Artificial Intelligence driven topology optimisation of Additively Manufactured Composite Components

Project description

New components of improved fracture toughness

The European aerospace and transport industries are increasingly utilising additively manufactured fibre reinforced composite (AMC) components that have been made via fused deposition modelling. This is not a surprise, considering their advantages (fewer machine, material and labour costs, less manufacturing waste, and usage of more efficient materials). However, there is one drawback: AMC components have complex and, in some cases, tessellated geometry, which results in combined and quasi-brittle damage mechanisms. In this context, the EU-funded AI2AM project will develop components of increased fracture toughness. Specifically, it will train surrogate models that will be deployed within a new topology optimisation framework to deliver optimal 3D printed geometries.
