3D printed porous media columns with fine control of column packing morphology.


In this paper we demonstrate, for the first time, the use of 3D printing (also known as additive manufacturing or rapid prototyping) to create porous media with precisely defined packing morphologies, directly from computer aided design (CAD) models. We used CAD to design perfectly ordered beds with octahedral beads (115 μm apothem) packed in a simple cubic… (More)
