Publications Read More

Dr. Yan Ming has published 37 first-author international journal articles & English book chapters, including top industry magazines such as Acta Materialia, Scripta Materilia, Materials Today. He has 148 international journal articles and professional book chapters.

Dr. Yan Ming has submitted more than 15 invention patents and utility modelsin the direction of additive manufacturing. His research group successfully developed ultra-low-cost, high-performance 3D printed titanium materials (patent numbers 201710930162.9, 201811564627.4) and successfully developed 7 series aluminum alloy powders for 3D printing (patent number 201811082116.9).

The main academic achievements of Dr. Yan Ming in related fields in the past five years are described as follows:

(1) Developed ultra-low-cost titanium powder for 3D printing (cost is about 20% of commercial spherical titanium powder); explored for the first time a new method to strengthen pure 3D printing of pure titanium; established titanium and titanium alloys in SLM forming model of metallic material inside; invited to write a professional book chapter on 3D printing Ti-6Al-4V.

(2) The effect mechanism of oxygen, carbon and other elements on the mechanical properties of titanium alloys was clarified; it was found that rare earth hydrides can simultaneously remove oxygen and chlorine and other elements in titanium alloys and homogenize the β phase in titanium alloys.
