Current design methods for oblique manifolds were first presented in the paper of London et al. in 1968. This method presents a single equation to shape the dividing manifold of several manifold configurations. However, current literature shows a potential to improve the current design method by implementing advanced techniques. This paper aims...

The Flying V is a flying wing aircraft consisting of two pressurised passenger cabins placed in a V shape. Its longitudinal and lateral control is ensured via elevons and split flaps on the outboard wing, and rudders on the tip-mounted winglets. The goal of this study is to devise a design for the outboard wing of the Flying V through a...

The drive for the cost reduction of floating offshore wind turbine (FOWT) systems to the levels of fixed bottom foundation turbine systems can be achieved with creative design and analysis techniques of the platform with free-form curves to save numerical simulation time and minimize the mass of steel (cost of steel) required for design. This...

Differentiable ray-tracing is an exciting new development in computer graphics to approach all sorts of 3D scene design problems by obtaining gradients of renders produced by ray-tracing with respect to parameters that define the scene. These gradients can then be incorporated in a gradient-descent type optimization pipeline.<br/><br/>One such...

In current optimization methods for free-form shells, the shape and topology are usually optimized separately. These methods are based on the assumption that the shape and topology of a shell influence each other only slightly, but this is not always correct. Moreover, different parameterization models are used in the shape optimization and...

Rapid developments of both new (digital) fabrication techniques and innovative software facilitate the possibility to design, check and construct objects with great complexity and uniqueness without a large price tag. After new techniques slowly entered the field of architecture, the next step is to apply them in civil engineering to design load...

Kilimatos, Andreas (author)
Shell structures appear quite often in our daily life. From aircraft fuselages to storage silos and boat hulls, these structures are employed for their structural efficiency and the aesthetics they provide. They are characterised by a small thickness in comparison to their other dimensions and by curvature in their unstressed state. Despite...

Knaack, U. (author), Mohsen, Alamir (author)
The radical change in architectural design transcends the individuality of design towards multivarious individuation. The immersion of parametric diagrams in the representation of architectural objects leads into a process that could be grasped and manipulated with a high degree of efficiency. Computational advanced design techniques are...

Shell structures achieve stability through double curvature, which brings about construction challenges. This paper presents a strategy to design and assemble a panelized shell with a bi-stable mechanism aiming to make the assembly process more efficient. The developed prototype has two states of flat and three-dimensional stable configuration....

Timber construction has a promising future in the face of global sustainable development challenges. Using timber as the main structural material, the carbon footprint of a building is strongly reduced since the carbon will be stored for as long as the building stands or the timber is used. <br/><br/>An integrated structural concept was...

This research paper is a TU Delft Master’s thesis for graduation track in the field of Building Technology. Its main theme, digital manufacturing of reinforced concrete structures, has already been studied/researched by many other enthusiasts; but they adopted approaches mainly based on the digital production of formworks or 3D printing of...

The redevelopment of the Post Rotterdam building and, in particular, the design proposal of the vertical foyer initiated this research project. The foyer has a special design and as a result, a special analysis method has to be used. The desired material is steel, consequently stiffened steel shell structure was deemed the most appropriate...

Free-form solar cells expand solar power beyond traditional rectangular geometries. With the flexibility of being installed on objects of daily use, they allow making better use of available space and are expected to bring in new possibilities of generating solar power in the coming future. In addition, their customizable shape can add to the...

Free-form solar cells are cells of unconventional shapes (e.g. hexagonal, leaf-shaped etc). Their flexible shape adds to the aesthetics of the surroundings as well as allows to place them over objects where conventional solar cells might not fit. Evidently, these cells need to be efficient as well, and one of the important factors that...

The new Transfer Hall in Arnhem is one of the key projects to prepare the Dutch railways for the increased future demands for capacity. UNStudio developed a master plan in 1996 for the station area of which the completion of the Transfer Hall in 2015 will be a final milestone. The Transfer Hall is a merging point of passengers, commercial and...

Free-form transparent wide-span spatial structures which have being constructed so far, are based on the concept of three sets of components, the structural components, usually steel elements to ensure both compressive and tensional capacity; the glass cladding elements for expressing transparency; and thirdly an in between set for connecting...

In an earlier article (CPI issue of August 2011 [1]) a method was presented for producing precast curved panels with a thickness of a few centimeters using the 'flexible mould method'. This method is the central theme in the PhD study of the first author on the realization of freeform architecture in concrete. The concrete panels manufactured...

The continuous development of the building envelope over the past hundred years can be exemplified by a few ground-breaking inventions. Firstly, the separation of primary and secondary structure during the beginning of the 20th century; by implementing a curtain wall façade to physically separate the façade from the building. This was followed...
