MARCH 4, 2022 — Researchers from the Margie and Bill Klesse College of Engineering and Integrated Design at UTSA are advancing work on a three-year, $659,970 grant from the U.S. Department of Defense’s Army Research Office to improve the military’s capacity to produce parts for critical machinery including aircraft. The researchers will focus on increasing the reliability of the additive manufacturing (AM) or metal 3D-printing process.

The research team includes David Restrepo , assistant professor in the UTSA Department of Mechanical Engineering; Harry Millwater , the department’s Samuel G. Dawson Endowed Professor; and Arturo Montoya , associate professor of mechanical engineering and civil and environmental engineering. They have been working on new computational designs that could lead to a more reliable additive-manufactured product.
