SCRIM: An innovative method for 3-D concrete printing

11.09.2018 | Tech Xplore | www.techxplore.com

Researchers at the Centre for Information Technology and Architecture (CITA) of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and at the Danish Technological Institute have developed a new hybrid construction concept called “Sparse Concrete Reinforcement In Meshworks” (SCRIM).

In the SCRIM concept, meshes are arranged into 3-D target geometries, which can also include vertical areas. Concrete is then selectively deposited into the mesh, which acts as a reinforcement element as well as a stay-in-place formwork.

The researchers found that in addition to reducing restrictions in build orientation and reinforcement, their technique enables subsequent processes such as element addition and embellishment. SCRIM thus allows for greater freedom in designing targets, supporting intricate geometries and placing material selectively to achieve design aims.
