Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory -Researchers Develop Efficient Method to Measure Residual Stress in 3D Printed Parts

  LIVERMORE, California – Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory researchers have developed an efficient method to measure residual stress in metal parts produced by powder-bed fusion additive manufacturing. This 3D printing process produces metal parts layer by layer using a high-energy laser beam to fuse metal Read More »
