Summary

Fused Deposition of Ceramics (FDC) is a novel ceramics manufacturing process for the production of complex geometry parts. Computational thermal models have been developed to gain understanding and predictive ability for FDC, due to the fundamental role played by heat transfer in all manufacturing steps. The numerical model developed has been used to investigate the mechanisms of bonding deficiency generation, for different process parameters.
