Contribution to Flexcrash
In this project we contribute to develop design concept for hybrid manufacturing, conceiving lightweight components for automotive application. A new paradigm based on Adding-Value Functional Features (AVFF) is adopted. AVFFs are small-scale 3D geometric features deposited on a preformed substrate, giving it one or more additional functionalities. Within Flexcrash, GEM works on the development of AVFF with optimal crash resistance, trough intensive experimental and modelling work.
