Funding: ANR PRCE 2018 (Project funded by the French research agency ANR)

Partner companies: DPRI, Prodways RAF, Safran

Supervision : Vincent HUGEL and Sébastien CAMPOCASSO and Matthieu MUSEAU (G-SCOP, Grenoble)


The PhD prepared is about metallic additive manufacturing. The main objective is enquiring about the ability to build repeatable patterns to fill the volume of metallic parts made using WAAM (Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing) process. The PhD is part of the ANR BeShape program.
Keywords: Multi-axis path generation, Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing, Patterns.
