Lassonde mechanical engineering masters student Diego de Moraes, who is completing his studies under supervision of Professor Alex Czekanski, won third place in Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering (CSME) Student Best Paper Competition during the 2018 CSME International Congress, which took place May 27 to 30, at Bergeron Centre for Engineering Excellence.
de Moraes’ project is on computational modeling of metal additive manufacturing processes. The title of his paper is “The Influence of Powder Size and Packing Density on the Temperature Distribution in Selective Laser Melting.”
His paper was selected from more than 100 papers by other researchers. Only 10 of which were presented at the CSME Congress.
