Dynamic Behaviour of Additively Manufactured Structures & Materials

DYMAT 2022

26th Technical Meeting
12-14 September 2022
Freiburg, Germany


Dynamic behaviour of additively manufactured structures, meta-materials, and the constitutive properties of their base materials.

Behaviour under conditions of high-rate deformation

Additive manufacturing of parts that are used in situations where crashworthiness is important has increased significantly over the recent years.

In particular, 3D metal printing has become available to research institutions and is already used in select industries including aerospace and defense, while the automotive sector is currently exploring possibilities for application.

Yet, little is known about the behaviour of additively manufactured parts under conditions of high-rate deformation such as crash and impact.

The 2022 DYMAT workshop provides a forum for scientific exchange and social networking in this field of research.

Focus on processes, materials and structures

The workshop will focus on a number of topics relevant to the dynamic behaviour of additively manufactured parts:

  • metal, ceramic, and polymer manufacturing processes
  • material models for the underlying base materials
  • resultant behaviour of meta-materials or structures
  • experimental techniques required to investigate such materials
  • simulation approaches required to predict behaviour and interpret experiment findings


The Technical Meeting will be held in Freiburg. The university town is located in the Swiss-French-German border region between the Black Forest, the Rhine, and Alsace. Freiburg is known for it's good weather and warm temperatures. It is surrounded by Europe's largest white wine growing region.

The meeting will take place at the Fraunhofer Institute for High-Speed Dynamics, Ernst-Mach-Institut, EMI.
EMI is one of the leading research institutions focusing on dynamic processes in materials and structures. The institute features facilities for dynamic testing across several length-and time-scales as well as a comprehensive additive manufacturing laboratory.
