Resonance and damping behavior of lattice structures produced by Selective Laser Melting
Lagiň, Adam ; Čížek, Petr (referee) ; Koutný, Daniel (advisor)
In reaction to the uptrend of additive manufacturing of lightweight structured metallic parts, this diploma thesis is focused on the resonant and damping behavior of micro-truss lattices produced by Selective Laser Melting (SLM) technology. Micro-truss structures already found usage in various types of optimizations. Therefore, the optimization of resonance or damping could be also assumed as possible. For this purpose, several finite element analysis approaches were used, including the referent solid element model and simplified beam models. Obtained results were verified experimentally via pulse modal analysis. Material and mechanical properties of samples for FEA results and experimental results comparison were unified through secondary experiments. The main goal of this research was to explore the behavior of resonance and damping of structures when their elementary parameters are changed. The results from both, numerical and experimental approaches confirm that the eigenfrequency and the damping ratio of the structure can be affected by the change in the truss diameter, cell size, or type of structure. The work also presents the successful methods for simplified beam model optimization, which guarantees its high precision in the wide field of tested samples. This newly obtained knowledge creates a comprehensive overview of micro-truss structures, which can be used for the conscious design of ultra-light parts with the required eigenfrequency and damping ratio.
Design of support structures for parts made of Inconel 718
Kuhajdik, Matej ; Hutař, Pavel (referee) ; Koutný, Daniel (advisor)
This master thesis deals by the design of support structures for the production of parts made of nickel superalloy IN718 using selective laser melting (SLM). The aim of this work is to design a support structure so that technological problems (excessive deformation of the part due to high residual stresses and insufficient heat dissipation) are eliminated and replace the use of massive volume support, which is inefficient in terms of design and production time, consumed material and postprocessing. Mechanical behaviour of residual stresses of built component, design points of selected support structures (perforated block with pins, BCCZ with perforated contour) and design recommendations were quantified by using thermo-mechanical simulations of production and series of experiments. The functional sample was tested by designing specific support structures for the turbine wheel with subsequent production. The support structure ensured safe, successful production without potential problems and met the requirement to minimize material consumption through effective large-scale perforation of the structure.
Design of auxetic structures for the 3D print
Sobol, Vítězslav ; Škaroupka, David (referee) ; Červinek, Ondřej (advisor)
Behavior in which the material expands in one direction and in a perpendicular direction under tensile loading is called auxetic and is associated, e. g. with increased indentation resistance. Auxetic behavior is mainly due to the typical geometry of the internal structure. Therefore, it can be achieved by a unique arrangement of inner micro-lattice structure. Through additive technologies such as Selective Laser Melting (SLM), it is possible to manufacture such complex geometry. This bachelor thesis deals with the design of a spatial micro-lattice structure that will exhibit auxetic behavior and can be made by the SLM method. Based on an extensive research on the topic of 2D and 3D auxetic structures, a new type of auxetic structure was designed. The manufacturability was verified by making several samples in different dimensional configurations. Auxeticity and mechanical properties were subsequently tested using a drop test. By evaluating it, it was possible to determine the influence of dimensional parameters on the overall behavior of the structure.

The aim is to assess the possibilities of using metal 3D printing on a part intended primarily for heat transfer. This work presents several concepts of structure arrangement, which are further analysed and evaluated. The results show the potential of additive technologies in this area and the proposed structures meet the heat transfer requirement according to the calculations used.
Design of fast magnetorheological damper piston group using selective laser melting technology
Vítek, Petr ; Růžička, Bronislav (referee) ; Strecker, Zbyněk (advisor)
The diploma thesis deals with the development of the magnetic circuit of Magnetoreological (MR) dampers with a short time response. To achieve a short response time, a shape approach was chosen whereby the geometry of the magnetic circuit was chosen to significantly eliminate the occurrence of eddy currents. The influence of structures on magnetic properties was first examined on a simpler toroidal core and then the optimization was subjected to the magnetic circuit of the MR damper itself. Geometry optimization was done using FEM simulations. The resulting geometry was made of pure iron using Selective Laser Melting technology (SLM). In addition, a MR damper was completed and its properties on air and with MR fluid were measured, which were then compared with previously developed rapid MR dampers. It has been found that the newly designed magnetic circuit achieves similar time responses as all other compared fast MR dampers and reaches a higher dynamic range than most of the compared variants. The proposed magnetic circuit also has a significantly reduced weight.
The use of small punch tests for materials with a higher level of structural inhomogeneity
Gordiak, Michal ; Řehořek, Lukáš (referee) ; Válka, Libor (advisor)
Master's thesis deals with evaluating applicability of correlation relationships between material characteristics determined by Small Punch Test and standard tensile test for material AlSi7Mg0,6 manufactured by casting and technology SLM. Results of Small Punch Tests are correlated with yield strength, tensile strength, elongation, and Young's modulus of elasticity. For each material characteristic various correlation methods are compared, while for each method corresponding coefficients are determined. Consequently, the applicability of individual methods is evaluated by substituting coefficients determined by various studies. Primarily analyzed are correlation methods for which future normalization is expected. The results of master's thesis show that structural inhomogeneity caused by SLM process does not result in high inaccuracies in determining material characteristics. Larger impact on material characteristics has high porosity, which was identified in cast material and led to significant deviations in evaluating tensile strength and elongation.

Předložená dizertační práce je součástí většího výzkumného projektu, který si klade za cíl využití mikro prutové konstrukce vyrobené technologií SLM jako absorbér rázové energie s přesně navrženými vlastnostmi. Hlavním cílem práce je vývoj numerického modelu deformačního chování mikro-prutové konstrukce vyrobeného technologií Selective Laser Melting (SLM) z materiálu AlSi10Mg. Aby bylo možné dosáhnout hlavního cíle dizertační práce, bylo nutné analyzovat vliv procesních parametrů technologie SLM na tvorbu vnitřních materiálových vad a drsnost povrchu při výrobě mikro-prutové konstrukce. Tyto imperfekce degradují její mechanické vlastnosti a jejich odstranění zlepší možnosti a přesnost numerické predikce. Výsledky ukazují významný vliv dvou hlavních parametrů – skenovací rychlosti laseru a výkonu laseru. Na základě těchto poznatků byly dále definovány parametry vstupní energie Ein a lineární energie Elin, které zahrnují oba zmíněné parametry a byly definovány jejich limitní hodnoty pro minimalizaci vzniklých imperfekcí. Deformační chování vyrobené mikro-prutové konstrukce bylo analyzováno na navrženém pádové zařízení, které umožňuje testování s dopadovou energií až 120 J. Deformační chování je vyhodnocováno s využitím obrazové analýzy záznamu vysoko rychlostní kamery a silového průběhu z tenzometru. Výsledky analýzy byly využity pro validaci numerického modelu v programu ANSYS Explicit, do kterého byly implementovány poznatky o reálném tvaru vyrobeného mikro-prutového materiálu ve formě eliptického modelu geometrie a informace o reálných mechanických vlastnostech ve formě vyvinutého materiálového modelu. Výsledné porovnání výsledků experimentu s predikcí numerického modelu ukazují dobrou shodu v místě maximálního zatížení Fmax (odchylka 5 %) i průběhu celé deformace vzorku. Tyto poznatky budou v budoucnu využity při návrhu absorbéru energie s definovanými mechanickými vlastnostmi.
