Investigations have been conducted into the production of Functionally Graded Structures (FGS) with varying composition and porosity using Direct Metal Laser Remelting (DMLR), a Rapid Prototyping (RP) technology. Following a series of experiments on a number of metal systems and analyses conducted using a series of metallographic and spectrographic techniques (SEM-EDS, XRD), it has been possible to assess the viability of a processing system to produce tailored structures.
