HIGH CYCLE FATIGUE OF AM PRODUCED HOT WORK TOOL STEEL
Dimitrios NikasGrand Ballroom E
Additive manufacturing as a mean to produce near net shape components of metal alloys has evolved in many commercial applications during the last decade. Still, development of additive processes and alloy grades requires new research knowledge. In the present study focus is on advanced high strength martensitic steels and fatigue properties. They are used in demanding tooling and high performance applications where high strength and toughness, both static and dynamic, are required. Fatigue strength and failure defect distributions of one AISI H13 AM grade and one corresponding ingot cast and forged grade have been characterized and modelled.
