Architectural and structural development of plate tensegrity
2006 (English)In: Proceedings of the IASS 2006 colloquium: New Olimpics, New Shells and Spatial Structures, International Association of Shell and Spatial Structures , 2006Conference paper (Refereed)
Plate tensegrity is a structural principle combining the approach to the play of forces seen in tensegrity with plate and shear-plate action of surface elements and facetted shells. The origin of the concept and the potential development as a structural element system describes a step-by-step modification of the original definitions of tensegrity towards a hybrid structure with cable-stayed plates [1,2]. The work deals with development of the combination of structural elegance and efficiency and architectural utility and quality. The structural principle has not yet been applied in practice, but the performance of different assemblies are being further analysed from structural and architectural points of view.
