ASTM Symposium on Structural Integrity of Additive Manufactured Parts

    Dates: Tuesday November 06 2018 - Thursday November 08 2018

    Sponsored by: F42 Additive Manufacturing Technologies

    Deadline for Abstract Submittal: Sunday June 17 2018

    About the Event

    Papers are invited for ASTM’s 3rd event on Structural Integrity of Additive Manufactured Parts to be held November 6-8, 2018. Sponsored by ASTM Committees F42 on Additive Manufacturing Technologies, E08 on Fatigue and Fracture, E07 on Nondestructive Testing, and supported by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and European Structural Integrity Society (ESIS) TC15, the symposium will be held in Washington, DC in conjunction with the November standards development meetings of Committee E08.

    To ensure the structural integrity of additive manufactured parts, there is a need for establishing process-structure-property-performance relationships; specifically, as they pertain to fatigue and fracture behavior of these components and structures. This event will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas regarding the fatigue and fracture behavior of materials and components fabricated using additive manufacturing with a focus on the lack of industry standards, design principals, as well as qualification and certification criteria. This event is designed for professionals within the AM community including industrial (aerospace, medical, automotive and defense), academic, government and regulatory.

    Paper topics for this symposium include, but are not limited to:

    • Fatigue, fracture, tensile, wear, corrosion, creep behavior of components fabricated using AM
    • Effects of surface roughness, build orientation, heat treatment, size/shape, residual stress, etc.
    • Standards for AM
    • Applicability of existing mechanical test methods to AM parts
    • Development of new test methods for AM parts
    • Effects of process and design parameters on fatigue and fracture behavior
    • Process optimization to improve structural integrity of AM parts
    • Nondestructive evaluation of components fabricated using AM
    • Effect of defect and acceptance criteria for AM parts
    • Microstructure-property predictive models for AM parts
    • Multiscale modeling of the fatigue and fracture behavior of AM materials
    • Structural integrity of additively manufactured biomaterials (Cobalt Chromium, Titanium Alloys, Stainless Steels, NiTi, etc.)

    The language of the symposium will be English.

    Abstract Submittal

    To participate in the symposium, authors must submit a 250-300 word preliminary abstract using the online Abstract Submittal Form no later than June 17, 2018. The form can be accessed by scrolling to the top of the page and clicking “Go to Abstract Submittal Form”. To ensure your abstract was received into the ASTM database, please email and let us know that you have submitted an abstract

    The abstract must include a clear definition of the objective and approach of the work discussed, pointing out material that is new, and present sufficient details regarding results. The presentation and manuscript must not be of a commercial nature nor can it have been previously published. Because a limited number of abstracts will be accepted, be sure that the abstract is complete to allow for careful assessment of the paper's suitability for this symposium. Symposium Chairmen will notify you via postal mail by June 22, 2018 of your paper’s acceptability for presentation at the symposium. If the preliminary abstract is accepted, the presenter/author will be requested to submit a final camera-ready abstract several months before the symposium. The final abstracts will be distributed in an abstract booklet at the symposium.


    Symposium presenters are required to submit their papers to the Selected Technical Papers (STP), an online and printed, peer-reviewed publication for the international scientific and engineering community. After the final selection of abstracts has been approved, the ASTM Editorial Office will send authors’ instructions via email only. Manuscripts to be peer reviewed for the STP are due online to the ASTM Editorial Office no later than October 26, 2018. The corresponding author (the author who is the main contact with ASTM Headquarters) will receive a copy of his/her paper in portable document format (PDF). All published authors will have the opportunity to purchase reprints of their papers at a nominal cost. Only those papers submitted by the manuscript due date will be included in the STP.

    Please note that all submitted papers are subject to single blind peer review and will be submitted to the Library of Congress with an ISBN number and will be reviewed for inclusion in the "Thomson & Reuters Web of Science's Conference Proceedings Citation Index" (CPCI) and Google Scholar.
