About the workshop



The general aim of the workshop is to promote international collaboration and share the current knowledge on the structural integrity 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:

- AM and 3D printing technology

- Fatigue of AM materials

- Simulation of AM processes

- Structural integrity assessment of AM materials

- Testing of AM materials

- Theoretical and numerical models for AM materials


All materials are concerned, particularly: metals and alloys, ceramics, polymers, gel, biomaterials, sintered materials




The workshop will be held at the

Univ. Politehnica Timisoara (UPT), Central Library

4 Bulevardul Vasile Parvan, Timisoara, Romania
