New York, NY – August 30, 2016 – Senvol hosted the Cellular AM Summit at its New York City headquarters today. The summit served as a kickoff meeting for a U.S. Army Phase II SBIR award recently made to Materials Sciences Corporation. In addition to Senvol, Materials Sciences Corporation, and the U.S. Army, other members of the SBIR project team include Dassault Systemes, United Technologies Research Center, ExOne, MedCAD, and the University of Pittsburgh.
The SBIR topic is titled “Cellular Architecture Optimization for Tailored Frequency Response in Missile Components and Structures.” With recent advances in additive manufacturing technologies, components and structures that can benefit from cellular design and optimization are now being realized. The project team will develop analysis tools for determining cellular architectures, frequency based topology optimization codes that make use of cellular architectures, and design tools to develop cellular structures.
