Disruptive technologies like 3D printing have made a big impact in manufacturing, in part by lowering costs and expediting production. Now, 3D printing might be making a similar impact on neutron scattering, too.

Exascale Computing: Accelerating the Path to Born-Qualified

ExaAM, a high-fidelity simulation tool, promises to reduce trial-and-error in additive manufacturing and help create metal 3D-printed parts that are qualified from the beginning.

The science of metal additive manufacturing (AM) today is focused on the quest for born-qualified parts: components that can roll off the print bed and be ready for direct use, including in critical structures like vehicles, airplanes and power plants. To accelerate the work, the Department of Energy’s (DOE) national laboratories are getting ready to apply one of the country’s biggest science tools to the task: exascale computing.
