Interactive Equilibrium Modelling. A new approach to the computer- aided exploration of structures in architecture

Lorenz Selim Lachauer
2015 Stahlbau  
The aim is to develop a structural design methodology which combines principles of static equilibrium with computer-aided design concepts.  ...  For this purpose, an interactive modelling approach is described, enabling the designer to iteratively bring together design idea and efficient structural behaviour.  ...  Furthermore, the new solving technique for form-finding problems with boundary conditions establishes the conceptual basis for a new computer-aided structural design tool.  ...
