Lattice block structure panels, consisting of two truss plates and a truss core, produced by investment casting of the high-temperature titanium alloy Ti-64 (Ti-6Al-4V) and Ti-6242 (Ti-6Al-2Sn-4Zr-2Mo). These low-density panels exhibit excellent compressive stiffness, strength, ductility and energy absorption at both ambient and elevated temperature and can be used for energy-efficient aerospace transportation systems. More details can be found in the article by Qizhen Li, Edward, Y. Chen, Douglas, R. Bice, and David C. Dunand on page 939.
