Problem Statement

4. OMID is going to reduce these problems in the construction sector:

 

  • Solid waste creation

  • Co2 emission

  • Fatal injury

  • Time

  • Cost

Objectives

     The majority of solid waste have created in the construction sector. 4.OMID construction product and system not only do not create waste but also, it would use biodegradable and biobased materials with the upcycling trait. 

 

Transporting and producing construction products are responsible for a big portion of Co2 emissions. 4.OMID is going to use Additive Manufacturing and new materials not only to produce the product onsite but also, to use less materials.

 

The construction industry is responsible for a big portion of fatal injury due to the use of heavy materials like concrete and steel. 4.OMID via using AM technology is going to produce lightweight, prefabricated and modular construction product which could reduce the fatal injury in the construction process.

 

4.OMID produce product onsite via using Additive Manufacturing. So, you not only could eliminate the time needed to transfer materials from the supply chain to the site but also, you could reduce the construction process by using the modular system. The dry joint makes the assembling process fast.

 

4.OMID not only is going to use fewer materials and reduce time but also like IKEA, it will make the construction process simple for construction workers. So, you do not need professional workers to build the building. This feature not only reduces the cost but also, is essential for rural areas.

 

To create circular waste-free construction could improve the quality of life for all species on earth.

Preliminary Literature Review

     Geometry has used for centuries in architectural forms and structures. Buckminster Fuller had shown us that using geometry also could lead us to material efficiency in construction. Since the geodesic dome and house built till now there have been several attempts to use that patterns, different details, and materials to create domes, houses, and other forms. However, there were fewer efforts to improve the patterns and those geometries. Even Though, geodesic dome and house have several benefits however, in my view:

  • The height to weight ratio should improve

  • To have vertical walls could improve the function of buildings

In addition to improving the geometric patterns:

  • We could also make the patterns modular

    • My attempt is to use two congruent right angle triangles to build the whole structure

  • Dis & reassemble possibility 

    • Using dry joints could lead us to create different forms with the same materials 

  • To build a structure process simple to build via simplicity in Geometry patterns

In this way, we could design more efficient and circular architectural forms and structures.

Methodology

     The primary research method for this study is applied, field, quantitative, experimental, and flexible.

 

I am going to conjoint Additive Manufacturing with Bio-Based materials and modular system to create the product. Then, via standard tests, we could improve product design and test different materials that are available now. 

 

To build the actual structure in the field to test is the next step. Via experimental method, we could improve the result and it could lead us to efficient material used in our product.

 

The aim is to launch a startup company to provide a circular product, structure systems, and businesses in the construction sector.

Methodology

     These are some reports to show the importance of creating a circular waste-free construction sector which has helped me in my research journey.
