Behavior by Design
In situ mechanical testing
Metal additive manufacturing
Behavior by design is a novel design strategy employed to create innovative architectured materials with original plastic behaviors, through metal additive manufacturing. New architectures, such as the Ti-6Al-4V lattice structure below, are tailor-made by considering a target plastic behavior, typically with an unusual shape, which brings new functionalities to the material. A key aspect of the method is the control of how local deformation fields evolve in the architecture depending on the interplay between geometrical, surface and microstructural effects. A multi-field mapping approach (strain, stress, microstructure) featuring in situ deformation experiments is used to develop fundamental mechanisms in the architecture, leading to the novel macroscopic behaviors.
