  • Global optimization of freeform support structures
    Kulovec, Simon ; Kos, Leon, 1966- ; Duhovnik, Jože, 1948-
    The trends in current architectural design are leading towards structures with free and irregular forms. The connection between the design intent and the fabrication presents a challenge when ... creating a support structure that is geometrically viable and should possess certain aesthetics, fabricational, thermal and strength requirements. To ensure the contact of edges of neighborhood insulation panels along their thickness, their edges must be cut under different angles which cause the differences in vertex heights and further the differences of the positions of the inner metal sheets of the insulation panels. The main goal of the presented research is the development of the optimization procedure by which the minimal joint height differences will be achieved in all the joints, taking into account all free form surfaces of the individual architectural design. To compensate for the residual joint height differences the usage of spacers of different thicknesses is proposed. Quad-dominant meshes with conical properties require optimization of the vertex heights to align all beams at approximately minimal joint height differences. The paper considers global minimization of joint height differences for a sample of free form architectural design, meshed with quaddominant mesh with conical properties. The comparison of the joint height differences before and after the optimization shows the substantial improvement.
