Tailoring the Rheological Behavior of 3-D Printing Concrete

We are sorry, this position has been filled.

The student will be involved in an NSF-supported project on the topic of 3D concrete printing. The primary objective of the summer research project will be to perform rheological characterization of fresh cement paste systems with different mix designs, then 3D print to evaluate performance. Main tasks will include working alongside a PhD student on sample preparation, rheological testing, data analysis, and development of the 3D printing setup. Most activities will take place in the Carleton Strength of Materials Lab so all necessary certification must be obtained.
