Papers at the Annual Symposium of the International Association for Shell and Spatial Structures, at MIT, Boston. July 16-20, 2018
Jan Brütting is presenting with Julieta Moradei a paper co-authored with ARUP on the structural characterization of traditional moment-resisting timber joinery. The paper initiates a research campaign whose purpose is to bring traditional interlocking connection details to the 21st Century. In addition, Jan Brütting and Joseph Desruelle are providing the details on their research case study which involved (1) characterizing an available stock of structural members from a about-to-be dismantled power transmission line in Valais and (2) developing a program for finding the optimal assignment, topology and geometry of a new structural system for the Lausanne train station roof. The paper is part of the ‘Environmentally Compatible Structures’ session. Read the extended journal paper version here.
