Unit-cell in HFSS HFSS offers different method of creating and simulating a large array. The explicit method, shown in Figure 1(a) might be the first method that comes to our mind. This is where y...
Using Material Designer To Perform Homogenization Studies Editor's Note: 3D Printing and other advanced manufacturing methods are driving the increased use of lattice-type structures in structu...
One of the great new features in ANSYS Mechanical 19.2 is the ability to perform a lattice optimization.  Accomplished as an option within Topology Optimization, lattice optimization allows us t...
WHY did nature evolve cellular structures? In a previous post, I laid out a structural classification of cellular structures in nature, proposing that they fall into 6 categories. I argued that it...
What types of cellular designs do we find in nature? Cellular structures are an important area of research in Additive Manufacturing (AM), including work we are doing here at PADT. As I described in...
How can the mechanical behavior of cellular structures (honeycombs, foams and lattices) be modeled? This is the second in a two-part post on the modeling aspects of 3D printed cellular structures. ...
Our work on  3D printed honeycomb modeling that started as a Capstone project with students from ASU in September 2015 (described in a previous blog post), was published in a peer-reviewed paper rel...
In this post, I discuss six challenges that make the modeling of 3D printed cellular structures (such as honeycombs and lattices) a non-trivial matter. In a following post, I will present how som...
Updated (8/30/2016): Two corrections made following suggestions by Gilbert Peters: the first corrects the use of honeycomb structures in radiator grille applications as being for flow conditioning, th...
I am writing this post after visiting the 27th SFF Symposium, a 3-day Additive Manufacturing (AM) conference held annually at the University of Texas at Austin. The SFF Symposium stands apart from ...
