The aim of this research is to characterise the collapse and failure mechanisms of lattice structures under quasi-static and dynamic loading conditions and to determine the mechanical properties and energy-absorbing characteristics of lattice structures with different relative densities and geometric conditons. Lattice structures based on two simple architectures were manufactured from 316L stainless steel using Selective Laser Melting (SLM). The compressive properties of structures based on a body centred cubic (BCC) and a similar structure with vertical pillars (BCC-Z) were literally investigated at quasi-static rates of strain.
