Anisotropic Radiation-Induced Changes in Type 316L Stainless Steel Rods Built by Laser Additive Manufacturing

This study investigated radiation effects on 316L stainless steel fabricated through a metal powder bed fusion 3D printing process in order to explore the potential for use of metal 3D printed components within nuclear reactors. This project was funded by Department of Energy (DOE) and was a collaboration between Lockheed Martin, Texas A&M University, and Western Illinois University-Quad City Manufacturing Lab.
