3D Printing of Sulfur-based Martian Regolith concrete
Matthew previously lead a team of 32 students, faculty, and professionals to develop a way to 3D-print structures on Mars using planetary- and mission-based materials for NASA. Details on the team can be found here. Additional research on the material is still underway.
Lattice-Discrete Particle Model Analysis of Concretes
Current research is beginning on the simulation of cured traditional concrete and sulfur-based concretes using state-of-the-art multiscale-multiphysics analysis software and models.
Micromechanical Modeling of Fiber-Reinforced Concrete
Future research is planned for the micromechanical modeling of fiber-reinforcement for traditionally constructed and 3D printed cementitious materials.
Particle and Flow Simulation of 3D-Printed Concrete
Future research is planned for the simulation of material flow and curing of early state 3D-printed cementitious materials.
