Workshop Statement of Task

An ad hoc committee will convene a 2-day public workshop to discuss future advances in materials processing and properties, including, but not limited to topics such as (1) additive manufacturing; (2) electromagnetic field manipulation of properties; (3) materials by design; and (4) the current state of materials processing capabilities in the U.S. The workshop will also consider additional topics close to and in line with the four mentioned above. The workshop will use a mix of individual presentations, panels, breakout discussions, and question-and-answer sessions to develop an understanding of the relevant issues. Key stakeholders would be identified and invited to participate. Approximately 8-10 speakers will make presentations. An individually-authored Workshop Summary document will be prepared by a designated rapporteur. This workshop is one of two workshops held every year on defense related issues in materials, manufacturing and infrastructure.

The Standing Committee on Defense Materials Manufacturing and Infrastructure (the DMMI standing committee) of the National Materials and Manufacturing Board of the National Research Council (NRC) held a workshop on December 5 and 6, 2012, to discuss new and novel processes in industrial modernization. The participants of the workshop provided their individual opinions but no recommendations were developed as a result of the workshop. The workshop focused on Additive manufacturing, electromagnetic field manipulation of materials, and design of materials.

Additive manufacturing is the process of making three-dimensional objects from a digital description or file. The workshop addresses different aspects of additive manufacturing including surface finish and access to manufacturing capabilities and resources. Electromagnetic field manipulation of materials is the use of electric and/or magnetic fields to change the mechanical or functional properties of a material or for the purposes of sintering. The workshop examined research prioritization in this area as well as other objectives. "Design of materials" refers to the application of computational and analytic methods to materials to obtain a desired material characteristic; the workshop features a discussion on materials genomics in this area and more. Novel Processes for Advanced Manufacture: Summary of a Workshop presents a summarization of the key points of this workshop and includes outlines of the open discussions on each area.
