In the city of Shah Alam located just outside of Kuala Lumpur, the Shah Alam Sport Complex is built as a multi-use sports facility. The aim of this study is to discuss the management of...

Analysis and Design of a Double Layer Barrel Vault with a Large Span
The roof of coal storage in JiaXin Power Station is a double-layer barrel vault. This roof covers span of 103.5 M and a longitudinal span of 88.0 M. The height of this space truss is 3.5...

Structural Integrity of Space Trusses
Space trusses of the double layer grid configuration can experience rapid propagation of failure in the ultimate load condition and thus are potentially vulnerable to progressive collapse...

Experimental Study on the Buckling Behavior of a Triodetic Aluminum Space Frame: No. 2 Ultimate Bearing Strength of a Single Layer Space Frame

Collapse Behavior of Double-Layer Space Truss Grids with Member Buckling
The results of collapse tests of over twenty space truss grids with elastic buckling of members are reviewed. The space truss grids include three types, that is, square-on-square, square-on-diagonal...

Study on Mechanical Characteristics of Light-weight Complex Structure Composed of a Membrane and a Beam String Structure
This paper aims at studying a new type of Beam String Structure, in which a membrane is used as finishing material. This paper reports on the mechanical characteristics of this structure,...

Active Control of Axial Forces in Beam String Space Frames
The present work discusses a formulation for active control of axial forces of strings in beam string structures to dynamically and/or statically reduce the responses, and proves both...

Form Finding Numerical Methods for Tensegrity Systems
The rigidification of Tensegrity Systems is related to selfstress states which can be achieved only when geometrical and mechanical requirements are simultaneously satisfied. This paper...

Design and Construction of the Cable-Stayed Wooden Space Truss Roof
The thinning must be enforced for healthy development of an artificial forest. The most effective use of thinning lumber is construct of the space truss structure. This election systems...

The Nature of Structural Morphology and Some Interdisciplinary Examples
Among members of IASS, the most common definition of Structural Morphology is the study of interaction between geometrical form and structural behavior. The most significant structural...

Architecture and Lightweight Structures: A Methodical Design Approach
Lightweight structures such as membrane structures, shells, space-grid, lightweight trussed and suspended structures have become an integral part of the international building scene. While...

Tensegrity Structures: Filling the Gap Between Art and Science
Underlining the role of structuralism in contemporary architecture this paper addresses the application of structural morphology in the context of an educational experience. Focussing...

Space Frames and Polyhedra
Polyhedra are easy to build and they can be useful as architectural matrices. Relatively small polyhedra can be built as faceted structures; very large ones can be built with space frames....

A Quasicrystal for Denmark's Coast
The first true quasicrystal structure will have been built in the fall of 1993 at COAST (The Center for Art, Science, and Technology at the Danish Technical University). With 600 aluminum...

Hyper-Geodesic Structures: Excerpts from a Visual Catalog
A class of hyper-geodesic surface structures is presented. The surfaces of known polygons, polyhedra, plane and space tessellations, higher dimensional polytopes can be subdivided into...

Fast Monte Carlo Simulations and Safety Index Checking
This paper presents recent techniques which require a small number of simulations to assess the structural reliability. They combine both the concept of importance zones in the random...

SQP Methods for Inverse Airfoil Design
We consider inverse design problems of systems governed by suitable discretizations of a boundary value problem (BVP). We present and examine a Sequential Quadratic Programming (SQP) method...

Generalized Optimal Active Control with Embedded and Half-space Soil-Structure Interaction
The paper presents an optimal active control algorithm with soil-structure interaction for seismic response. By using an intelligent device in the feedback gain matrix, the algorithm can...

Engineering, Construction, and Operations in Space IV
This proceedings, Engineering, Construction and Operations in Space IV, consists of over 155 papers presented at Space 94, the Fourth International...

Demand/Supply Relationship in Transportation Network Design Problems: A Genetic Algorithm Approach
The cumulative genetic algorithm (CGA) has its significant advantages over the heuristic algorithms in dealing with transportation network design problems. Using CGA, the entire solution...
