Chair for Digital Additive Production (DAP) of the faculty of Mechanical Engineering at RWTH Aachen University is closely collaborating with Fraunhofer ILT and Chair for Laser Technology and mainly focusing in the area of Additive Manufacturing. The institute aims to extend the knowledge in this topic and to play a strong role in the market at an international level. Therefore, hot topics such as Topology Optimization and Lattice Structures are of great interest to the institute. The institute is working on industrial and publicly-funded projects in various areas such as automotive industry, aerospace, turbomachinery, medical technology and tool and mold making industry. A very good working atmosphere is offered by the institute in which you can find people with a strong background in processing, design and simulation of AM-produced parts and process itself. Therefore, it is a right place to gain good work experience by interacting directly with the people in the institute.
We are developing a software package for lattice structures right now. We are interested in the development of a specialized space-filling tree structures. The goal is to obtain design rules for special structures which can be used in the cutting-edge light-weight design. An algorithm for this purpose will be developed together with the student. The student should then implement it in a programming language. This will be built in a 3D printer in the institute and be tested for its mechanical properties to ensure that it satisfies the design expectations. The design rules for this sort of parts will be extracted and documented. Your tasks can be summarized as:
We are looking for a student with the following requirements:
