Research Project at Aston University Aims to Enhance 3D Printing of Light Metals


 
  • Aston University initiates an innovative research project to develop a mathematical model for 3D printing of light metals, specifically addressing the rapid oxidation of aluminum alloys.

  • The 12-month project, led by Dr. Paul Griffiths, aims to understand the interaction between liquid metal flow and the oxide layer during the casting process.

Aston University in Birmingham has launched a groundbreaking project to develop an advanced mathematical model to improve the processes of liquid metal casting.


The primary focus is on the rapid corrosion of lightweight aluminum alloys when exposed to air, a challenge in the emerging field of 3D printing and additive manufacturing of light metals.


The 12-month project, led by Dr. Paul Griffiths, a senior lecturer in applied mathematics, is supported by £80,000 from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). The goal is to develop a mathematical model that accurately captures the interaction between liquid metal flow and the oxide layer above.
