This thesis aims to exploit active bending as an approach to create complex curved geometries, which are structurally self-supporting systems. The simplicity of creating complex curved geometries from initially planar elements is the leading motivator for this research. The central research question is: ‘How can double curvature be exploited in...

An arch dam is a curved surface structure that is designed to resist water pressure at the convex side. An arch dam is usually constructed in a narrow V-shape valley with strong rock foundations. Through the arched shape the water pressure is distributed from the upstream face of the dam to the abutment edges of the dam which are embedded in the...

A composite textile reinforced concrete (TRC) material is developed to overcome the difficulties of constructing double-curved freeform structures. This is possible by shear-deformation of the woven reinforcement. It affects the direction of reinforcement and thickness, resulting in variable orthotropic properties over the surface. The research...
