dc.description.abstract The purpose of this work has been to show that Ti-6Al-4V alloys produced using the Arcam EBM process meet all the necessary requirements stated in AMS 4999 and other Ti-6Al-4V specifications. Ti-6Al-4V samples were fabricated using the Arcam EBM process and their microstructural and mechanical properties were evaluated using optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, tensile testing, hardness testing, and fracture testing. The results of these tests showed that, in general, the Arcam EBM produced samples were satisfactory. en_US
