Abstract [en]

Alloy 718 specimens manufactured via electron beam-powder bed fusion (EB-PBF) were subjected to post-processing techniques, such as thermal post-treatment and surface finishing. Hot isostatic pressing followed by solution-aging heat treatment (HIP-HT) was used as the thermal post-treatment. Surface finishing techniques, such as turning (TU), shot peening (SP), chemically accelerated vibratory finishing (CAVF), and electro-polishing (EP), were applied on the as-built and HIP-HT specimens. The surface texture of all the specimens was characterized, with the HIP-HT specimen having the highest area arithmetical mean height (Sa) value of 52 ± 1.8 µm and the TU specimen having the lowest at 1.1 ± 0.1 µm. The corrosion performance, typically associated with surface texture, was not always tied to the overused Sa value. CAVF had the highest polarization resistance of 75.8 kΩ.cm2 among the studied methods, followed by TU with polarization resistance of 43.8 kΩ.cm2, showing that the two techniques have a great potential for improving the surface characteristics of the EB-PBF-built Alloy 718 parts.

Abstract [en]

Columnar grain structure typically formed along the build direction in the electron beam-powder bed fusion (EBPBF) technique leads to anisotropic physical and mechanical properties. In this study, casting solidification condition was mimicked, and in situ recrystallization was promoted in EB-PBF to facilitate columnar-to-equiaxed grain structure transition in Alloy 718. This is achieved via a unique linear melting strategy coupled with a specific selection of process parameters in EB-PBF. It was found that site-specific melting using line order number (LON) function affected the cooling rate and temperature gradient, which controlled grain morphology and texture. A high LON resulted in a large equiaxed grain zone with a random texture, whereas a fixed LON with a high areal energy density led to a strong texture. The main driving force in the formation of cracks and shrinkage defects during the transition was investigated. A high LON at a fixed areal energy density reduced the average total shrinkage defects and crack length. The hardness was decreased through the transition, which was linked to the reduction in the size of the gamma ‘’ precipitates.

Abstract [en]

A unique melting strategy was implemented in electron beam-powder bed fusion (EB-PBF) of Alloy 718, resulting in the formation of a bimodal grain morphology consisting of fine equiaxed and columnar grains. The microstructure was preserved following various thermal post-treatments. The post-treated specimens were exposed to low cycle fatigue (LCF), and fatigue crack growth (FCG) tests in ambient air at 600 °C under pure and dwell-time (120 s) fatigue cycles. Clustered inclusions spanned a region of 100-600 µm in length acted as the crack initiation site, reducing the specimens' total fatigue life. When compared to pure fatigue cycles, dwell-time fatigue cycles reduced LCF life by approximately 35%, regardless of the thermal post-treatments. Due to a high fraction of grain boundary area in the as-built EB-PBF specimens, oxygen diffusion across the grain boundaries was enhanced. The intergranular fracture mode was favored in the plastic zone ahead of the crack tip, leading to rapid crack growth. No unbroken ligaments behind the crack front were found by high-resolution X-ray computed tomography, which was consistent with a large crack opening displacement linked to severe deformation around the crack tip.

Abstract [en]

