Free form architecture with complex geometry brings along new challenges for manufacturers of building components. This paper describes the application of structural mechanics to predict the behaviour of an elastic mould surface, used as formwork for the manufacturing of double curved panels in precast concrete. Results are presented of...

The manufacturing of double-curved precast concrete elements is still expensive, due to the high costs and limited possibilities for repetitive use of the moulds or formwork. The goal of the research described in this paper is to develop a production method that overcomes these difficulties by enabling the mould to be reused many times and by...
