Project description

Rheological properties are significant for the quality of 3D-printed concrete structures. They highly depend on mix design and processing, currently leaving limited options to actively modify concrete properties during or after casting. To produce a framework for a more advanced active control of concrete properties, this project will investigate active rheology and stiffening control applied to magneto-rheological cementitious 3DP-materials explicitly.
