A publication co-authored by our Simulation Team Leader colleague, Tamás Turcsán Ph.D., won the Technical Literary Award of the Scientific Association for Mechanical Engineering (GTE). The paper is entitled “Simulation Analysis of Continuous Fiber Reinforced Composites using Additive Manufacturing Technology”.
Our simulation team leader colleague, Tamás Turcsán Ph.D. was involved in a publication entitled “Simulation analysis of continuous fiber reinforced composites using additive manufacturing technology”. The paper won GTE’s Technical Literary Award this year. The award was presented in May 2023 at the 55th GTE Delegates Assembly. GTE annually acknowledges the authors of the best article published in any of the association’s journals or in the national or regional technical press in the preceding year, which demonstrates the most outstanding theoretical or practical contributions to the field of GTE’s activities.
In the study, co-authors examined the applicability of a fiber direction segmentation method in the simulation of a continuous fiber–reinforced additive manufactured polymer composite structure. They designed the fiber reinforcement orientation for this topology-optimized component, then investigated the behavior of these structures using finite element analysis. Afterward, they manufactured the reinforced parts and performed validation tests. Test and simulation results were compared regarding stiffness characteristics, failure location, and deformations.
