Numerical Analysis of Steel Geodesic Dome under Seismic Excitations
The paper presents the response of two geodesic domes under seismic excitations, created by two different methods of subdividing spherical triangles (the original octahedron face), as proposed by Fuliński.
Tensegrity system dynamics based on finite element method
Gyroscopic Tensegrity Robots
Using principles of mechanics, a nonlinear dynamic model is presented to modulate the torque produced by the network of spatially distributed gyroscopes, and is used to identify elemental modules to override fundamental design principles of the innovative structural systems.
Two subdivision methods based on the regular octahedron for single- and double-layer spherical geodesic domes
The paper presents the topological–geometric analysis of a selected number of space frames configurations for geodesic domes which are generated from the regular octahedron. Two subdivision methods
An Adaptive Bioinspired Foot Mechanism Based on Tensegrity Structures.
The results show that the proposed adaptive bioinspired foot mechanism exhibits good stability in an unstructured environment and can mimic the adaptive locomotion characteristics of the human foot on complex terrain remarkably well.
Prestress in Nature and Technics
This research investigates how prestress can be used as a design tool for the creation of material efficient and well-functioning structures, and in early design stages contribute to sustainable, functional and beautiful architecture.
Tensegrity system dynamics with rigid bars and massive strings
A single matrix-second-order nonlinear differential equation to simulate the dynamics of tensegrity systems with rigid bars and massive strings is provided and the control variable is characterized as the force density in each string.
WOOD, CAD AND AI: Digital Modelling as Place of Convergence of Natural and Artificial Intelligent to Design Timber Architecture
The present chapter shows different ways to apply the contemporary principle of descriptive geometry in digital wood design research, in a multidisciplinary and contaminated learning environment.
