Designing 3D printed materials based on virtual material testing

Towards the realization of "Materials Informatics"

Date: 6 October 2021

Timetable: 14:00 CET

Speakers: Koji Yamamoto

Language: English

The microstructure of materials can now be controlled by additive manufacturing process with 3D printers. For example, it is possible to reduce the weight of a material by creating voids. This is expected to be superior to composite materials such as CFRP. This is not the only important feature. The material properties can be freely controlled by designing the voids as well.

In order to design such materials with a high degree of freedom, it is recommended to use virtual material tests and a data science approach that effectively utilizes the big material database obtained through those tests.

In this presentation, we will introduce an analysis case including an operational demonstration where a linked solution between Multiscale.Sim and Ansys Granta MI is used to achieve this.
