Researchers contribute to understanding of microstructure effects on strength of additively manufactured stainless steel

Los Alamos researchers and collaborators added significant experimental results to the understanding of how microstructure affects the properties of additively manufactured 304L-grade stainless steel.

This new data and understanding aids the field of intelligently designed structural materials, which could offer more predictable materials that are less likely to result in catastrophic failure. Read more in the current STE Highlights.
