Modular grid-based design-concept for fibre reinforced composite shells

Onderzoeksoutput: Conference paper


When designing a modular system, two main aspects need to be considered: the aspect of one building stone and the aspect of the overall structure. Both will be studied here in function of geometry, mechanical behaviour and historical background (architectural design, engineering science).
The state-of-the-art of design principles, used in architectural designs over the latest decades, will provide the basis knowledge for the generation of a new kind of modular constructions. Combining both the artistic point of view (aesthetics) and the engineering point of view (calculations, FEM), a new design-concept will be generated: a system with modular hyperbolic paraboloid building stones, connected to one another through hinged connections.
