Incontro con Mutsuro Sasaki. Algoritmi di progetto: La personalizzazione del software nel lavoro dello strutturista giapponese

Pugnale, Alberto & Sassone, Mario

December 2007 | Article

In occasione della conferenza tenuta al Politecnico di Torino il 6 novembre abbiamo incontrato Mutsuro Sasaki, strutturista giapponese noto per le collaborazioni con architetti «eccellenti» nelle quali ha contribuito alla definizione della forma architettonica fin dal primo momento, enfatizzando il carattere intrinsecamente multdisciplinare del progetto architettonico, e allo stesso tempo...

Evolutionary Structural Optimization in Shells Design

Sassone, Mario & Pugnale, Alberto

September 2007 | Conference Paper

In the paper the application of a GA evolutionary algorithm to the structural optimisation of free-form architectural shell structures, as large concrete roofs, is shown. The attention is focused on the need of different computational tools and on the problems involved in multidisciplinary design, as the communication and information exchange....
