My scientific activities concern the eco-design of metallic and composite materials using artificial intelligence and additive manufacturing techniques for different applications ranging from thermomechanical to energy storage and energy harvesting applications.
More precisely, my activities focus on the sinter-based additive manufacturing (SBAM) techniques for which a feedstock, containing organics compounds and ceramics or metal particles, is extruded to form a designed 3D shape. If needed, the obtained structure can be heat treated to remove the organic compounds and to sinter the inorganic particles. Among the existing techniques, the following techniques can be cited: Fused Filament Fabrication, Direct Ink Writing or Metal Injection Molding.
The main goals of my research project are (i) to optimize the extrusion/printing of the feedstock using artificial intelligence tools and microstructural analyzes, (ii) to determine the efficient post treatments to obtain 3D structures with intended microstructures (grain size, phases, porosity) and properties (mechanical, thermal, energy, …) and (iii) to contribute to the development of improved computational models from experimental data. Main characterization techniques involved are Scanning electron Microscopy with Energy Dispersive X-Ray analysis (SEM-EDX), X-Ray computed micro-tomography, X-Ray Diffraction (XRD), dilatometry. Future works will also be devoted to the recycling of 3D printed structure. Focusing on the recovery of the inorganic particles, new powders with characteristics in accordance with the SBAM techniques would be synthesized before being 3D printed once again. Particularly, depending on the chemical and physical of the inorganic particles, appropriate techniques will be implemented to minimize the pollution.
