Mishra, V.

Vibhas Mishra is a Researcher in the Department of Sustainable Design Engineering (SDE), the section of Materials and Manufacturing in the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering (IO).

Academic Background

Vibhas Mishra obtained his B.Tech in Mechanical Engineering from IIT(BHU)-Varanasi, India in 2012. After working for 3 years in the automotive industry, he came to TU Delft in 2015 for his higher education. He graduated with M.Sc. in Aerospace Engineering from TU Delft in 2017. In 2018, he started his Ph.D. in Precision and Microsystems Engineering (PME) group in 3ME in TU Delft. The research focus was on Computational Design for large-scale metal Additive Manufacturing (AM) processes using the Topology Optimization method. In 2023, he continues his research in computational design for AM processes in Industrial Design (IO) Engineering at TU Delft.

For his M.Sc. thesis, Vibhas investigated the effects of manufacturing defects on the mechanical performance of composite panels with continuous steered fibers.
He predicted the influence of manufacturing defects on the composite plate stiffness and buckling load.

Vibhas became part of the AiM2XL program in 2018. The program was focused on establishing the relationship between the design, process, and mechanical properties for large-scale metal Additive Manufacturing namely Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM). Vibhas's research focus was on using this relationship to generate high-performance computational designs using Topology Optimization (TO) for WAAM.
