Abstract: The Directed Energy Deposition Additive Manufacturing (DED-AM) of SS316L was studied using in situ and operando synchrotron X-ray imaging to quantitively understand the effect of processing parameters on the melt-pool morphology and surface quality. It was found that surface roughness of DED-AM builds can result from melt pool surface perturbations caused by changes in the melt flow and build stage motion perturbations. Process maps are developed that quantitatively correlate build quality to process parameters including powder feed rate, laser power and traverse speed. How the AM process parameters control build efficacy is clarified, and the processing conditions required to dampen surface perturbations leading to roughness were determined.
