Abstract

This research demonstrates the feasibility of mapping composite properties to improve the structural performance and functionality of composites. The composite morphology is controlled by combination of high-precision liquid resin printing and consolidation programmes. This localised deposition enables higher additive loading and decreases the manufacturing costs compared to bulk modification of polymer composites. This novel technique maps local composites properties hence enabling a design space which exhibits greater stiffness contrast, which leads to improvement in the structural performance. Further, the functional properties can be tailored to local requirements by utilising a variety of additives like carbon nanotubes and core shell rubber particles.
