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 show you how to use graphic statics to analyse frames and trusses, and use form and force diagrams to explore force-driven structural design.
Reasons to view:
Who should view:
- Learn how to analyse frames and trusses using graphic statics
- Learn how to use form and force diagrams to shape efficient structures
- Explore force-driven design possibilities by geometrically constraining force diagrams
- 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
