title A Structurally Informed Design Process by Real-time Data Visualisations
source Kepczynska-Walczak, A, Bialkowski, S (eds.), Computing for a better tomorrow - Proceedings of the 36th eCAADe Conference - Volume 1, Lodz University of Technology, Lodz, Poland, 19-21 September 2018, pp. 687-696
summary This paper will discuss data visualisation in structural engineering for comparing design alternatives. By having the structural information of all different design proposals at hand, the designer is able to make informed design decisions. The authors developed a tool for creating interactive graphs while designing structures in a parametric design environment. In this work a case study of different structural design alternatives of a stadium roof is presented. Based on this design case, some graphs and the new informed design approach will be explained. Also the implementation of the tool within a parametric design environment with its advantages and issues is discussed.
