Abstract
Sciperio with team members Georgia Institute of Technology and Centecorp have teamed up to develop an Additive Manufacturing Composite using nano and micro fillers. The team will develop multi-scale models that are supported by experimental characterization for advanced 3D Printable materials. Inelastic response of high strength hierarchical structures composed of engineered materials and specifically polymers and plastics that are loaded with a controlled nano and/or micro particles, strings, rods, tubes or flakes will be investigate the. Phase I will produce models and AM composite materials which will be used to 3D Print a specifically designed structure with high tensile and compression strength.
