Abstract

Wire arc additive manufacturing (WAAM) is the most sophisticated method for creating parts by layer-by-layer material deposition. It can create large-sized components with greater rates of deposition, lower manufacturing costs, and shorter production times. Products based on WAAM have superior mechanical and metallurgical qualities, making them ideal for use in aeronautical engineering. However, because of the issues with porosity, corrosion, delamination, residual strains, and oxidation, WAAM is currently being under investigations. This review study primarily addresses the subject of industrial applications of WAAM of aluminum alloys, difficulties associated with material processing, optimization methods and mathematical modeling of WAAM.
