ACI Concrete Smart Brief TECHNOLOGY & TRENDS : Study: Can nails reinforce 3D-printed concrete?
Dr Mohammed Sonebi has collaborated with researchers in France on a new concept and stategy of reinforcement of 3D printing for construction. Their findings were published in Nailing of Layers: A Promising Way to Reinforce Concrete 3D Printing Structures.
The experiment consisted of using nails which were driven through several layers after being 3D printed. The goal of this experiment was to offer ductility, tensile and strength, whilst offering greater strength in between layers.
