International Excellence Talks
Excellence lives on exchange and networking among the best researchers worldwide. That is why we want to invite you to join us in a new lecture series, International Excellence Talks, where internationally renowned scientists will give insights into their current research topics and, ideally, inspire a broad audience of scholars. This monthly event will include a 30-minute keynote lecture and a platform for networking and informal exchange among researchers with a wide range of interests. Recordings of previous talks can be found on the KIT International Excellence Talks YouTube Channel.
Multidisciplinary Design and Analysis of Multifunctional Lightweight Systems by Prof. Dr. Kamran Behdinan
Prof. Dr. Kamran Behdinan
In industrial product development, the importance of design flexibility, individualization and load-compliant design of component geometry is steadily increasing due to increasing emission regulations. These design requirements can be achieved by implementing advanced manufacturing (AM) processes, such as additive manufacturing, to produce near-net-shape geometries. Given the versatility of AM, there are still numerous pathways which are unexplored to improve the overall outcome of the process. Integrating Topology Optimization (TO) and Health Monitoring (HM) methodologies into the Additive Manufacturing Process, one can easily give shape to Advanced, Lightweight, Structures which would vastly improvise current trends and methods. In this presentation, advanced techniques in design and analysis of lightweight structures will be discussed. It will summarize major research projects conducted in intelligent manufacturing and lightweight structures at the UofT ARL-MLS.
The event will be held via Zoom. In order to participate, just click on this Zoom Link (Meeting ID: 669 4642 1296).
No registration is necessary. After the keynote lecture, we invite you to join the informal discussion with Prof. Behdinan and other participants.
