Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to simulate load bearing structures. Starting point ´ll be –after an introduction to Grasshopper - the simulation of fundamentals, like mass, acceleration and forces.  

Subject of course

PT 1 and PT 2: The analysis will include cable-, vault- and bending structures in 2D as well as in 3D. So it´s possible to perceive, evaluate and optimize building-structures within given design-parameters.

In the PT 1 course, the basics are taught. A deepening takes place in the course PT 2.

Teaching methods

Necessary equipment: Laptop with Rhino 6, further Grasshopper, Kangaroo and other Grasshopperaplications.
