Abstract

A new type of interpenetrating phase composite (IPC) is introduced in this work. The composite has a reinforcement phase designed mathematically based on Schwartz Primitive (P) triply periodic minimal surfaces (TPMS). The P-TPMS based IPC was fabricated using the technique of Polyjet 3D printing. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) was used to assess the quality of printing. Periodicity, aging, and anisotropy effects on the mechanical properties were investigated. The experimental results obtained showed that at least two unit cells are required to obtain the effective mechanical properties. The samples proved to be very sensitive to aging effect and printing direction.
