AbstractAdditive manufacturing is becoming very popular in many industries. There is now plenty of different technologies that fit into
the additive manufacturing category and they all share a common
feature: their capability to create parts with very complex geometries which may not be feasible otherwise. Despite this significant
advantage, some applications present surface quality requirements
that are not met by the additive manufacturing process.
A machining process is then required to obtain the final part.
Within this context, Labomap/ENSAM, LEM3/Univerity of Lorraine and CEMEF/Mines Paris have joined forces to study the machining process of additive manufactured pars thanks to the CENTURION project funded by the ANR. The CENTURION project is
centered on Additive Manufacturing (AM) using Laser powder fusion Melting (L-PBF) process and machining, without applying heat
treatment, to produce high quality parts in Inconel 718 (IN718).
ProfileThe candidate must have a strong interest in numerical modeling of complex system.

Knowledge of material testing, solid mechanics, and programming skills in Fortran are a clear asset.
