Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
The main objective of this major qualifying project was to develop a pavilion structure for the WPI campus that provided an outdoor, sheltered space, using the techniques of additive manufacturing and concrete 3D printing. This was achieved through researching precedent studies, drawing inspiration from geometric origami, and making use of techniques other studies used in order to create the structure utilizing the gantry style printer specific to WPI. A printable concrete mix design was developed specific to this project, instructions on 3D printing were developed, structural analysis for the pavilion was conducted, and hypothetical heating, ventilation, and air conditioning calculations were conducted for the space.
