Defect Detection in Additive Manufacturing Products


The main objective of this project is to detect surface and subsurface defects that are embedded inside the parts that are produced by additive manufacturing. This has to be achieved by optimizing and designing a probe that is sensitive to a very small defects. Above Figure shows the eddy-current non-destructive testing process. A PhD student, Heba Elsayed Farag, is currently working on this project in collaboration with the Multi Scale Additive Manufacturing lab at the University of Waterloo.
