Efficient Approach To Manufacture 3D Metal Parts Developed By Researchers
2014-06-17 03:15:18

By Kenneth K Ma, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory researchers have developed a new and more efficient approach to a challenging problem in additive manufacturing -- using selective laser melting, namely, the selection of appropriate process parameters that result in parts with desired properties. Selective laser melting (SLM) is a powder-based, additive manufacturing process where a 3D part is produced, layer by layer, using a high-energy...

Series Of Experiments Show Initial Gain In Fusion Fuel
2014-02-12 14:37:51

Breanna Bishop - Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Ignition -- the process of releasing fusion energy equal to or greater than the amount of energy used to confine the fuel -- has long been considered the "holy grail" of inertial confinement fusion science. A key step along the path to ignition is to have "fuel gains" greater than unity, where the energy generated through fusion reactions exceeds the amount of energy deposited into the fusion fuel. Though ignition remains the...

Scientists Discover How Explosives Respond To Shockwaves
2013-12-12 15:49:37

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory researchers have combined ultrafast time-resolved experimental measurements with theory to reveal how an explosive responds to a high-impact shock. The work involved advances in both ultrafast experimental shockwave methods and molecular dynamics (MD) simulation techniques, and the combination of experiment and simulation is a milestone in understanding chemical initiation and detonation. When an energetic...

Getting Close To Igniting A Self-sustained Fusion Reaction
2013-09-25 09:08:02

American Institute of Physics The dream of igniting a self-sustained fusion reaction with high yields of energy, a feat likened to creating a miniature star on Earth, is getting closer to becoming reality, according the authors of a new review article in the journal Physics of Plasmas. Researchers at the National Ignition Facility (NIF) engaged in a collaborative project led by the Department of Energy's Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, report that while there is at least one...
