Concrete Form[ing]work: Designing and Simulating Parametrically-Patterned Fabric Formwork for Cast Concrete

Scherer, Annie Locke;

:

Concrete is one of the most widely used construction materials globally, yet itsindustrial fabrication techniques continue to default to planar formwork anduniform cross sections for the sake of simplicity and predictability. /ConcreteForm[ing]work/ evaluates state-of-the-art fabric formwork research and exploresthe industry's reticence to integrate these novel design approaches. This researchhas identified two challenges that have significantly hindered the adoption offabric formwork in architectural design: complex tailoring of parametricallydesigned 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 andaccurately simulate these patterns' response to casting. In doing so, this researchhas the potential to fundamentally change and streamline how the field of flexibleformwork is approached and integrated within architectural design. This paperwill present the process of parametrically tailoring non-developable surfacesfrom single sheets and document the advancement of these simulation tools.
