Call for Abstracts: Mach Conference - Architected Materials

Stavros Gaitanaros's picture

Please consider submitting an abstract to the Symposium Architected Materials: Design, Fabrication and Characterization for the 2019 Mach Conference which will take place on April 3-5 in Annapolis, MD.

The deadline for abstract submission is November 1.

Organizers: Stavros Gaitanaros (JHU), Jamie Guest (JHU), Jordan Raney (UPenn)

Material processing technologies are rapidly advancing and manufacturers now have the ability to control material architecture with unprecedented precision at multiple length scales. This provides unique opportunities for tailoring and/or optimizing material properties through the design of a material's architecture. For example, microtruss lattices have been shown to combine high strength and stiffness at low densities, while more complex architectures have been designed using topology optimization to achieve previously unrealized combinations of multi-physics properties.

This mini-symposium will discuss the latest advances in computational design, fabrication, and characterization of architected materials. 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Advances in Design
   Architectural design algorithms based on optimization (topology, shape, parametric optimization)
   Material systems such as micro-truss lattices, hierarchical architectures, functionally graded architectures, and tailored foams
   Design for dynamic properties, energy absorption, manufacturability, flaw-tolerance (robustness)

Advances in Manufacturing
  Advances in additive manufacturing for realization and tailoring of architected materials
  3D weaving, knitting and other fiber forms/preforms
  Functional materials and interfaces in architected materials
  Multi-material, multi-length-scale fabrication processes
  Scalable self-assembly techniques
  Use of machine learning in additive manufacturing

Advances in Characterization
  Multi-scale testing (e.g. linking constituent, topological and bulk properties)
  3D tomography and related techniques

Applications of optimized architected materials are also of interest, including mechanical metamaterials, phononic crystals, and multifunctional materials.
