ASTM International to Host November Symposium on Additive Manufactured Parts


The ASTM International committees on additive manufacturing technologies (F42), fatigue and fracture (E08), and nondestructive testing (E07) are sponsoring the ASTM Symposium on Structural Integrity of Additive Manufactured Parts, November 6-8, 2018, at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Washington, D.C., USA. The symposium will be held in conjunction with the November standards development meetings of the committee. 

The symposium is supported by the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), U.S. the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and the European Structural Integrity Society (ESIS) TC15.

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 symposium 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 principles, as well as qualification and certification criteria. This event is designed for professionals within the additive manufacturing community including industrial (aerospace, medical, automotive, and defense), academic, government, and regulatory.  

Registration questions can be directed to Tessa Sulkes (see below). For technical questions, contact symposium co-chairs Nima Shamsaei (, Steve Daniewicz (, Nik Hrabe (, Stefano Beretta (, Jess Waller (, or Mohsen Seifi (
