Innovative structural forms of concrete structures using fabric formwork

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Fabric formwork is a novel method for casting unconventional concrete forms in textile sheets. It offers extraordinary possibilities for combining structural efficiency and architectural expression in the design of concrete structures. This paper discusses opportunities, challenges and solutions for application of fabric-formed concrete in practice, in terms of design, buildability and potential advantages of using innovative Fibre-Reinforced Polymer (FRP) materials as reinforcement.
