The development and application of additive manufacturing (AM) technologies is constantly increasing.

Abstract

The development and application of additive manufacturing (AM) technologies is constantly increasing. However, in many applications, AM parts are subjected to multiaxial loads, arising from operating conditions and/or complex geometries. These make AM components serious candidates for crack initiation and propagation mechanisms. Therefore, a deep understanding of the multiaxial fatigue behavior of AM parts is essential in many applications where durability and reliability are core issues. In this study, multiaxial fatigue of Ti6Al4V thin-walled tubular specimens, made by Selective Laser Melting (SLM) process, was investigated by combined axial-torsional loads. Infrared thermography (IR) was also used to investigate the temperature evolution during fatigue tests. Results highlighted different damage mechanisms and failure modes in the low- and high-cycle fatigue regimes.
