Geometric Nonlinear Structures or Why it’s Good to be a Lightweight

Surrey Regional Group is holding the first Technical Meeting after the summer break on Monday 9 September 2019 at the University of Surrey, where Peter Debney will talk about geometrically nonlinear structures.
 
Traditional structures are linear, stiff, restricted, heavy, and inefficient; lightweight structures on the other hand, whether in fabric, cable, timber, or stone, are non-linear, long spanning, flexible, highly efficient, and environmentally friendly. When form follows force as well as function, the result is a structure that soars.
 
Spend an evening examining Olympic structures, shells, tensegrity, and beyond.
