3D-printable fibre-reinforced low-carbon concrete for additive construction

   Department of Civil and Structural Engineering

About the Project

3D concrete printing (3DCP) can allow freeform construction without the use of expensive formwork, but the current progress is limited by the range of printable concretes and reinforcing methods. The amount of binder in a typical 3D-printable concrete mixture is more than 40% higher than that in conventional concrete. This limits the material’s environmental sustainability of the current 3DCP technology since most of the binder is made of OPC. Conventional steel reinforcements are also difficult to be incorporated into 3DCP. This project aims to develop a 3D-printable fibre-reinforced low-carbon concrete to tackle both of the above-mentioned problems.
