The ASME Ontario Section cordially invites all members to attend our Annual General Meeting on Tuesday, May 20, 2014. You will have an opportunity to meet the Executive Committee and the newly elected Section Officers for Fiscal Year 2015. In addition, to maintain a strong and active section, we will be seeking volunteers to serve on the Executive Committee for the term from July 2014 to June 2015. The success of the Ontario Section was evident through a large number of high quality events and activities throughout the year in serving and bringing together our members. During this year, the Ontario Section has conducted 7 of tours, 9 seminars and workshops, and 4 social events, plus two 10 weeks certified workshops, resulting in an increase in participants by 38% to 430 participants.

Keynote Presentation Summary: 

Despite its recent fame, we all know that 3D printing is still a laboratory procedure for niche engineering areas in rapid prototyping or vanguard applications in human organ and bone reconstruction where long term behavior and durability of the components are overshadowed by their immediate benefits. Typical 3D printed components are largely porous at their core to save printing material, construction time and weight. The outer layers appear solid for visual appearance and combined with hollow inner core, they form structures similar to that of honeycomb sandwich constructions.As composite material FEA elements allow for different material properties for each layer through the thickness of the component being modeled, we think it is within the grasp of our research to predict average material properties for distinct layers of 3D printed structures. Since 2003, colleagues and I in Tecnologico de Monterrey (Mexico City), have had worked on mathematical models specific for solving such porous material structures also found in 3D printed components. The developed method is effectively fast and efficient in its internal memory storage requirements.

We hope to see you there!
