Graphic statics: from basics to computational tools - part 5 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, Block Research Group will introduce advanced topics in computational graphic statics, including 3D graphic statics based on polyhedral reciprocal diagrams.

Reasons to watch:
  • Learn about advanced topics in graphic statics
  • Hear about ongoing research in computational graphic statics
  • Gain an understanding of 3D graphic statics using polyhedral reciprocal diagrams
Who should watch:
  • 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
