Additive manufacturing (AM) material assurance has relied upon traditional test coupons and testing methods that work well for wrought materials, but fail to address the unique and not as well-known characteristics of AM parts. A new standardized, integrated test coupon was designed specifically for AM that allows for non-destructive testing of material properties, allowing for repeated testing through a series of environments in order to characterize part reliability.
