To that end, TWI has recently delivered over £2M of public-funded R&D related to AM modelling as well as a large number of industrially-funded research and consultancy programmes to help companies leverage emerging modelling capabilities. This work has focused on high-performance AM heat exchangers; topology optimisation to design light-weight, highly efficient parts; and microstructure predictions to change process parameters to achieve better performing parts.
