Abstract
The thesis demonstrates the structural and architectural potentials in one kind of innovative structure – strip bending-active structure. By adding torsion into this structure system, different signs of curvature on the strip surface generate the hyperbolic ssurfaces whichan provide much structural stiffness for the whole system. Furthermore, the huge difference of geometric stiffness in two directions of strip’s cross section has been utilized, for the purpose to create flexible special quality. In terms of methods, making physical models is the main way for initially form finding and spacial experiences. After that, the logic of the structure system is been developed and simulated using a 6 DOF (degrees of freedom) algorithm in a physical engine. At last, a new tool of IGA (isogeometric analysis) has been introduced not only to analysis the digital model but also unify computational environment of design (CAD) and simulation (FEA).
