Pneumatic forming of hardened concrete for double curved shell structures

A  new labour-  and  cost-saving construction  method for  double  curved  shell  structures

Researchers of TU Wien have developed an alternative to expensive and complicated formwork for domed buildings: This revolutionary construction technology of TU Wien uses inflatable air cushions instead. This new method was implemented during the construction of the Koralmbahn in a test building for ÖBB Infrastructure.
