Modeling and control of freeze-form extrusion fabrication of ceramics
"Freeze-form Extrusion Fabrication (FEF) is a novel, environmentally friendly solid freeform fabrication method developed for the fabrication of ceramic-based components. The method is based on extrusion deposition of ceramic pastes using water as the binding media. The ceramic solids loading can be 50 vol. % or higher and initial studies have focused on the use of aluminum oxide (Al₂O₃). This thesis describes the development of the FEF machine and an open control system with on-line process sensing and control capabilities for building ceramic parts with this process"--Abstract, leaf iii.
