Instead of researching on generic seismic design solutions, I tried to look for more innovative solutions which is also intrigued by my personal fascination of form finding and special structure systems. My objection was to challenge the extreme of brick masonry and try to find a new way of construction with bricks for seismic areas. Instead of...

This master thesis presents research into buckling of thin hyperboloid shells structures. This type of structure is typically applied as the large cooling towers at coal fired electricity plants. However, modelling cooling towers is not the objective of this research. The objective of this research is to understand the buckling behaviour of...

Mirtsopoulos, I. (author)
Ever since the idea of truss structures was conceived and later were expanded into three dimensional structures forming space frames, jointing has been a challenge. The evolution of jointing systems includes three main methods: connection with a node, connection with a prefabricated unit and connection without a node (e.g. welding). Delving more...

This master thesis involves the design of a roof for a basketball arena, which has a capacity of 20,000 spectators and it needs to be designed as a concrete shell structure. The size of the stadium is large enough to demand a long spanned shell structure. This thesis attempts to find an elegant solution to this problem, which combines aesthetic...

A new form-finding method is developed for system combining arches, membranes, cables, ties and struts. First the whole mathematical theory is elaborated. After that, digital tools are created in the Grasshopper for Rhino environment. A design application is then elaborated to verify their efficacy. Non linear FEM analysis are used to simulate...

This thesis presents a parametric design tool for structural analysis of shallow shells. The tool was developed with Rhino and Grasshopper. Also VB (Visual Basic) scripting was used to create new components in the Grasshopper interface. The techniques and methods involved for the development of the tool consists mainly of classic analytical and...

The Finite Element Method is used in many computer programs to analyse the mechanical behaviour of shell structures. Although this method provides good quantitative insight into the mechanical behaviour of shell structures, it provides little qualitative insight. This master graduation thesis is aimed at expanding Finite Element Analysis (FEA)...

The research is based on the Maltese archipelago, a collection of islands with no other building material available apart from Globigerina limestone. Importing materials before the industrial revolution was an impractical endeavour which led for the inhabitants of the island to learn and master ways how stone can be used in a variety of ways....

Smidt, D.M. (author)
This research is twofold. Firstly it treats the complexity of design using a computational intelligent method to achieve, with regard to a limited set of goals, high performing designs. Secondly, an architectural and structural challenge to conceptually design a freeform roof framework, which integrates structural rigidity and non-standard...

Tensegrity corresponds to a structural principle consisting of strut and tie elements forming a 3D ensemble. The amazing, impressive and unusual character of tensegrities leads to the wondering of structural and functional performance of tensegrity. This results in interest concerning possibilities of applying tensegrity as load carrying...

The thesis presents a parametric design tool for plate structural analysis. The goal of the thesis is to establish a real-time visualized program for structural calculation and to make it parameterized. The tool is based on a visualized drawing program Rhino with Grasshopper plug-in to generate the parametric environment for the plate structural...

Subject of this thesis is the development of a lightweight, low-cost and eco-friendly composite structural module, out of a self reinforced Polypropylene (srPP) skin and a core of Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) bottles. The module can be easily mass-produced, transported, assembled and disassembled, and able to be fully recycled after the end...
