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...

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...
