Research themes

Discovery, understanding, and innovation in AM is a key element of the research strategy of both this CDT and the EPSRC Centre in AM. The overriding concerns of AM research and the broader community prioritize process control (repeatability) and the effects of (multi) material deposition – be this from a design, manufacturing or material standpoint. This broader research challenge not only exists to counter the lack of innovation currently afforded by current AM processes and systems but also the requirements of new multi-material AM that aims to produce graded and multi-functional components in single builds.

The CDT has identified a number of cross-cutting themes to tackle the research challenges and move towards the successful deployment and increased efficacy of AM and 3DP.... [-]
