Scope of IS:

Computational design has pushed a boundary of feasible structural designs by incorporating various methods in computer graphics, computer-aided geometric design, and structural mechanics. In the computational design process, parameters that numerically determine the geometric and structural properties play key roles to represent the model and rationalize the design. This session aims at bringing together researchers working on various aspects of parametric approaches for the design of tensile and membrane structures. Topics of interest for this session include, but are not limited to the following methods for analysis and design of tensile and membrane structures:

  • Parametric approaches to conceptual, computational, performative design
  • Machine learning for design and identification
  • Data visualisation including VR, AR, and Digital Twins
  • Parametric-driven performance optimisation
  • Improving existing and developing novel parametric methodologies and tools
