Abstract

This paper outlines the findings of an on-going research study investigating the properties of a range of steel and titanium-based micro-lattice structures manufactured using the selective laser melting (SLM) technique. Initially, tension tests have been conducted on strands manufactured at different build angles. Micro-lattice block structures, with struts oriented at +/-45 o were then tested in compression at quasi-static rates of loading. The failure mechanisms have been investigated using both optical and scanning electron microscopy. These tests have highlighted the attractive properties offered by these complex architectures.
