Grant for research on 3D printed nodes

The Architecture and Engineering research group has received a grant for research on 3D printed nodes for structural steelwork connections in civil engineering and architecture.

This project aims to develop peridynamics to integrate design, analysis and additive manufacturing with application to 3D printing of metal. Mechanical joints are often both geometrically complex and subjected to varying loads, with a scale and a complexity that is appropriate for the development of mathematical tools that can integrate architectural design with computational analysis and additive manufacturing.
