Concrete Wall Fabrication by Contour Crafting

Dooil Hwang, Behrokh Khoshnevis

The feasibility of CC along with its unique capabilities and key performance characteristics (speed, surface quality, material variety, possibility of embedding reinforcement, etc…) have been demonstrated in the construction of relatively large geometrical shapes and structural components using a variety of construction materials. Construction and testing of full-scale concrete wall sections has been the goal of our recent project which this article reports.
