3D-Printed Cement-Based Materials to Help Build Offshore Wind Energy Plants

Pollyanna Sidell - Associated Environmental Systems

cambridge-uni-blog-1Sharp Develop Technology to Blend Plant-Based Plastic and Waste Plastic from Scrapped Consumer Electronics This project is a continuation of the team's research on 3D-printing cement-based materials into bioinspired designs, such as ones that use structures mimicking the ability of an arthropod shell to withstand pressure.

Conventional concrete manufacturing methods also require a mold to shape the concrete into the desired structure, which adds to costs and limits design possibilities. 3D-printing would eliminate the expenses of this mold.
