Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies allows innovative approaches for the production of mechanical components. Despite the increasing development of new processes, knowledge of mechanical properties, failure mechanisms and fatigue behavior is not yet sufficiently thorough. The limited availability of data, from the design point of view, is a barrier that limits the extension of the application field to structural components. The aim of the research is to investigate mechanical, cyclic and fatigue properties of components in materials of different nature made by AM, comparing their behavior with analogous components obtained from traditional technologies. For this purpose, it is expected to use advanced methodologies for deformation measurement (DIC) to be used for the identification of constitutive laws and comparison with FEM structural analysis.
