    Research at UC3M: How 3D printed metals fracture

    A study carried out by the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Texas A&M University (USA) and the Israel Institute of Technology has identified two mechanisms that produce the mechanical failure of 3D printed metals used in the aerospace and automotive industry and subjected to extreme loading conditions. This advance, which improves our understanding of how micro pores inside these metals behave, will help us design stronger materials which can be used in other fields, such as for implants in the biomedical industry.
