21st European Conference on Composite Materials (ECCM21)

Additive manufacturing of organic matrix composites, whether through automated fiber placement (AFP), 3D printing (FFF) or 4D printing, represents a tremendous opportunity to re-invent materials and structures.

Session “8.1 Additive Fabrication of composite materials” is organized by:

-Antoine Le Duigou, UBS IRDL (France)
-Ugo Lafont, ESA ESTEC (France)

This session  will deal with Additive Fabrication of composites to gather the latest research on exciting topics, including (but not limited to):

  • Design methods for additive manufacturing (IA, machine learning, topological optimization, material by design, biomimicry, etc.)
  • New materials and new functionalities (Architectured materials, biocomposites, smart materials, multi-materials etc.)
  • Advanced process development and technology (new process, monitoring…),
  • Process modeling and simulation (thermo-mechanical coupling, etc.),
  • Microstructure and Induced singularities and defects,
  • Characterization and innovative properties (multi-function, morphing, mechanical, fatigue, aging, etc.)
  • 4D printing (design, material and multifunctional properties, etc.)
