Graphic statics: from basics to computational tools - part 3 of 5.

Graphic statics is a traditional visual analysis method used for centuries to analyse structures and design some of the most elegant and impressive buildings and monuments in human history.

In this session, our expert panel from Block Research Group will introduce computational implementation of graphic statics and interactive force-driven design explorations.

Reasons to attend:
  • Gain an understanding of computational implementation of graphic statics
  • Learn the basic principles of Algebraic Graph Statics (AGS)
  • Learn how to use computational graphic statics tools through examples
Who should attend:
  • Engineers with active roles in the conceptual design of structures, particularly shell structures, membrane structures, long span structures and trusses 
  • Conservation engineers assessing equilibrium and stability of masonry structures
  • Engineers looking to use graphic statics to design efficient, material-saving structures
  • Structural engineering students
Pre-requisites
