This webinar is part 3 of a 5-part series on graphic statics.

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 speaker from Block Research Group will introduce computational implementation of graphic statics and interactive force-driven design explorations.
 

Reasons to watch:

  • 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

Intended for

  • 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 two webinars in this series beforehand. You can purchase these as single webinars, or purchase the series of five webinars and receive a series discount.
