title Fibre composite systems: stress as growth-promoting agent
source Proceedings of the 15th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / Hong Kong 7-10 April 2010, pp. 575-584
summary The main intention of this paper is to propose a theoretical framework for an integrated design methodology which incorporates natural morhogenetic principles for the realisation of fibre composite structures. Stress, in these processes, becomes the driving force of shape modification and fibre articulation, while the material thresholds become a driver of generative evolution. The inferences and results of such an approach will be looked into using a case study of a composite monocoque shell bridge design.
