3d-print of optimized topology buried in UConn Engineering Time Capsule

A 3d-print of the optimal topology of a cantilever beam obtained with computational methods advanced in our group has been buried along other items in the Engineering Time Capsule recently buried in front of the new Engineering and Sciences Building as part of the centennial celebration of UConn’s School of Engineering (For more on this story, seeĀ Engineers Bury Time Capsule).

A copy of the 3d-print can be seen below (with supports still on).
