Optimal Material Selection for 3D Printing Solutions
Centre for advanced construction materials (CACM) is established to provide product based solutions for advanced building materials and digital construction. The centre provides consultation to the construction and cement industries in the area of concrete technology and sustainability
Concrete 3D Printing
Concrete 3D printing and autonomous construction using advanced building materials such as Limestone calcined clay cement and modern admixtures such as Graphino for both Modular and on-site construction.
Well established lab to conduct physical and chemical analysis of cement and binder systems. Muffle furnace for calcination of SCMs and development of new binders in lab-scale.
Design of concrete mixes and grouts for various grade and specialized application. The lab is specialized to formulate mixtures for self compacting, pumpable and geopolymer/alkali-activated concrete. The lab is equipped to measure fresh state properties including marsh cone, flow table, L-box, V-funnel, concrete penetrometer, concrete pump, and API filter press. The lab is also equipped with Compression testing machine of 1000 kN and 100 kN with flexural attachment. The lab is also having facilities to test fine and coarse aggregates.
