Grants to Enhance Computer Modeling and Qualification Methods for 3D Printing

University of Pittsburgh engineers have received grants to develop modeling and simulation technologies and standard qualification methods for additive manufacturing (AM), which is widely known as 3D printing. AM enables production of metal components with complex structures having distinctive lattice geometries. However, the quality standards required for testing as well as the modeling processes used have not kept up with the advances in technology. [More]

Innovative Simulation Method Enables High Precision Measurements of Interfacial Tension

Innovative Simulation Method Enables High Precision Measurements of Interfacial Tension

Computer simulations play an increasingly important role in the description and development of new materials. Yet, despite major advances in computer technology, the simulations in statistical physics are typically restricted to systems of up to a few 100,000 particles, which is many times smaller than the actual material quantities used in typical experiments.
