The structural morphology operating staff of the overseas organization for Shell and Spatial buildings, based in 1991, has helped to release a number of overseas seminars, newsletters and particular periods of overseas meetings dedicated to structural morphology. This publication comprises papers which were chosen both for his or her basic contribution to structural morphology or for his or her real pertinence within the box. Polyhedral geometry, double-curved surfaces, organic buildings, foldable structures, form-finding thoughts, and loose shape layout are the various issues incorporated within the contents of this publication. The paintings awarded during this e-book is the results of greater than 15 years of analysis through researchers, engineers, mathematicians, and designers, who inspiration that conceptual layout would get advantages from the organization of separate fields (geometry, biology, and mechanics) in a holistic method. each element of structural morphology is illustrated through a number of chapters of the ebook. so far as we all know, there are few books - might be none - that assemble all features of structural morphology, no matter if, for example, there are lots of books at the geometry of polyhedra. additionally, readers may have entry to a wide record of chosen references, as a way to open the scope in their bibliography.

A couple of books were released on quite a few elements of concrete layout and detailing, yet this can be believed to be the 1st accomplished detailing guide, and covers information in bolstered, prestressed, precast and composite concrete.
The Definitive textual content on Concrete -- absolutely revised and updatedThis accomplished source provides the homes, habit, and know-how of concrete in an easy and hands-on demeanour. The 3rd variation of Concrete: Microstructure, homes, and fabrics bargains a three-part process, starting with a piece at the microstructure and homes of hardened concrete, by means of a numerous chapters on concrete-making fabrics and urban processing, and concluding with the most recent advances in concrete expertise, mechanics, and nondestructive trying out tools.
An independent, complete evaluate of helical pile know-how and applicationsHelical piles have risen from being in simple terms an attractive replacement for particular situations to a regularly asked, extra commonly accredited deep origin followed into the 2009 foreign construction Code. the 1st replacement to manufacturer-produced manuals, Howard Perko's Helical Piles: a realistic consultant to layout and deploy solutions the industry's desire for an independent and universally appropriate textual content devoted to the layout and deploy of helical piles, helical piers, screw piles, and torque anchors.
Basics of Structural Geology presents a brand new framework for the research of geological buildings by means of integrating box mapping and mechanical research. Assuming a uncomplicated wisdom of actual geology, introductory calculus and physics, it emphasizes the observational information, glossy mapping expertise, ideas of continuum mechanics, and the mathematical and computational talents, essential to quantitatively map, describe, version, and clarify deformation in Earths lithosphere.

Extra info for An Anthology of Structural Morphology
There are construction systems in which form depends directly on the forces applied and their equilibrium. The stiffening of these systems in a definite form is the result of the forces applied. There are two categories of equilibrium form systems: – “funicular” systems (in the broad sense of the term) in which form depends on the external system of actions applied. The denomination results from the equilibrium of cables subjected to individual actions. The best-known application is that of Gaudi in “Colonia Guell”.
The element in Fig. 7A represents 2 adjacent isosceles triangles. α = half the top angle of the isosceles triangle ABC with height a and base length 2b. γ = half the dihedral angle between the 2 triangles along the basis. φn = half the angle under which this basis with the length 2b is seen from the cylinder axis. = π/n. The relation of these angles α, γ and ϕn [Ref. 3]: tan α = cos γ cotan (ϕn/2) (2) These three parameters define together with the base length (or scale factor 2b) the shape and the dimensions of a section in such a structure.
