Additive manufacturing techniques give access to a huge variety of new potential parts design and structure, sometimes not feasible through conventional manufacturing techniques. New part shape optimization calculation tools are currently being developed, but need fundamental inputs in order to define boundary limits linked to the global performances of additive manufacturing. The goal of the topic is to work on a series of elementary specimens made of powder bed laser technique, representative of a heat exchanger pattern in order to build a common database of performances (fluid, thermal) mapped with key design parameters (geometry, manufacturing process). This database will then be applied to a test case in order to evaluate the optimization potential. Due to the relevance of the activity in the field of novel manufacturing processes and associated data base the topic is associated to the Eco Design Transverse activity. Please refer to the full topic descriptions document published in this call.
