New article: Resource‐efficient joint fabrication by welding metal 3D‐printed parts to conventional steel: A structural integrity study

Together with Filippo Berto (Chair of Mechanics of Materials, Fracture Mechanics and Fatigue, NTNU Norway) and Martina Chierici (PhD candidate, Politecnico di Milano), we presented a ‘hybrid’ manufacturing approach to weld optimized 3d-printed nodes to conventional steel elements, and our numerical modeling approach for its structural integrity study: Chierici, M, Berto, F, Kanyilmaz, A.
