Dr. Jorgen Bergstrom co-authored a paper that was presented at the 2017 SES (Society of Engineering Science) Conference in Boston, Massachusetts, July 25-28, 2017. The title of his presentation was “Mechanical Properties of 3D Printed Polymeric TPMS Cellular Materials.” TPMS (triply periodic minimal surfaces) are infinitely continuous smooth surfaces that separate a space into two intertwined complex regions. Three types of TPMS are used to generate polymeric cellular materials and this paper investigates computationally and experimentally their mechanical properties. His presentation was part of Symposium IX-B: Mechanics of 3D Printed Materials and Structures. Read the abstract here.
