4D Printing of Shape Memory Alloys for Near Net Shape Manufacturing of Smart Parts for Kinetic Energy Harvesting and Aeronautical Applications

This work investigates an additive manufacturing route of producing functional net shaped parts from pre-alloyed magnetic shape-memory alloy powders e.g. Ni-Mn-Ga and TiNi. Shape memory alloy powders that will be used in this investigation will be produced by ball milling (BM) method. Additive manufacturing via Direct Metal Laser Melting (DMLM) will be used in this research due to the reason that it removes the need of post-printing sintering and the possibility to obtain complex shaped parts from the shape memory alloys. The fourth-dimension (4D) is created by the predictable change in 3D printed part configuration over time as the result of shape-memory functionality. DMLM will be proved successful in producing net shaped porous structures (spring-like, 3-D hierarchical lattice structures, etc. with good mechanical strength. It is intended to produce parts with porosities ~25% by using powders with distinct morphologies. The printed parts undergo reversible martensitic transformation during heating and cooling, which is a prerequisite for the shape-memory behavior. Thermo-magneto-mechanical trained 3D printed parts obtained from ball milled alloy powders will be expected to produce reversible magnetic-field-induced strains (MFISs) of up to 0.01% – 1% for energy harvesting applications and proper sealing behavior for aeronautical applications.
