UT-DC1: Design and application of additive manufactured shape-memory alloys

Supervisors: Prof. Ian Gibson, Assistant Prof. Mehrshad Mehrpouya, Associate Prof. Tom Vaneker (UT) and Associate Prof. Andrey Molotnikov (RMIT)

Project 1: Additive manufacture (AM) of shape memory alloy lattice structures

Additive manufacture (AM) of shape memory alloy lattice structures using laser powder-bed fusion of metal nitinol powders. Effective build parameters and part performance evaluation. This study will build on already existing knowledge in this field.

Project 2: Design of shape memory alloys for laser powder-bed fusion

Investigation into novel shape memory alloys and how they can be made suitable and implemented using laser powder-bed fusion (LPBF): a comparative study. This will look at different candidates for shape memory effect and how those effects can be obtained using LPBF.

Project 3: Design and application of additive manufactured shape-memory alloys

Design of novel applications using shape memory alloys processed using laser powder-bed fusion. Applications may be in various areas, including automotive, aerospace and medicine.
