InFoamed Matter Robotic production and assembly of foam-injected structures

Article:

Project InFoamed Matter works with foam and explores the internal logic of thematerial and develops a construction system based on fluidity and expansion. Thebasic unit of the system consists of two elements, that continuously exchange theirroles in the construction process - the frame (controlling element made of paperor, in later development, from glass or carbon fiber cured in epoxy resin) and theexpander (filling element consisting of 2k polyurethane foam). The expander fillsup voids within the frame. While initially only the frame plays crucial structuralrole within a system, the expander being a filling element, eventually thehardening process switches the roles, hardened expander being the structuralcore and the frame being a form-defining tool. In later development, fiber framecreates a composite together with hardened expander, being able to resist bothtension and compression forces. Project further proposes computational model,which generates positions and orientations for placing further components aswell as a robotic fiber laying, assembly and injection system, which leads to novelautomated construction system based on material behavior.
