Task 4.2: Mechanization in production of prefabricated building components and wall plastering for of mass housing
Task Leader(s): Dr. S. K. Panigrahi
- To upgrade/develop mechanized system for manufacturing of prefab components for mass housing
- To develop mechanised system for wall plaster in housing sector
Description of Task:
To bring speediness in mass housing, mechanization in development of building elements is really a challenging problem in India. The task aims to upgrade/develop mechanized system for manufacturing of prefab components for mass housing.
Plastering of walls in housing is a skilled and time consuming activity in construction process. At the same time, the available systems for plaster of wall suffers limitations like inadequate to be deployed in small length/height of wall, plastering at edges/corners/around openings, repeated fixing & alignment of the machine etc. To overcome the limitations, the present task proposes to develop a wall plaster machine taking account the drawbacks of available plastering machines in market.
- Mechanized system for manufacturing of prefab components in building industries for mass housing
- Semi-mechanised system for wall plaster in housing sector
