Recent advances in metal additive manufacturing (AM) are offering great opportunities but also facing various challenges for this new technology to be applied in the construction industry.
The talk gives an introduction to the current AM technologies that are widely recognised by engineers to be suitable for construction and discusses the associated technical challenges, such as manufacturing standardisation, quality control, and economical and environmental impacts.
The talk is developed based on a comprehensive review of previous studies on this topic, including recent research projects at the University of Bath, carried out in collaboration with European and Asian partners.
The aim of the talk is to inspire innovative ideas and promoting multidisciplinary collaborations on this new-born topic in the field of construction industry.
Dr Jie Wang MIStructE and Lecturer of Structural Engineering Design in the Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering at University of Bath
