Project B01

Biologically Inspired Load-Adapted 3D Textile Reinforcement Structures

Project B01 thematically focuses on the design and modeling of load-adapted and profiled textile reinforcement structures with spatial branched topologies based on sophisticated development principles from the botanical evolution. Therefore, the scientific findings supposed to be used to elaborate modularly built and tool-independent technological concepts as well as to realize and validate the robot-supported manufacturing facility. The objective of this research project concentrates on the realization of spatial branched 3D preform topologies for a resource-saving and material minimized carbon-reinforced concrete construction, where the textile and widely spread 3D reinforcement topologies are finally processed by a generative, concrete-based 3D printing technology.
