Final Colloquium – Tom Godthelp

May 23 @ 14:00 - 16:00

Timber Reciprocal Frame Structures

Reciprocal Frame (RF) structures are feasible by means of circulating compression  or  tension  interactions  between  their  constituent  members.  This  relation  indicates  that beam depths and connections correlate to an RFs’ structural geometry. Till date, a combination of RF form  finding  that  regards  both  beam  depths  and  structural  design  of  connections  has  not  yet  been developed. Although researchers developed computational form finding methods to create geometrical solutions and described the global structural design, computational complexity may have prevented a direct inclusion of detailing in the overall RF design. This research presents a new RF form finding method that includes the structural design of beam dimensions and detailing. The study covers the complete design to production process and enables to build a new type of timber structures.
