The First Concrete 3D Printed Revetment Wall, For River Repair & Revetment Projects


Have a look at the first 3D Printed Revetment Wall, that is installed along the Shanghai-Jiangsu Port in China. Learn how a 3D Concrete printer can provide a new solution for river repair and revetment projects. This 3D Printed revetment wall is a permanent protective structure designed to prevent impact from the waterway on the soft shoreline, designed to maintain the slope or to protect it from erosion.

With the rising water level in China, the pressure in lower situated land is higher to develop fast and sustainable solutions that help to protect the land vanishing into the river or sea.

Even a small increase can have devastating effects on coastal habitats farther inland, it can cause destructive erosion, wetland flooding, aquifer, and agricultural soil contamination and lost habitat for fish, birds, trees and plants, etc.


This ecologically developed riverbank shoreline is integrally formed and functions of retaining the earth and to defend the shoreline from impact by the waves and the strong current, and collapsing under the pressure of the rising water level, caused by co-acting forces, such as water erosion, corrosion, earth pressure, and underwater osmotic pressure.
