Materials Park, OH – April 1, 2023 – Advanced Materials & Processes, which is an international magazine that covers leading-edge developments and trends in engineering materials, including metals and alloys, engineering polymers, advanced ceramics, and composites, published a journal article authored by Senvol’s Annie Wang and Zach Simkin and Pilgrim Consulting’s Dr. William E. Frazier. The paper, titled “Machine Learning: Progress Toward Additive Manufacturing Materials Property Allowables,” was the cover story.
The paper summarizes two recent programs led by Senvol – one for America Makes, and one for the U.S. Army – that centered on utilizing a machine learning-enabled approach for calculating material allowables. Results from the two research projects show machine learning to be a cost-effective and flexible way to accelerate the process of material property allowables development.
The paper states:
“Senvol recently completed two programs that focused on demonstrating an ML-enabled approach to support materials allowables development. The first project was an Army program [funded via the Advanced Manufacturing, Materials, and Processes (AMMP) consortium] focused on stainless steel 17-4PH. Project members included Senvol, Lockheed Martin Missiles & Fire Control, EWI, Pilgrim Consulting, and Battelle. The second program was an America Makes program focused on a flame retardant polymer, where the project members were Senvol, WSU-NIAR, Northrop Grumman, Stratasys Direct Manufacturing, and Pilgrim Consulting. Both projects completed a side by-side comparison that evaluated an ML-enabled approach to allowables development. Results showed that an ML-based approach can be more flexible, cost-effective, time-effective, and equivalent to the conventional (e.g., MMPDS in the case of metals, and CMH-17 in the case of polymers) approach to materials allowables calculation.”
Advanced Materials & Processes is the flagship publication from ASM International, the world’s largest and most established materials information society. ASM connects its members to a global network of peers and provides access to trusted materials information through reference content, data and research, education courses and international events.
