CorroZoom Webinar: Corrosion of Additive Manufactured Materials

February 24 @ 14:00 - 15:00 UTC+1

Gerald Frankel, Ohio State University Professor and Journal of The Electrochemical Society Corrosion Science and Technology Technical Editor, is hosting CorroZoom, a webinar series focusing on corrosion science. The next webinar, “Corrosion of Additive Manufactured Materials” presented by Nick Birbilis, will take place on February 24, 2021, at 08:00 (EST).

Registration (required, but free for all): https://osu.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_MZeDZ1_pQvubCWwE6cxXFA

After registering, you will receive a confirmation e-mail containing information about joining the webinar.


Additive manufacturing (AM), often termed 3D printing, has recently emerged as a mainstream means of producing metallic components from a variety of metallic alloys. The numerous benefits of AM include net shape manufacturing, efficient use of material, suitability to low volume production runs, and the ability to explore alloy compositions not previously accessible to conventional casting. The process of AM, which is nominally performed using laser (or electron) based local melting, has a definitive role in the resultant alloy microstructure. Herein, the corrosion of alloys prepared by AM are described and discussed – relating the corrosion performance to the microstructural features influenced by AM processing. Such features include unique porosity, grain structures, dislocation networks, residual stress, solute segregation, and surface roughness. Correlations between reported results and deficiencies in present understanding are highlighted. A number of examples are given, covering AM prepared steels, aluminium alloys and (even) magnesium alloys.
