TMS Additive Manufacturing Materials and Processes Workshop
Date: Sunday, October 9, 2022
Time: 1:00 p.m. to 5:30 pm
Location: David L. Lawrence Convention Center, Room 315
Register for this workshop through the MS&T22 registration form
Additive manufacturing (AM) has become popular in the last few years, although seminal developments took place 25–30 years ago. The purpose of this workshop is to familiarize participants with AM processes and enable them to explore further to address their specific industry needs and leverage research opportunities. We will begin with providing an overview of current AM processes for metals, polymers, and ceramics; followed by a focused discussion on metal AM including powder bed fusion and directed energy deposition processes; and concluding with industry practices and needs. The discussions will highlight current challenges and research opportunities.
This workshop is designed for people in the materials and manufacturing community who want to learn more about AM processes. Academics and researchers will also benefit from discussions about current challenges to the full adoption of AM. Participants will become familiar with current AM processes and future directions.
Sneha P. Narra, Lead Instructor
Assistant Professor, Carnegie Mellon University
About the Presenter
Sneha P. Narra received her B.E. in civil engineering (2012) from Osmania University in India. She then moved to the U.S. to pursue graduate education at Carnegie Mellon University, from where she received her M.S. in computational mechanics (2013), M.S. in mechanical engineering (2015), Ph.D. in mechanical engineering (2017), and postdoctoral training at the NextManufacturing Center. She subsequently joined the mechanical engineering department at Worcester Polytechnic Institute as an assistant professor in 2018. She spent three years at WPI’s material and manufacturing engineering program prior to joining the CMU mechanical engineering Department in 2021. Her research focuses on advancing metal additive manufacturing knowledge to manufacture light-weight organic designs and utilize novel, advanced materials. At a scientific level, her group studies the fundamentals of additive manufacturing processes, investigates the resulting material microstructure and properties, and develops process design paradigms. She is currently serving as the associate editor of the Additive Manufacturing journal and plays an active role in organizing symposia through the TMS Additive Manufacturing bridge committee and additive manufacturing-related educational activities.
Associate Professor, Colorado School of Mines
About the Instructor
Joy Gockel is an associate professor of Mechanical Engineering at Colorado School of Mines. Her current research spans several aspects of additive manufacturing by connecting the processing-structure-properties-performance relationships using modeling, in-situ monitoring, materials characterization and mechanical testing. She joined Mines from Wright State University where she was an assistant professor in the Mechanical and Materials Engineering Department. Prior to her faculty positions, she was a lead engineer at GE Aviation’s Additive Technology Center. Joy earned her Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University, where she studied the influence of additive manufacturing processing parameters on melt pool geometry and microstructure. She has received the 2020 ASTM International Additive Manufacturing Young Professional Award, the 2021 TMS Young Leader Professional Development Award and the 2021 International Outstanding Young Researcher in Freeform and Additive Manufacturing Award.
The Barnes Group Advisors
About the Instructor
Kirk Rogers has used additive technologies to solve manufacturing, repair, and supply chain problems for the last ten years. He recently was the technical leader on the startup of a $40M Additive Manufacturing R&D center, the culmination of a nearly 20-year career at GE and is now Senior ADDvisor℠ at the Barnes Group Advisors. The majority of Rogers’s career has been in the medical device manufacturing realm, where he built manufacturing lines for and qualified numerous products. Rogers has 25 years of experience in materials processing and business strategy, including metal powder production, novel joining methods, metal additive manufacturing, novel refractory alloys, sustainable manufacturing, carbon composite materials, powder metallurgy, technology portfolio management, identification and application of new process methodologies, and development of patent and technology strategy. Rogers has obtained three U.S. patents and has filed more than 20 trade secrets and patent applications. He obtained his B.S. in Materials Engineering from Case Western Reserve University and Ph.D in Materials Science and Engineering from Purdue University. He completed postdoctoral work at The Ohio State University and is a certified Six Sigma Blackbelt.
Associate Professor, Kansas State University
About the Instructor
Scott Thompson is a Steve Hsu Keystone Associate Professor in the Alan Levin Department of Mechanical & Nuclear Engineering in the Carl R. Ice College of Engineering at Kansas State University (KSU). He received both his B.S. and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Missouri (MU) in 2008 and 2012, respectively. Thompson’s research focuses on the thermal modeling of the metals additive manufacturing (AM) process and in characterizing its produced parts for harsh environments. He has published 25 peer-reviewed journal articles directly related to the directed energy deposition and laser powder bed fusion and AM processes. He has helped secure and lead several externally-funded research projects from agencies such as the DoD, DoE, DARPA, NSF, and NASA. He is the Lead Track Chair for Advanced Manufacturing for the upcoming 2023 ASME IMECE conference and a member of ASME, AIAA, and TMS.

Improve Your Networking Skills Workshop by TMS
Date: Monday, October 10, 2022
Time: 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Location: Westin Hotel, Cambria Room
There is no cost to participate in this event for MS&T22 attendees, but please RSVP using this brief registration form.
Learn skills you can use at MS&T22 and beyond! This one-hour event invites students and professionals to develop a practical approach to networking. Emily Kinser of 3M and Vice Chair of the TMS Professional Development Committee will present an interactive learning opportunity where attendees will identify personal networking goals, learn how to lower barriers to personal networking, and develop a personal elevator speech. This will be followed by a hands-on networking activity to practice new skills.
Participants from all career levels are encouraged to attend, so that students and early-career professionals can learn from their more experienced colleagues. There is no cost for MS&T22 attendees to participate in this workshop, but pre-registration is requested. If you plan to attend, please fill out this simple registration form.
