OFFER DESCRIPTION

The goal of this project is the development of new tools for the design and manufacturing of 3D porous functionally graded materials (pFGMs) that exhibit tailored mechanical properties, in particular pre-designed energy absorption profiles. The ability of controlling the energy absorption of graded materials is of critical importance in a vast range of industrial applications that span from aerospace and construction to transportation and bioengineering. However, due to the intrinsic complexity of pFGMs and the lack of a comprehensive model for such material design, researchers working in the field have limited possibilities and often prefer to proceed with empirical trial-and-error approaches. Here, we propose a new approach towards the design and fabrication of pFGM aimed at i) developing efficient in silico (numerical) modeling of such complex materials enabling the design of porous structures with required mechanical properties, and ii) simplifying / extending the manufacturing procedures.
