New HSLA steel powder for naval 3D printing applications being developed at Pitt

A research team from the Swanson School of Engineering at the University of Pittsburgh have received $449,000 in funding from the Office of Naval Research (ONR) in order to develop next-generation 3D printing metals, including a new type of steel which could be used in additive manufacturing. The new metal will be a high-strength, low-alloy (HSLA), a type of steel well suited for naval building and repair applications. The research project itself, entitled “Integrated Computational Materials Design for Additive Manufacturing of High-Strength Steels Used in Naval Environments,” is being led by Dr. Wei Xiong, an assistant professor in the […]
