Mapping of Force: A Process of Parametric Design from the Prototype Mechanical Mechanism to the Structural Form of a Woven HYPAR Shell
Architecture Design and Research Institute, South China University of Technology, Guangzhou, 510640, China
From a new perspective of structural engineering, with the integration of the 1st and 3rd principal stress distribution of HYPAR shell structure into the selection of texture variation zone, this paper analyzes and demonstrates the key questions of how to establish the association between the force-flow, the texture direction and the form parameters; how to develop a dynamic, performance-optimized and adaptive iteration model of HYPAR shell structural form by setting and adjusting structurally sensitive parameters; and how to realize the process of parametric design from the mechanical mechanism of the prototype to the structural form of the woven HYPAR shell.
