Nature Inspired Form Finding Strategies Assessment using Genetic Algorithms
(IEEE Computer Society, 2015)
In this work, several topology generation procedures have been implemented on architectural surfaces combined with urban forms. Delaunay triangulation, Voronoi diagrams and the recently proposed [1, 2, 3] Voronax diagram, ...
A new methodology, extending the inversed catenary form finding method of Antonio Gaudi to generative space shells
This work aims to constitute an algorithmic framework for the automatic creation of compression only forms of generative space shells. In particular the case of concrete dams is investigated, where the loading is non-uniform ...
Minimizing the Torsional Response of RC Buildings Under Earthquake Loading
(South-East European Conference on Computational Mechanics, 2006)
