Discuss Can Additive Manufacturing technology be used to fabricate FRP RC structural elements

Research is undergoing into additive manufacturing (also known as 3D-printing) which has been used to manufacture concrete based structural elements in buildings. This dissertation paper will discuss the feasibility of manufacturing reinforced concrete using 3D-printers, but rather to conventional steel reinforcement, FRP (fibre reinforced polymers) will be used which can also be manufactured simultaneous to the pouring of concrete. This allows full automation of construction of reinforced concrete elements.
