Factors affecting the properties of composites made by 4D printing

3D printing is the process where layers of materials are deposited to make structures of complex geometries. 4D printing is a process that combines 3D printing with the application of some activating agent in order to change the shape of the manufactured part after the process, e.g. the flat structure will change its shape to take up the desired complicated shape such as “curved” or “S” shaped.

Biobased basalt composite bridge built in the Netherlands

Sustainable technologies and closed-cycle production are increasingly going beyond the bounds of theoretical possibilities and are getting into the sphere of actual use. Recyclable materials, zero waste technologies and low-energy processes are turning into real-life projects. The illustration is a bridge constructed with the use of sustainable materials