Deployment of a suspension feedstock has been known to alleviate problems associated with using sub-micron and nanosized powder feedstock for thermal spraying of monolithic as well as powder-suspension ‘hybrid’ composite coatings. However, a powder-suspension hybrid feedstock has never been previously used in high-velocity air-fuel (HVAF) spraying. In this work, for the very first time, a chromium carbide (Cr3C2) suspension has been co-sprayed along with an Inconel-625 (IN-625) powder by the HVAF process as an illustrative case study. Two variants of the IN-625 + Cr3C2 hybrid coatings were produced by varying relative powder-suspension feed rates. For comparison, pure IN-625 coating was also deposited utilizing identical spray parameters. Detailed microstructural characterization, porosity content, hardness measurement and phase analysis of the as-deposited coatings was performed. The suspension-derived carbides were retained in the bulk of the coating, resulting in higher hardness. In the dry sliding wear test, the hybrid coatings demonstrated lower wear rate and higher coefficient of friction (CoF) compared to the conventional, powder-derived IN-625 coatings. Furthermore, the wear rate improved slightly with an increase in Cr3C2 content in the hybrid coating. Post-wear analysis of the worn coating, worn alumina ball and the wear debris was performed to understand the wear mechanisms and material transfer in the investigated coatings. In the potentiodynamic polarization test, higher corrosion resistance for hybrid coatings than conventional IN-625 coatings was achieved, indicating that the incorporation of a secondary, carbide phase in the IN-625 matrix did not compromise its corrosion performance. This work demonstrates a novel approach to incorporate any finely distributed second phase in HVAF sprayed coatings to enhance their performance when exposed to harsh environments.

Abstract [en]

This study presents a unique melting strategy in electron beam-powder bed fusion of Alloy 718 to tailor the grain morphology from the typical columnar to equiaxed morphology. For this transition, a specific combination of certain process parameters, including low scanning speeds (400-800 mm/s), wide line offsets (300-500 mu m) and a high number of line order (#10) was selected to control local solidification conditions in each melt pool during the process. In addition, secondary melting of each layer with a 90. rotation with respect to primary melting induced more vigorous motions within the melt pools and extensive changes in thermal gradient direction, facilitating grain morphology tailoring. Four different types of microstructures were classified according to the produced grain morphology depending on the overlap zone between two adjacent melt pools, i.e., fully-columnar (overlap above 40 %), fully-equiaxed (overlap below 15 %), mixed columnar-equiaxed grains, and hemispherical melt pools containing mixed columnar-equiaxed grains (overlap similar to 20-25 %). The typical texture was <001>; however, the texture was reduced significantly through the transition from the columnar to equiaxed grain morphology. Along with all four different microstructures, shrinkage defects and cracks were also identified which amount of them reduced by a reduction in areal energy input. The hardness was increased through the transition, which was linked to the growth of the.” precipitates and high grain boundary density in the fully-equiaxed grain morphology.

Abstract [en]

Additive manufacturing (AM) processes are being frequently used in industry as they allow the manufacture ofcomplex parts with reduced lead times. Electron beam-powder bed fusion (EB-PBF) as an AM technology isknown for its near-net-shape production capacity with low residual stress. However, the surface quality andgeometrical accuracy of the manufactured parts are major obstacles for the wider industrial adoption of thistechnology, especially when enhanced mechanical performance is taken into consideration. Identifying theorigins of surface features such as satellite particles and sharp valleys on the parts manufactured by EB-PBF isimportant for a better understanding of the process and its capability. Moreover, understanding the influence ofthe contour melting strategy, by altering process parameters, on the surface roughness of the parts and thenumber of near-surface defects is highly critical. In this study, processing parameters of the EB-PBF techniquesuch as scanning speed, beam current, focus offset, and number of contours (one or two) with the linear meltingstrategy were investigated. A sample manufactured using Arcam-recommended process parameters (threecontours with the spot melting strategy) was used as a reference. For the samples with one contour, the scanningspeed had the greatest effect on the arithmetical mean height (Sa), and for the samples with two contours, thebeam current and focus offset had the greatest effect. For the samples with two contours, a lower focus offset andlower scan speed (at a higher beam current) resulted in a lower Sa; however, increasing the scan speed for thesamples with one contour decreased Sa. In general, the samples with two contours provided a lower Sa (∼22 %)but with slightly higher porosity (∼8 %) compared to the samples with one contour. Fewer defects were detected with a lower scanning speed and higher beam current. The number of defects and the Sa value for thesamples with two contours manufactured using the linear melting strategy were ∼85 % and 16 %, respectively,lower than those of the reference samples manufactured using the spot melting strategy.

