UConn adds systems to advance R&D capabilitiesThe University of Connecticut’s Pratt & Whitney Additive Manufacturing Centre (www.energy.uconn.edu/pratt-whitney-additive-manufacturing) has added a materials-testing and simulations system that researchers say will advance its R&D capabilities.

Researchers at UConn say the Gleeble 3500 system (made by Dynamic Systems Inc) can simulate additive-manufacturing processes and generate material performance data that will enhance computer modelling simulations, which is critical when it comes to refining metallic 3-D printing processes, alloy development and post-build material characterisation.

UConn and DSI have also set up a research collaboration that will give the university advanced training opportunities and a funded research project.
