Effective design and simulation of surface-based lattice structures featuring volume fraction and cell type grading (2018)
Journal Article
Maskery, I., Aremu, A., Parry, L., Wildman, R., Tuck, C., & Ashcroft, I. (2018). Effective design and simulation of surface-based lattice structures featuring volume fraction and cell type grading. Materials and Design, 155, (220-232). doi:10.1016/j.matdes.2018.05.058. ISSN 0261-3069

In this paper we present a numerical investigation into surface-based lattice structures with the aim of facilitating their design for additive manufacturing. We give the surface equations for these structures and show how they can be used to tailor... Read More

An investigation into reinforced and functionally graded lattice structures (2016)
Journal Article
Maskery, I., Hussey, A., Panesar, A., Aremu, A., Tuck, C., Ashcroft, I., & Hague, R. J. (in press). An investigation into reinforced and functionally graded lattice structures. Journal of Cellular Plastics, doi:10.1177/0021955X16639035. ISSN 0021-955X

Lattice structures are regarded as excellent candidates for use in lightweight energy absorbing applications, such as crash protection. In this paper we investigate the crushing behaviour, mechanical properties and energy absorption of lattices made... Read More
