Project description

The goal of AMCAE is to investigate methodologies for predictive simulation of parts made with Additive Manufacturing techniques. The simulation must allow predicting the mechanical behaviour (stiffness and strength) of parts which incorporate lightweight structures, such as lattice structures.
