Numerical Investigation of Capabilities for Dynamic Self-Shading through Shape Changing Building Surface Tiles
A concept for a smart material morphing building surface tile that would utilise adaptive surface wrinkle patterns to improve solar interaction is explored. The effect of the wrinkle patterns is numerically investigated in the context of an objective to reduce solar irradiance entering buildings by changing the shape of the surface (i.e. surface topography) so that the façade is self-shading, thereby reducing energy costs of the building for temperature control.
