New article “Fatigue analysis of hybrid steel construction parts using LPBF on hot-rolled steel”

8 February 2024

In his recent article, Dr. Kanyilmaz and his colleagues looked into the ways to successfully connect metal 3D printed (LPBF) parts to the conventional steel. In particular, they tested fatigue performance of hybrid metal additive manufactured joints vs EN 1993-1-9 steel joints, measured the defects shape and orientation

Is timber better for climate than steel and concrete? It’s actually not that simple

22 January 2024

In today’s Global Construction Review article, Dr. Kanyilmaz challenges the oversimplified views on sustainable construction. His team’s AI-powered tool emphasized that sustainability depends on multiple factors, including building design and material sourcing. Notably, reused steel is identified as exceptionally sustainable, surpassing traditional materials like timber and
