Personal profile

Research profile

Rob Wolfs is an Assistant Professor in the Unit of Structural Engineering and Design in the Department of the Built Environment of Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). The research and teaching of Rob focuses on digital design and manufacturing strategies, with the aim to enhance the sustainability and productivity of the architecture, engineering and construction industry. Key topics concern the application of robotics in construction, with a focus on 3D concrete printing, and digital design technologies such as numerical modelling, machine learning and (structural) optimization.

Academic background

Rob Wolfs obtained his MSc in Structural Engineering and Design at the Department of the Built Environment of the TU/e in 2015. Following these studies, Rob performed a PhD research on 3D concrete printing at the same university. This research focused on experimental characterization of printed concrete and numerical (FEM) modeling to analyze structural behavior during 3D printing processes. Rob was closely involved in the design and development of the 3D concrete printer of the TU/e. In the final phase of his PhD research, Rob was a visiting research at IFSTTAR Laboratoire Navier where he adopted CFD modelling to control filament geometries in additive manufacturing processes. Rob obtained his PhD degree cum laude in September 2019 and now works as an Assistant Professor at TU/e.
