What is advanced composites manufacturing, why was the UT-led consortium was selected by the president, and what is the impact for the area?
Suresh Babu, UT-ORNL Governor’s Chair for Advanced Manufacturing, was quoted in an article in R & D Magazine about a new additive manufacturing method developed at ORNL that controls the structure and properties of metal components with precision unmatched by conventional manufacturing processes. “We’re using well established metallurgical phenomena, but we’ve never been able to
UT will be part of a national effort, announced today by President Barack Obama, which could lead to more fuel-efficient cars and decreased costs for ships and aircraft. Suresh Babu, UT–Oak Ridge National Laboratory Governor’s Chair for Advanced Manufacturing, and a team of faculty, will help lead UT’s research effort in the $140 million Detroit-based institute, called the Lightweight and Modern Metals Manufacturing Innovation, or LM3I—one of two institutes announced today.
The Detroit News featured a White House announcement of a new project called the Lightweight and Modern Metals Manufacturing Innovation, or LM3I, of which UT is a partner. The project puts a focus on lighter, yet stronger materials which will help improve the performance, enhance the safety, and boost the energy and fuel efficiency of
The Knoxville News Sentinel wrote a story about UT and ORNL’s t11th joint Governor’s Chair, an advanced manufacturing expert from Ohio State University. Sudarsanam Suresh Babu, a professor in the Welding Engineering Program in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, has conducted research that has helped develop 3D printing — the layering of materials
