Special Issue on Computational Formfinding and Realisation of Novel Structures
Submission Date: 2024-04-01

Formfinding is often described as the finding of the equilibrium shape of novel or surface structures. However, formfinding may encompass much more since the realisation of a structure in engineering terms depends on the materials to be used. Surface structures realised with fabrics require additional software for patterning where the full scale modeling of the structure in a virtual wind tunnel may become important. This may generate large amounts of data to be processed and visualised. This special issue will consider recent developments in formfinding methods such as dynamic relaxation, force density, matrix iterative techniques and optimization methods. In addition, the use of computational tools for visualisation and modelling based on multi-core processors and GPUs will be included. Papers demonstrating how innovative developments in engineering software can result in innovative construction methods and materials, new structural forms, and energy effective solutions to diverse engineering problems may be submitted to the special issue. New applications of optimization methods, finite element modelling, fluid-structure interaction, large data processing and visualisation as applied to structures are within the scope of the special issue.
