Brenham, Texas – Dr. Agustin Diaz – Senior Research Chemist, REM Surface Engineering, contributes his expertise in post-processing in Additive Manufacturing to the recent publication, “Metal Additive Manufacturing for Propulsion Applications”, authored by Paul R. Gradl, Omar R. Mireles, Christopher S. Protz and Chance P. Garcia.  Additive manufacturing (AM) processes are proving to be a disruptive technology and are grabbing the attention of the propulsion industry. AM-related advancements in new industries, supply chains, design opportunities, and novel materials are increasing at a rapid pace. The focus of the text is to provide an overview of the practical concept-to-utilization lifecycle in AM for propulsion applications. Dr. Agustin’s Diaz contribution can be found within the 8th chapter titled, ‘Component Performance and Application Characteristics’.

“This book chapter showcases the many aspects in which AM components can be applied and the implications that an intelligent design for AM (DfAM) and design for surface finishing (DfSF) have on the performance of the components,” says Dr. Agustin Diaz.  “In addition, it has a great recompilation of data and case studies that we gathered to shed light on these critical topics. For me, it was a pleasure to work with the guys at NASA Marshall on this endeavor, and we are eager to keep working on this cutting-edge field with them.”
