A Missouri S&T research team led by Dr. Kamal Khayat, vice chancellor for research and innovation, has been awarded $1.4 million from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to develop an artificial intelligence program that will determine the best locally-available materials for 3D-printed concrete.

This technology will allow the Army Corps to more quickly 3D print concrete structures without relying on the delivery of large amounts of construction materials.
