Project 1: Microstructure control in metal additive
Supervisor: Assistant Professor Matteo
Interested applicants, please contact Assistant Professor Matteo
Seita at MSEITA@NTU.EDU.SG.
Project 2: 3D food printing for food and pharmaceutical
Supervisor: Associate Professor Yeong Wai Yee
Co-supervisor: Assistant Professor Zhang Yi
3D printing and bioprinting can be applied in 3D printed food, ingestible implant and pharmaceutical compound.
In this project, the students will develop new printing technology and novel printing materials for these emerging applications.
Project 3: Investigation on the multi-jet fusion process
Supervisor: Associate Professor Wong Chee How
Additive manufacturing or 3D printing, is a family of digital technologies to manufacture objects layer by layer via different enabling technologies such as: powder bed fusion, binder jetting, filament extrusion or vat photo polymerization. This project will explore a novel ‘powder bed’ technology known as Multi Jet Fusion that provides more possibilities for complex, lower-cost parts. Whether used in serial production for single parts or batch manufacturing by shipsets of multiple part numbers, Multi Jet Fusion offers a faster, more cost-effective process for 3D printed parts. The objective of this project is to build a full understanding of the Multi Jet Fusion process at the micro-particle phase through a series of experiments and computer simulations. The experiments include lab tests such as bending and fatigue tests, surface characterization, microstructural and fracture analysis as well as mechanical characterization. The computer simulations include Finite Element Modeling, Computational Fluid Dynamics and Discrete Element Method.
Project 4: Bioprinting and tissue engineering via microfluidics technology
Supervisor: Associate Professor Yeong Wai Yee
In this project, an ultrafine microfluidics system will be utilized to deposit biomaterials and cells.
The project includes developing the governing physics of cell jetting, formulation of materials for microfluidics printing and also developing a proof of concept tissue printing applications.
This is an interdisciplinary project involving physics, materials, cell culture and tissue engineering.
NEWRI Graduate Scholarship
Project: 3D printing of multi-porosity ceramic membranes for process intensification
Supervisor: Professor Chua Chee Kai
Co-supervisor: Assistant Professor Chong Tzyy Haur
Ceramic membranes are widely used in liquid filtration and waste treatment. Conventional ceramic membranes are homogeneous in microstructure and multiple membrane systems with different porosity and pore size have to be used in a typical process flow. This is usually associated with increased cost and process inefficiency.
3D printing is new manufacturing technology that allows freeform custom design and low cost fabrication at low production volume. With recent development in 3D printable ceramic materials, there is an opportunity to apply 3D printing to the design and fabrication of new ceramic membranes. Therefore, we propose to 3D print a multi-porosity ceramic membrane for process intensification. In this research, design, simulation, fabrication and characterization of the new ceramic membranes will be carried out.
