Abstract


The Kine-Mould is a development that makes it easier to manufacture building elements with complex geometry. Since June 2014 the team has been working on a range of solutions and prototypes. Various building materials have been investigated such as concrete, glass and plastic composites. In a joint effort of TU Delft and TU Eindhoven the following prototypes were designed and built:

  1. One for thermoplastic polymers;
  2. One for concrete elements;
  3. One for glass elements;
  4. Several for inflatable mould surfaces.

Students carried out a significant part of the work. Companies were involved in the manufacturing process of the prototypes and application of the results.
