Workshop Introduction: Welcome and Meeting Objectives

Robert Schafrik welcomed participants to the Workshop on New and Novel Processes on the Verge of Industrial Modernization, an activity of the National Research Council’s (NRC’s) Standing Committee on Defense Materials, Manufacturing and Infrastructure (DMMI). The DMMI committee, which is under the auspices of the NRC National Materials and Manufacturing Board (NMMB), meets at the request of its sponsor, Reliance 21, a Department of Defense (DOD) group of professionals established in the DOD science and technology (S&T) community to increase awareness of DOD S&T activities and increase coordination among the DOD services, components, and agencies. Dr. Schafrik explained that this workshop would focus on three topics: additive manufacturing, electromagnetic field manipulation of materials, and design of materials. He explained that the workshop is an open meeting, that the publication produced from the workshop will be publicly available several months after the workshop concludes, and that no classified, proprietary, or For Official Use Only information was to be presented or discussed during the workshop. The workshop publication summarizes the discussions and presents the views of individual participants. There are no conclusions or recommendations that reflect a corporate or consensus position of the DMMI, the NMMB, or any other entity of the NRC. The report will serve as record of the activity, not a consensus report.

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.
