IIT Guwahati Innovators Builds 3D Print Security Post Using Industrial Waste
The innovators of IIT Guwahati have built a 3D Print Security Post by using some industrial waste. IIT Guwahati is working actively in building a sustainable future.
A team from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati reported on February 23 that they had built a 3D-printed security post using a unique M40-grade sustainable concrete that contained industrial wastes, fibers, and chemical admixtures.
According to a news release from IIT Guwahati, the technology was developed by the startup Stratify 3D Pvt. Ltd., which was started by Dodda Srinivas, Dhrutiman Dey, and Akshay Sahu.
It is claimed that the security post is sustainable in terms of building methods and material make-up because it was created in partnership with the Institute Infrastructure, Planning and Management team.
The 85-square-foot carpet area and 56 modules make up the 3D Security post.
Dr. Biranchi Panda, an assistant professor in the mechanical department at IIT Guwahati, said of the 3D-printed Security Post, “With this project, we explored the aesthetic potential of digital building technologies while using sustainable construction materials.
The construction of the security post’s material and surface texture shows off the concrete printing technology’s amazing aesthetic potential.
According to IIT Guwahati, the on-site construction of this 3D-printed security post and a technology demonstration took place during the Y20 Inception Meet.
It is claimed that the security post is sustainable in terms of building methods and material make-up because it was created in partnership with the Institute Infrastructure, Planning, and Management team.
The 85-square-foot carpet area and 56 modules make up the 3D Security post. The group successfully printed unique tetrahedron modules with cantilevered features of 22° and embossed features of up to 40 mm for the first time.
A unique sustainable concrete mix design (patent pending) that satisfies the stringent rheological and mechanical quality requirements of a 3D-printed structure was created in order to print the overhanging features.
The modules were manufactured in 15 hours on an automated concrete 3D printer before being put together on-site with a unique adhesive.
