Cost-effective Manufacturing of Architected Composite Materials in Multiscale



Establish the relationship between architected material's structure cell (geometry and size) and the properties (mechanical, wear resistance and heat conduction, etc.) by the method of combining numerical simulation and experiment. Based on the fundamental research, develop cost effective techniques to manufacture architected materials with superior properties for used in various industrial sectors. The research undertaken mainly focus on: numerical simulation study on the influence of topological structure on impact toughness of the co-continuous ceramic/metal composites, 3D printing technique for the fabrication of architected material; multiscale wear resistance steel matrix composite; interpenetrated SiC/Al(Cu) composites for heat sinking; carbon fiber reinforced silicon carbide matrix composite; chitin based materials: Study the molecular structure control technology of chitin based materials; develop various chitin based medical dressings.
