Form Active Structures. 02

Different stiffness values (S= 125 to 4000) for the springs are tested. Following the selection of the solution with S=1000, the geometry is adjusted by shifting one corner to break the symmetry and generate large spans.

Computational Surface Generation

 
Computational surface generation through the GH interface
f (x) = y * sin (z * x)
This research aims to investigate the generative process of components that belong to a double-curved computational surface, derived through the mathematical curve function f (x) = y* sin (z*x°) applied in two distinct directions. The surface parameters are able to vary and create time-based differentiated formal outputs in a digital parametric system. The parametric system is established through the set of rules and defined relations based on the McNeel Rhinocereos / Grasshopper platform. Geometry optimization becomes the integral part of the design process when the parametric model shifts into the architectural scale. Please visit: http://vimeo.com/user2972824 to watch the animation.
