- 3D Printed Rotor Blades for a Research Wind Turbine
Presented by Jörg Alber
This study combines the design, 3d printing, and testing of a wind turbine for research and teaching purposes. The objective is additive manufacturing 1 m long rotor blades using the Gyroid infill as an alternative to conventional methods, such as CNC milling or lamination.
- Upscaling Design of Printed Lattice Structures: Hip Bones to Turbine Blades
Presented by Alex Moss
Through combining topology optimization, cellular structures, and additive manufacturing, improved structural efficiency and manufacturability are applicable to many new research areas. What opportunities can be seized, utilizing materials, manufacturing, and structural design knowledge to print optimized lattices at scale?
- Gyroid Infills for Structural Optimization and Biomedical Applications
Presented by Ana Pais
Functionally graded cellular structures allow for many possibilities in the field of structural optimization and implant design in order to avoid stress shielding. The gyroid shape is particularly suitable for permeability, cell growth, and proliferation. This presentation shows ways of combining 3D printing and numerical simulation to achieve new designs for biomedical implants with a higher success rate.
