Successful PhD Defense

Congratulations to Dr. Matt Schmitt for recently defending his PhD thesis! Matt’s thesis was titled “Development of Material Extrusion Infill Optimization Approaches for Various-Resource Entities.” The whole SMSD Group is commending you for your outstanding accomplishment, Dr. Schmitt, and wishing you the best!

Matt Schmitt Journal Publication

Congratulations to Matt for his paper “Advancements to commercial 2D infill for lightweighting of structural FDM components” being published in Progress in Additive Manufacturing! Matt’s paper improves upon common commercial infill patterns by introducing continuously variable infill patterns. These changes showed improvement to failure strength and overall mass of 3D printed components.

Excellent work, Matt!

Stephen Roper publication to SMO

Stephen’s paper titled “Simultaneous isotropic and anisotropic multi-material topology
optimization for conceptual-level design of aerospace components” has been published to Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization. Stephen’s paper introduces the use of both isotropic and anisotropic materials in the same topology optimization 3D design space. Then, applies this multi-material optimization method to various components of a passenger aircraft seat.

Congratulations Stephen on your publication!

Evan Munroe publication to SMO

Evan’s paper titled “Structural design of a morphing serpentine inlet using a multi-material topology optimization methodology” has been published to Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization. Evan’s paper presents an approach for multi-material optimization of an aircraft inlet duct, and investigates the trade-offs between structural performance versus morphing ability of the inlet.

Congratulations Evan on your publication!
