Advances in Reinforcement, Anchoring, and Construction Practices for Additive Construction using Cementitious Materials

Guest Editors: Eric Kreiger, Liberato Ferrara

Original papers are invited for a special joint issue of the ACI Materials Journal and ACI Structural Journal on Advances in Reinforcement, Anchoring, and Construction Practices for Additive Construction using Cementitious Materials, which encompasses additive construction (construction 3D printing) technologies, reinforcing, and anchoring of cementitious composite elements constructed using additive manufacturing technologies, including successive layer deposition by extrusion based 3D printing or binder jetting processes. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the use of fiber reinforcement to improve material properties; material testing for QA/QC of structures; structural evaluation through modelling and testing, rheology and shape stability of printable materials; the print stability of elements; the evaluation of passive or active reinforcement strategies in structural elements; reinforcement- or anchor-concrete bond performance; structural performance the effect of interfaces on structural performance; performance of reinforced concrete AC elements on strength and durability; the strengthening of layer interfaces; the integration of MEP (Mechanical, electrical, and plumbing); novel reinforcing anchoring techniques; geometric constraints for incorporating reinforcement; performance of element joints and connections.
