Additive Manufacturing
Capt. Erin Hager’s research determined that AF-9628 is an optimal material for additive manufacturing due to its high strength. While her findings are comparable to values reported in a similar U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Army Research Laboratory study, she yielded similar mechanical properties to conventionally forged and heat-treated AF-96. Dr. Sean Gibbons, a research materials engineer with expertise in steel, describes this finding as “exciting.” (Courtesy photo/Air Force Institute of Technology)
