Wire arc additive manufacturing (WAAM) can create large parts, due to its high deposition rate. WAAM can be used to create functionally graded materials (FGMs) such as a strong core of high strength low alloy (HSLA) steel and corrosion-resistant cladding of austenitic stainless (AUS) steel. However, HSLA and AUS steel are dissimilar metals with...

Additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, offers a new paradigm for the way functional products are designed, manufactured, and assembled. Its additive nature provides the ability to create complex-shaped parts, without an increase in production time or costs, which would be difficult to produce with conventional manufacturing. In addition,...

The building sector is a big contributor to environmental problems. It is responsible for the extraction of 24% of earths raw materials, it generates 40% of total waste and 40% of the total energy use comes from the built environment. The building industry focusses on production rather than lifespan, leading to materials not being separable....

The thesis aimed to characterize the effects of manufacturing-induced defects, particularly gaps in variable stiffness laminates. The primary focus centered on designing a specimen capable of accurately characterizing gap effects. A refined, element-level specimen design featuring a controlled gauge zone was developed, based on pre-defined...

An investigation into the application of additive manufacturing to the production of structural joints was conducted for this thesis. The main goal was to determine all necessary aspects that someone needs to consider when designing a structural part that is intended to be printed with additive manufacturing. As an example, the branched column...

Throughout history, human progress has been defined by the mastery of materials, transitioning from stone and bronze to the steel age. However, this progression has not only been defined by the materials utilized but has also encompassed a shift in processes, moving from the industrial to the information era. Despite the advances in fabrication...

With growing demand for air transportation, it is crucial to improve the efficiency of aircraft systems design. A key area of focus is the implementation of manufacturability considerations into the design process at early stages. This could be done by integrating manufacturability analysis modules into an MDAO workflow, however, each production...

The emerging high-resolution 3D printing technique called two-photon polymerization (2PP) enables to print devices bottom-up rapidly, contrary to the top-down lithography-based fabrication methods. In this work, various polymer microbeams are 3D printed and their resonant characteristics are analyzed to understand the origin of damping. The...

Auxetic cementitious cellular composites (ACCCs) exhibit desirable mechanical properties (e.g., high fracture resistance and energy dissipation), due to their unique deformation characteristics. In this study, a new type of cementitious auxetic material, referred to as peanut shaped ACCC, has been designed and subsequently architected using...
