Develop a data-driven design methodology for mechanical components made of metamaterials and produced by additive manufacturing
Design, 2-scale optimisation and process optimisation of shock-absorption devices
Bi-stable metamaterials to improve shock-absorption devices.
Regularly organised lattice metamaterials to improve dissipative absorbers.

To this end, current multiscale
Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) methodologies have to be
surpassed: the recent emergence of data-driven approaches in computational
mechanics offers a change of paradigm, which could make ICME approaches
realistic for process and 2-scale stochastic optimisation to be conducted through
the use of surrogate models
