How Concrete 3D Printing Saves Material and CO2

How Concrete 3D Printing Saves Material and CO2

Concrete is the most widely used building material in the world. It can be used in many ways, can be produced locally and is very durable. Its environmental performance, on the other hand, is the subject of critical debate. In particular, the production of the integral concrete component cement emits a lot of CO2.

3D Printed Shape Memory Alloy with Superior Superelasticity

3D Printed Shape Memory Alloy with Superior Superelasticity

Laser powder bed fusion, a 3D-printing technique, offers potential in the manufacturing industry, particularly when fabricating nickel-titanium shape memory alloys with complex geometries. Although this manufacturing technique is attractive for applications in the biomedical and aerospace fields, it has rarely showcased the superelasticity required for specific applications using nickel-titanium shape memory alloys.
