"Optimization of components for additive manufacturing"

This project aims to advance techniques for lattice optimization in the context of additive manufacturing using titanium alloy (Ti-6Al-4V). We study the full workflow from selection of parametrized base cells for stiffness optimization, the optimization algorithm, the interpretation of optimized results, as a macroscopic lattice design including predefined solid and void non-design regions, and the generation of a ready-to-print surface description of the lattice structure. For the field of structural optimization, the SGP (Sequential Global Programming) algorithm is advanced allowing the distinct choice between solid, void and lattice during the optimization process.
