Constrained Topology Optimization For Additive Manufacturing Of Structural Components In Ansys®
Topology Optimization is currently the main technique to optimize an objects structural design. This method commonly produces parts that have exceedingly complex geometry. Additive manufacturing (AM) is the main manufacturing ...
Design, Analysis And 3D Printing Of Architected Sandwich Panels
In this study, we implement a finite element approach and conduct experimental impact tests to evaluate the performance of 3D printed lightweight sandwich panels with architected cellular cores of programmable six-sided ...
Effect Of Additives On Cutting Temperature Of Glass Fibers Reinforced Polymers
Composites are abrasive materials that generate heat during machining operations. This heat generates thermal damage locally and may severely alter the mechanical properties of the components if it exceeds the glass ...
Design And Rapid Prototyping Of Novel Ventricular Assist Device
According to statistics coronary heart disease is one of the most common causes of death in the world. Heart failure patients with these diseases are the most common one. External assisted Pumps help ventricular thrust can ...
Thermal Conductivity Of Advanced Architected Cellular Materials
The Influence of Powder Size and Packing Density on the Temperature Distribution in Selective Laser Melting
Metal powder properties in Selective Laser Melting (SLM) is among one of the most important factors when implementing new alloy developments for the equipment. In fact, not all commercially available metal powder alloys ...
Glass micro-cutting by Spark Assisted Chemical Engraving
Glass remains a difficult to machine material. Its brittleness, chemical resistance and relatively high thermal conductivity challenges available technologies. An interesting approach is to the use of hybrid technologies ...
Investigation into the Influence of Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Process Parameters on the Thermal Properties of 3D-Printed Parts
The mechanical properties of 3D-printed parts have been extensively studied and the effects of printing parameters on them have been investigated. However, there are limited reliable data for the thermal properties of the ...
Natural Frequencies Of Internally-Doubly-Tapered Laminated Composite Beams
In the present study, the free vibration response of symmetric thickness-and-width-tapered (doubly-tapered) laminated composite beams is investigated. Considering the continuous-plies-interspersed ply drop-off configuration, ...
Compressive Instabilities In Metal-Coated Polymer Microtrusses
Lightweight structures directly contribute to the sustainability of aviation, as their use reduces the structural weight of aircraft which in turn reduces fuel burned during flight. One family of lightweight structures are ...
