Graphic statics: from basics to computational tools - part 2 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 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:
  • 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
Who should view:
  • 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

We recommend viewing the first webinar in this series beforehand: Graphic statics: structural design and analysis through geometry. You can purchase this as a single on-demand webinar, or purchase the series of five webinars and receive a series discount.

Speakers

Juney Lee 
is a lecturer and postdoctoral researcher at the Block Research Group of ETH Zurich. He has Master of Architecture and Master of Structural Engineering degrees from MIT, and a Bachelor of Arts degree from UC Berkeley. His research interests include graphic statics, computational geometry, algorithmic design and geometry-based structural form-finding methods and sustainable materials and construction.

Lluis Enrique Monzo graduated with a diploma in architecture from the Polytechnic University of Catalonia and obtained his Master’s degree in Architecture from the Architectural Association School of Architecture. Lluis' research explores the Nested Geometries, the Cast-on-Cast fabrication system and their potential to be applied as a post-tension structural system of non-standard, pre-cast concrete panels for the building of free-form structural surfaces.
