Fabrication of Novel Functional and Structural Materials via Additive Manufacturing

This collaborative research carries out three research topics. The first topic is to design lattice-structured materials and multimaterials with novel functions with an aid of computer simulations such as topology optimization. The second one is to fabricate the designed materials with additive manufacturing technologies that can fabricate parts with arbitrary shapes from 3D-CAD data without mold and subtractive machining process. The third one is to establish advanced process technologies by combining additive manufacturing with conventional processing. Based on these researches, we aim to develop novel functional and structural materials that cannot be realized by traditional process technologies.
