The research results on the project "Adaptive Reinforcement of Geometrically Complex Cementitious Moulded Structures", funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), were published online in mid-February 2022. The English-language recordings summarise the results of the symposium held in November 2021 on the topic "Vision and Strategy for Reinforcing Additiveley Manufactured Concrete Structures". Prof. Dr. Asko Fromm from the Architecture programme of the Faculty of Architecture and Design at Hocschule Wismar, University of Applied Sciences, had organised the event together with Prof. Dr. Viktor Mechtcherine from the Institute of Building Materials at TU Dresden, University of Technology, in Dresden.
The DFG-funded research project will run from 2017 to 2022 and a scientific network consisting of architects, civil engineers, computer scientists and materials scientists has been formed. The goal is to increase the design freedom using cement materials in a resource-saving way in continuous digital process chains. The material cement, which is important for architecture, has many positive properties as well as weaknesses, for example in the transmission of tensile forces. Without reinforcement, the usability of the material has been significantly limited up to now. During the symposium, various approaches, methods and materials were presented, as well as solutions for completely dispensing with reinforcement.
