title Concrete Form[ing]work:Designing and Simulating Parametrically-Patterned Fabric Formwork for Cast Concrete
source Sousa, JP, Xavier, JP and Castro Henriques, G (eds.), Architecture in the Age of the 4th Industrial Revolution - Proceedings of the 37th eCAADe and 23rd SIGraDi Conference - Volume 2, University of Porto, Porto, Portugal, 11-13 September 2019, pp. 759-768
summary Concrete is one of the most widely used construction materials globally, yet its industrial fabrication techniques continue to default to planar formwork and uniform cross sections for the sake of simplicity and predictability. /Concrete Form[ing]work/ evaluates state-of-the-art fabric formwork research and explores the industry's reticence to integrate these novel design approaches. This research has identified two challenges that have significantly hindered the adoption of fabric formwork in architectural design: complex tailoring of parametrically designed forms and the lack of accurate simulation tools for flexible formwork. /Concrete Form[ing]work/ develops methods to address both of these issues, providing an alternative approach to more simply tailor fabric forms and accurately simulate these patterns' response to casting. In doing so, this research has the potential to fundamentally change and streamline how the field of flexible formwork is approached and integrated within architectural design. This paper will present the process of parametrically tailoring non-developable surfaces from single sheets and document the advancement of these simulation tools.
