Design for Printability and Structural Integrity of 3D-Printed Concrete Structures

The process of designing concrete structures using 3D printing technology requires predicting whether a structure will collapse during printing and avoiding failure either by adapting the toolpath or changing the overall shape of the structure.

The goal of this project is to develop a system to aid professionals in the design of structures for 3D printing in concrete, which is comprised of three components: (i) a generator of solutions; (ii) a simulator of the structural behavior during printing; and (iii) an optimizer of the overall shape and toolpath.
