The application of composite through-thickness assessment to additively manufactured structures (2017)
Conference Proceeding
Bitar, I., Aboulkhair, N., & Leach, R. (2017). The application of composite through-thickness assessment to additively manufactured structures. In Solid Freeform Fabrication 2017: Proceedings of the 28th Annual International Solid Freeform Fabrication Symposium – An Additive Manufacturing Conference, 616-632

This study looks into the applicability of through-thickness assessment to additive manufacturing (AM) carbon-fibre reinforced polymers (CFRPs). The study utilised a material extrusion printer that uses fused filament fabrication and composite filame... Read More

Nano-hardness and microstructure of selective laser melted AlSi10Mg scan tracks (2015)
Conference Proceeding
Aboulkhair, N. T., Tuck, C., Maskery, I., Ashcroft, I., & Everitt, N. (2015). Nano-hardness and microstructure of selective laser melted AlSi10Mg scan tracks. In Industrial Laser Applications Symposium (ILAS 2015)doi:10.1117/12.2190015

Selective laser melting (SLM) of aluminium alloys faces more challenges than other ongoing alloys such as stainless steels and titanium alloys because of the material’s properties. It is important to study single scan tracks if high density large par... Read More
