To be eligible for a PhD scholarship in the field of concrete 3D printing with a requirement of a high distinction (HD) mark and an 8.5/10 above, along with proved publication or relevant industry experience, the following criteria typically apply: 

Academic Performance: You need to have consistently performed exceptionally well academically, preferably with a high distinction (HD) mark or an equivalent grade. This requirement demonstrates your ability to excel in research and academic pursuits. 

Research Experience: While not explicitly stated, having prior research experience in the field of concrete 3D printing or a closely related area would be highly beneficial. This experience could include working on research projects, internships, or relevant coursework projects. It helps demonstrate your familiarity with the research process and your ability to contribute to the field. 

Publication Record: A proved publication in a peer-reviewed journal or conference proceedings related to concrete 3D printing would strengthen your application. It showcases your research capabilities and demonstrates that your work has been recognized and accepted by the academic community. 

Relevant Industry Experience: If you don't have a publication, relevant industry experience can be an alternative requirement. This could include working in the concrete industry, preferably in a role involving 3D printing or relevant modeling skills. Industry experience demonstrates your practical knowledge and ability to apply theoretical concepts in real-world scenarios. 

Modeling Skills: Proficiency in modeling software is essential for research in concrete 3D printing. You should possess strong skills in computer-aided design (CAD) software and be familiar with 3D modeling techniques specifically relevant to concrete printing. This proficiency will enable you to create accurate models, analyze designs, and simulate printing processes effectively.
