Demonstration of the New Additive Manufacturing Module

The Additive Manufacturing Module is an Add-on Module in Thermo-Calc that is primarily designed for modeling the powder bed fusion process in Additive Manufacturing.

Special focus has been given to have a unified treatment of alloy dependent material properties and process parameters when solving the multiphysics problem of a moving heat source that melts and solidifies metal powder. The multiphysics simulation involves thermal conduction, fluid flow, evaporation-, radiation- and convective- heat loss.

This webinar will give an overview of the module, followed by a live demonstration of how to: generate the materials data needed for the simulation, setup different calculation types, analyze results, couple results to other modules, and finally a preview of the current development.

Topics that will be discussed:

  • Generation of Materials Data
  • Overview of the Module
  • Demonstration of different calculation types:
    • Steady State (SS)
      • Transient with Heat Source from SS
        • Transient
        • Visualization and analysis of results
        • Comparison with experimental results
        • Coupling with Diffusion- and/or Precipitation Module
        • Preview of 2024a development

Date and Time: 26 September 2023 | 2:00 – 3:00 PM CEST

Amer Malik, Ph.D. 

Amer Malik started working at Thermo-Calc Software in 2021 and since then he has been involved in the development of the Additive Manufacturing Module in Thermo-Calc. He received his PhD degree in 2013 from the Royal Institute of Technology KTH, Sweden, specializing in phase-field modeling of martensitic transformation. After spending two years as a post-doc in the Dept. of Materials Science and Engineering at KTH, Dr. Amer continued his research with finite-element based microstructural modeling of diffusional transformations in steels. The primary goal of his research is to leverage numerical and computational methods in order to better understand and improve different industrial processes in materials technology.
