Spend an evening examining Olympic structures, shells, tensegrity, and beyond.
Oasys’ very own Professor Peter Debney spoke at another IStructE technical meeting, this time at the University of Bradford on the 24th October 2018.
Traditional structures are linear, stiff, restricted, heavy, and inefficient; lightweight structures on the other hand, whether in fabric, cable, timber, or stone, are non-linear, long spanning, flexible, highly efficient, and environmentally friendly. When form follows force as well as function, the result is a structure that soars.
