title Knitted Composites Tower - Design Research for Knitted Fabric Reinforced Composites Based on Advanced Knitting Technology
source D. Holzer, W. Nakapan, A. Globa, I. Koh (eds.), RE: Anthropocene, Design in the Age of Humans - Proceedings of the 25th CAADRIA Conference - Volume 1, Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand, 5-6 August 2020, pp. 55-64
summary Faced with growing urbanization demands of developing countries and global shortages of construction materials, this research looks for an innovative light-weight high-performance material system for architectural applications. The knitted composites tower is a 7.2-meter, 260-kilogram and self-supported prototype that uses 2mm thick knitted fabric reinforced composites. The result is lightweight and strong. It demonstrates the design potentials of knitted fabric reinforced composites. This article takes knitted composites tower as an example to illustrate a design method for knitted fabric reinforced composites. The design method covers three aspects of structural form selection, structure arrangement, and microscopic configuration. At last, the complete fabrication and construction process will be discussed with a full-scale physical prototype.
