About the Conference


The general aim of the conference is to promote international collaboration and share the current knowledge on the structural integrity and design of additively manufactured materials and the related disciplines. Of particular interest is the understanding of the role of the AM printing conditions and parameters on the final reliability and safety of AM materials, especially those to be used in load bearing applications.

The workshop is open to any contribution addressing the problem of characterizing AM materials for traditional as well as for advanced applications in a broad range of technological fields such as biomechanics, electronics, engineered materials, metamaterials, etc.


Presentations addressing the following topics are particularly welcome:

- Structural integrity assessment of AM components

- Mechanical and fracture testing of AM materials

- Fatigue, durability, and reliability of AM materials

- AM and 3D printing advanced technologies

- Simulation of AM processes

- Design of AM parts & process optimization

- Theoretical and numerical models for AM materials

- Advanced AM materials and structures

- Composite AM materials


All materials are concerned, particularly: metals and alloys, ceramics, polymers, soft materials, gels, biomaterials, sintered materials, metamaterials



The workshop will be held in presence at the

Central Library, Polytechnic Univ. of Timisoara (UPT), Romania

Bulevardul Vasile Parvan 2, Timișoara, Romania (Google map)




All the Sessions and the related presentations will be both in presence & online
