BUILD-OPT is a joint project between the Universities of Sheffield, Bath and Edinburgh and various industrial partners, including the Institution of Structural Engineers.
The aim of the project was to develop robust methods to identify efficient layouts of elements in building structures – such as trusses or floor plates - and eradicate barriers to wdespread adoption in industry.
The lecture examines how to bridge the divide between mathematically optimal forms and those that are practical, using existing or emerging fabrication methods.
