Participation in International Research Projects

G. Olmi is a member of the Project Board of the A_MADAM Project (European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No. 734455).

The main goal of A_MADAM is to contribute to the increase of the application of Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies, by the development of design rules, to enhance the mechanical and fatigue properties of AM processed components. In particular, the study is focused on selective laser sintering (SLS). For further details, see https://www.mfkv.kg.ac.rs/a_madam/

The project involves the Faculty of Mechanical and Civil Engineering in Kraljevo (University of Kragujevac, Serbia), the Department of Industrial Engineering (DIN) (University of Bologna, Italy), Studio Pedrini S.r.l (Bologna, Italy), Topomatika d.o.o. (Zagreb, Croatia) and Plamingo d.o.o. (Gračanica, Bosnia and Herzegovina).

In the framework of the project, G. Olmi is in charge of Design of Experiment (DOE) assisted extensive experimental campaigns, to assess the impact on fatigue of several factors, such as the build orientation, machining, post-manufacture heat and surface treatments.
