Porosity Analysis for Additively Manufactured Ti 6Al 2Sn 4Zr 2Mo Alloy
November 03, 2017
This work analyzed the porosity of an additively manufactured Ti 6Al 2Sn 4Zr 2Mo sample using Robo-Met.3D®, an automated serial sectioning system. The results from this 3D serial sectioning analysis were then compared to classical 2D stereological methods (Saltykov stereological theory). For this data set, the classical 2D methods were found to underestimate the porosity size and distributions of the larger pores.
