Advances in Metal Additive Manufacturing -- the Development and Applications of Electron Beam Freeform Fabrication (EBF3)

Metal additive manufacturing, also called “3D printing,” has blossomed over the past decade, growing from a novelty research area to commercial systems used in a variety of small-scale production applications. Electron beam freeform fabrication (EBF3) is an additive manufacturing process that builds three-dimensional metal parts layer-by-layer using wire feedstock and an electron beam heat source. Researchers at NASA’s Langley Research Center initiated development of EBF3 to address challenges in applying metal additive manufacturing to large-scale structural aircraft components, launch vehicles, and in-space manufacturing for building tools, spares and replacement parts for use in space. This webcast will discuss the maturation of the EBF3 technology from inception to commercialization and will describe some of NASA’s current and emerging applications of this additive manufacturing technology.

P2P Pumped Two Phase Cooling For High Heat Flux Applications

Thermal management solutions for powered applications are becoming more demanding. Traditional air-cooling and pumped single phase liquid cooling systems are becoming too large and heavy to address high heat load applications. Pumped Two Phase (P2P) Cooling solutions are now being more routinely applied for cooling high heat load, particularly when a high degree of isothermality is required. P2P cooling can be applied to all sectors from laser diodes to IGBTs to large scale system applications. This presentation will provide design engineers with a better understanding of the fundamentals of P2P cooling technologies, including new solutions and opportunities for implementation.
