Dataset relating to "Cementitious materials data for aerial additive building manufacturing", phase one, 2017

Initial investigations into cement-based pastes and mortars suitable for 3D printing using drones.

This dataset contains test data relating to the Aerial Additive Building Manufacturing project's initial phase of investigations into cementitious pastes and mortar mixes. A series of mixes are formulated using CEM1, fly-ash, silica fume, polyol resin, limex, building sand and plasticiser in varying quantities and the mixes are tested in terms of mechanical strength, rheology, calorimetry, microstructure and creep. Data collected from the tests are stored in Microsoft Excel format. Mixes are also evaluated qualitatively (by inspection) and quantitatively (using power requirements) by the ease in which they pass through a small lightweight syringe-based automated deposition device (workability) and the buildability of the mixes (the ability to support their own weight and the weight of subsequently deposited layers) is assessed by inspection.
