ESR9- SIMULATING CONCRETE FORMWORK
AUTHOR: VASILY SITNIKOV

 

Concrete is the most used material in the world. This simple fact preconditions a countless variety of technologies that branch in all thinkable ways from the very basic concept of casting. Besides an ever extending catalog of mixture...

ESR09- SIMULATING CONCRETE FORMWORK

The PhD student will investigate and develop methods for the simulation of formwork in architecture. This will entail research into the transformation between states of fluidity and solidity germane to casting, the dynamic relationship between casting material, formwork and environmental factors, and the architectural possibilities and consequences.
