For many years, engineering fields (e.g. manufacturing, robotics, mechanical) have won the ‘competition’ over civil and construction engineering in digitising their products and technologies. This project aims at the cutting-edge technology of 3D printing using timber-based biocomposites. Further to a digitised approach to fabricate structures, this project will use recycled timber, which is vastly found in Australia as residue. The project will benefit from a product-driven approach and the outcomes will be 3D-printed beams and columns, structurally tested, and evaluated for future application in large-scale. The applicant’s strong research track-record on timber composites is expected to significantly support the project.
