Finite Element Analysis and Optimization of Design Considerations for 3D Printing	

All 3D Printing users know that not any CAD model can be 3D printed. If a CAD design is to be 3D printed, the model should be meeting the requirements to a number of Design Rules and Considerations. According to our previous research, a good 3D Print starts with a well-designed model, which is simulated in FEM and optimized for 3D printing. We have already developed a number of design guideline which requires the minimum features, such as minimum wall thickness and maximum unsupported overhang length and angle. Moreover the guidelines highly depends on the 3D printing technology and choice of hardware/software.

Introduction to Granular Physics
A granular material is a conglomeration of discrete solid, macroscopic particles characterized by a loss of energy whenever the particles interact. Some examples of granular materials are powders, snow, nuts, coal, sand, rice, coffee, corn flakes. Granular materials are commercially important in applications in various industries including manufacturing, agriculture, and pharmaceutical. Research into granular materials is thus directly applicable and goes back at least to Charles-Augustin de Coulomb, whose law of friction was originally stated for granular materials.

Why we are interested Granular Grains:
Powders are widely used in Rapid Manufacturing and 3D Printing. Analysis of Powders Flow, Fragmentation and adhesion are not well analyzed. Our interests in yo get a better inside how to control the flow of Powder Flow.

Angle of repose with different supports
Different supports will modify the shape of the pile, in the illustrations below sand piles, though angles of repose remain the same. We would like to reproduce these results from literature and anlayse it for further supports shapes, including 3D and non-planar supports.

Mechanical metamaterials are artificial structures with mechanical properties defined by their structure rather than their composition. They usually ccano be found in the nature, but rather they can be fabricated for example using 3D Printers. Their mechanical properties can be designed to have values which cannot be found in nature, such as a negative Poisson Ratio known as Auxetics Mechanical Materials. 


Project activities include: 
This Projects deals with the analysis, optimization and prototyping of Mechanical Material/Structural combinations, which provide Mechanical Propertiese which ccanot be found in nature.

Sub-modeling Finite Element Analysis of 3D printed structures 

Available as: Course Project, Bachelor/Master Thesis, Practicum, Distance Project, Incoming / Erasmus, Short Term Scientific Mission (EU Funded STSM), Sabbatical Visit, Vocational Training, Volunteer Project


This Project deals with the sub modelling simulation of 3D printed Patterns and calculation of Stress Intensity factor and Stress Concentration in 3D Printed Structures using ANSYS 
We have already published a Project on this Topic, which is available online: 
Sub-modeling Finite Element Analysis of 3D printed structures
J Zarbakhsh, A Iravani… - Thermal, Mechanical and …, 2015 - ieeexplore.ieee.org
http://www.academia.edu/download/40697278/EuroSimE_2015_3DP_Submodel_ver05.pdf

Methods and Analysis to be done: 

- The Process starts with creating a G-Code including 3D Printed Path
- Based on G-Code and 3D Path a Geometry should be created. It can be done partially in an automatic way and partly needs to be done Manually. 
- The Created Geometry should then be transferred to ANSYS for further Analysis and computation of Stress intensity factor. 

After creating the simulation setup, the following parameters should be systematically analyzed :
- Effect of Printing Patterns, Nozzle size
- Effect of Loads and Process speed. 
- Effect of various Materials used in the Model
