Paper online: 3D Printable Geomaterials (Géotechnique)

D. HANAOR, Y. GAN, M. REVAY, D. AIREY and I. EINAV. 3D Printable Geomaterials. Géotechnique, in press. DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.1680/jgeot.15.P.034 Abstract: One of the many attributes of three-dimensional (3D) printing is the ability to produce particles with independent control of morphology and material properties, parameters that are inexorably entwined in naturally occurring geomaterials. In this paper the 3D printing of […]
