Abstract

This paper presents a research work to optimize the Additive Manufactured (AM) clay moulds for concrete casting utilizing the Design of Experiments (DOE). The objective of this approach is to understand the impacts of clay moulds’ fabrication parameters on the displacement of cast concrete artefacts. This will contribute to efficient and economical clay mould production without losing accuracy. We adopt a DOE approach to reveal insights into the influence of critical fabrication parameters on the displacement of the final concrete artefact and thus, suggest critical parameter settings to ensure that the lateral pressure exerted by concrete in the vertical build-up is sustained. We demonstrate experimental results for a case study: vertical columns of circular cross-sections.
