Cenaero has participated to the recent Additive
Manufacturing modeling benchmark tests organized by the NIST (National
Institute of Standards and Technology - USA) and designed to compare numerical
simulations against rigorous and highly controlled additive manufacturing
experimental data (https://www.nist.gov/ambench).
During the Additive Manufacturing Benchmark 2018 Conference held at NIST (Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA June 18-22, 2018), Cenaero was awarded 1st place (tie) for the best modeling results predicting the residual stresses within an as-built IN625 bridge structure by the 2018 AM-Bench Organizing Committee (https://www.nist.gov/ambench/awards).
