From indoor factories to outdoor building sites: influence of physical environmental constraints

Directors : N. Roussel, M. Bornert

During automated 3D printing of concrete structures, since the fresh
material is deposited and shaped without formworks, the protection of
these formworks against the environment before they are stripped or
removed  does not exist anymore. Outdoor, the material will be therefore
exposed critically to heat, humidity and wind, able to damage the final
printed element. How  transfer indoor technologies to outdoor real
construction site?
