3D Printing Hydraulic facilities Dams Fluid machinery Turbines
The implantation of 3D printing in the civil engineering is supposed to start a revolution in the way to build structures. In recent years, buildings have been built through 3D printing technologies using concrete without reinforcement, or not even load bearing structures like bridges. However, it has not been tested yet in the field of hydraulic engineering. The main goal of this thesis, is to find applications of 3D printing technologies in this engineering field, and to determine whether technologies and materials used here are feasible solutions, both for functionality and profitability.
