Research interests

Interest in space frame structures has increased drastically over the past years due to their structural efficiency and the freedom of design they provide. This research focuses on optimizing space frame structures for material efficiency, to address the carbon footprint associated with their complete lifecycle. Existing optimization tools can solve real scale problems and produce efficient structures, however the complexity of their design hinders their application in practice. Conway operators are studied in this direction, which can generate complex configurations when applied on a grid, while maintaining its modularity. This can have significant advantages both in the computational, as well as the fabrication and construction cost. Focus is therefore place on the development of a computational workflow for the layout optimization of space frame structures generated using Conway operators. Its development in a popular and user intuitive computational environment aims at its wide application in industry and the promotion of informed design solutions.
