The Graduate

Challenge:
The Materials
Challenge:
The 3D Printing
Challenge:
The great thing about titanium is that it is strong and
light, so it can be used for any number of things including
car parts, tennis rackets and prosthetic hip joints. It is also
more resistant to corrosion than many other metals, so its
perfect for a wide range of applications.
The 3D Printing
Challenge:
Design a novel component
using additive manufacturing
for a commercial market
(aerospace, automotive,
bio-medical or sporting goods).
The Materials
Challenge:
Use your knowledge of the
performanceproperty
processing relationship to
theorise about what should
happen when powder is
converted to product.
The Graduate
Challenge:
This challenge asks you to
consider how your area of
study might infuence or
beneft the existing CSIRO
activities for titanium or
titanium alloys.

CSIRO 2014 Titanium Challenge Judging Information


3D Printing Challenge
Instructions: Design a part made of Titanium using an Additive Manufacturing or 3D Printing method in a relevant
industry (aero, auto, medical or sporting). Clearly articulate your vision using the following outline in no more than
10 pages.

Use of Titanium............................30 points
Clearly address how titanium adds value to your proposal. Clearly articulate your objectives using no jargon. What
materials are used today and how does that limit the product?

Use of 3D Printing........................30 points
Clearly address how direct manufacturing enables your proposal. What practice is used today? Clearly articulate your
objectives using no jargon.

Innovativeness.............................25 points
Creativity is the art of originality. Innovativeness is taking creativity and reducing it to practice.
Describe how your proposal transcends creative to innovative. What is new in your approach and why do you think
it will be successful?

Value Proposition........................15 points
If youre successful, what difference will it make? Who will care? What market are you addressing? What are the
risks and payoffs? How much will it cost? Please address any technical or commercial gaps that you werent able to
thoroughly research due to time.


Undergraduate Materials Challenge
Heres what we want: Given completely new ways of making metal invented right here at CSIRO, how would you
take that output, a powder, and make stuff with it? The cost is expected to half of current costs and because you
have a powder, you could have less waste. You could be describing a final product or an intermediate product like
sheet or wire.

Entries will be judged on the basis of what is deemed to be a combination of technical understanding and innovative
use of titanium powder processing and performance. Awards will be given to the best proposal per the best efforts
by the judges. Proposals will be awarded points by how well they address the following areas:

Performance............................30 points
Given your recommended processing route, clearly address what the microstructure, property, performance
relationship you would expect? What does it compare with in todays processing methods and how?

Innovation................................30 points
Creativity is the art of originality. Innovativeness is taking creativity and reducing it to practice. Describe how your
proposal transcends creative to innovative. What is new in your approach and why do you think it will be
successful?

Eco-friendliness......................25 points
Sustainability is a key driver for Australia. Please explain how Titanium is important to Australia and what you would
recommend to decision makers about its use. Also explain how your product would drive a better environmental
outcome than what is being done today. This could be in the form of less waste, less energy consumption, better
durability, or generally best use of a limited mineral resource.

Economic Factors...................15 points
If youre successful, what difference will it make? Who will care? What market are you addressing? What are the
risks and payoffs? How much will it cost? Please address any technical or commercial gaps that you werent able to
thoroughly research due to time.


Graduate Materials Challenge
Heres what we want: A concise description of the key aspect in our current knowledge gap that your research is
addressing and what you have contributed to a better understanding of this problem. In what ways could your work
influence or benefit the existing CSIRO activities for titanium or titanium alloys; i.e. powder to product (e.g. cold
spray), metal production (e.g. TiROTM) or manufacturing (e.g. roll compaction/powder consolidation sheet or wire,
thermally assisted machining).

Awards will be given to the best proposal per the best efforts by the judges. Proposals will be awarded points by how
well they address the following areas:

Processing...................................................30 points
Describe what is unique about the processing required in your research. What are the critical parameters and how
are they measured and/or controlled and why?

Performance................................................30 points
Given your processing method, detail what aspects of the microstructure, property, performance relationship you
are tailoring and why? What advantages does this impart to the product compared with the conventional processing
methods and how?

Productivity/Sustainability........................ 25 points
Sustainability is a key driver for Australia and everyone agrees that our limited resources must be used more wisely.
Please explain how titanium is important to Australia and what you would recommend to the decision makers about
its use into the future. Also explain how your product would drive a better environmental outcome than what is
being done today(e.g. this could be in the form of less waste, less energy consumption, better durability, or generally
better use of a limited mineral resource).

The Big Picture...........................................15 points
Provide a concise description of how the impact of your research will make a difference to how things are now and
who will care? Put your work into context with what is happening in the titanium field globally. What market are
you addressing? What are the risks and rewards? (e.g. how much will it cost?, what are the perceived technical or
commercial gaps , what are the likely benefits to the economy
