture content, morphology, and particle size distribution, among other parameters, …). In particular, a cohesive powder forms an irregular heap while a non-cohesive powder forms a regular conical heap. “The angle of repose or the critical angle of repose, of a granular material is the steepest angle...

Granular materials

April 6, 2018
GRANULAR STATE A granular medium is an assembly of many solid elements, which can interact for example in collisions. But also under the effect of electromagnetic or gravitational forces. Those elements, also known under the generic term grains, are generally arranged in a disordered way and often have differences in shape, size and surface condition. Granular media are found at all scales: fine compacted powders composing aspirin tablets, dunes of the desert, the ballast of the railways...
