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 Thrust Network Analysis (TNA) and RhinoVAULT 2 - extensions of graphic statics for form finding of funicular shell structures.
Reasons to watch:
Who should watch:
- Learn the essentials of Thrust Network Analysis (TNA)
- Gain an understanding of RhinoVAULT 2 - a computational implementation of TNA
- Understand how to use RhinoVAULT 2 to design and analyse funicular shell structures
- 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