Abstract [en]

Electron beam-powder bed fusion (EB-PBF), a high-temperature additive manufacturing (AM) technique, shows great promise in the production of high-quality metallic parts in different applications such as the aerospace industry. To achieve a higher build efficiency, it is ideal to build multiple parts together with as low spacing as possible between the respective parts. In the EB-PBF technique, there are many unknown variations in microstructural characteristics and functional performance that could be induced as a result of the location of the parts on the build plate, gaps between the parts and part geometry, etc. In the present study, the variations in the microstructure and corrosion performance as a function of the parts location on the build plate in the EB-PBF process were investigated. The microstructural features were correlated with the thermal history of the samples built in different locations on the build plate, including exterior (the outermost), middle (between the outermost and innermost), and interior (the innermost) regions. The cubic coupons located in the exterior regions showed increased level (~ 20 %) of defects (mainly in the form of shrinkage pores) and lower level (~ 30-35 %) of Nb-rich phase fraction due to their higher cooling rates compared to the interior and middle samples. Electrochemical investigations showed that the location indirectly had a substantial influence on the corrosion behavior, verified by a significant increase in polarization resistance (Rp) from the exterior (2.1 ± 0.3 kΩ.cm2) to interior regions (39.2 ± 4.1 kΩ.cm2). © 2020, The Author(s).

Abstract [en]

Alloy 718 manufactured via electron beam-powder bed fusion (EB-PBF) was coated with a thermally- sprayed NiCoCrAlY coating for enhanced oxidation protection. A high-velocity air fuel technique was used to deposit the coating. The specimens were then subjected to hot isostatic pressing (HIP). Oxidation of the specimens was undertaken in an ambient air environment at 650 and 800 °C for 168 h. The oxidation performance of EB-PBF-built Alloy 718 was improved after the deposition of the coating, particularly at 800 °C. In this temperature, a thick Cr-rich oxide scale was found on the uncoated Alloy 718 specimen, whereas a thin and stable Al-rich oxide scale was formed on the surface of the coated specimen. HIPing enhanced the oxidation resistance of uncoated Alloy 718; however, the oxidation behavior of coated Alloy 718 was negatively affected by HIPing. © 2020 The Authors

Abstract [en]

Fatigue crack initiation of Alloy 718 additively manufactured via electron beam-powder bed fusion (EB-PBF) process was investigated. The melt parameters were chosen to achieve sufficient energy input and minimize process-induced defects. A line offset of 200 µm with enough line energy was used, leading to the formation of wide and deep melt pools. This strategy facilitated the formation of equiaxed grains at the melt pools bottom, and short columnar grains within the melt pools aligned parallel to the build direction. The mixed grain morphology and texture were retained after various thermal post-treatments, including heat treatment (HT), hot isostatic pressing (HIP), and HIP-HT. Micron-sized non-metallic inclusions in the feedstock powder, such as Al-rich oxide and titanium nitride clustered during the EB-PBF process, and remained intact during the post-treatments. Low cycle fatigue cracks mainly originated from the non-metallic inclusions found near the surface of the test specimens. HIPing was able to remove a portion of the internal defects, including round-shaped and shrinkage pores; therefore, a small fatigue life enhancement was observed in HIP-HT compared to HT.

Abstract [en]

In this work, a fast optical spectrometer was used to monitor the Directed Energy Deposition (DED) process, during the deposition of Alloy 718 samples with different laser power, thus different energy inputs into the material. Spectroscopic measurements revealed the presence of excited Cr I atoms in the plasma plume. The presence was more apparent for the samples characterized by higher energy input. The Cr depletion from these samples was confirmed by lower Cr content detected by Energy-Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (EDS) analysis. The samples were also characterized by higher oxidation and high-temperature corrosion rates in comparison to the samples produced with low energy input. These results prove the applicability of an optical emission spectroscopic system for monitoring DED to identify process conditions leading to compositional changes and variation in the quality of the built material.
