Involved in the design and development of hybrid Fiber Metal Laminates (FMLs) for structural applications. Furthermore, mechanical characterization of the developed FMLs is carried out to evaluate their practical functionality for aerospace and defense applications. The work extends to determine the machinability of the developed FMLs. The study aims to minimize the machining-induced defects in FMLs.

Additive manufacturing (AM) is an emerging technology where near-net-shape physical components are manufactured by layer-by-layer material deposition. However, several processing-related issues still plague the process, which complicates its machinability and damages the surface integrity and quality of the AM parts. Therefore, the study aims to characterize and improve the machinability of additively manufactured difficult-to-machine materials.
