Mechanical Response of Dimensionally Complicated Structures in Integrated Design


Ing. Ladislav Svoboda, PhD., Ing. Jan Novák, PhD., Ing. arch. Lukáš Kurilla, Ing. arch. Marek Růžička, Ing. arch. Miloš Florián, PhD., Ing. arch. Ondřej Otýpka, MgA. Federico Díaz

Paper presents pilot results of newly developed methods and program tools for parametric design of dimensionally complicated structures. Instead of the development of a monolithic software solution, emphasis is laid upon the integration of existing architectural and structural programs, which offer ample opportunities for enhancement thanks to the openness of the source code and/or scripting. The results of three studies, gained with the help of the Rhinoceros® design software as well as the OOFEM program have proven that the developed methods and program tools make it possible to achieve higher flexibility and speed in architectural design thus creating more attractive and imposing structures. Available in Czech language only.
