Additive friction stir deposition: a deformation processing route to metal additive manufacturing‍‍‍

Hang Z. Yu & Rajiv S. Mishra

Volume 9, Issue 2 | Pages: 71-83

Published online: 24 Nov 2020


This paper delineates additive friction stir deposition, which offers a solid-state deformation processing route to metal additive manufacturing and renders fully-dense material with fine, equiaxed microstructures in the as-printed state.

Introducing transformation twins in titanium alloys: an evolution of α-variants during additive manufacturing

H. Wang, Q. Chao, L. Yang, M. Cabral, Z. Z. Song, B. Y. Wang, S. Primig, W. Xu, Z. B. Chen, S. P. Ringer & X. Z. Liao

Volume 9, Issue 3 | Pages: 119-126

Published online: 18 Dec 2020


A new twinning mechanism, transformation twinning, was discovered in a Ti–6Al–4V alloy fabricated by selective laser melting. The resulting high density of transformation twins impact the global mechanical properties significantly.
