COMPUTATIONAL CO-DESIGN FRAMEWORK FOR FIBRE COMPOSITE BUILDING SYSTEMS

Coreless filament winding (CFW) of lightweight fibre composite systems enables highly differentiated placement of high-performance, load-bearing materials and creates new solution spaces for design and construction of lightweight fibrous structures. In early design phases of such large-scale coreless-wound fibre composite building systems, considerable effort is required to develop project-specific solutions due to the high complexity of interdependent parameters of design, construction and manufacturing demands. As a genuinely digital building system, CFW is reliant on a high level of integration. In order to process manifold interrelations within a multidisciplinary design and construction process, the project will develop a computational framework of general design methods to make large fibre-based systems conceivable and extend the design space beyond structures based on experience and intuition, unlocking the full potential of coreless filament winding. It aims to make the resulting building systems even more efficient and sustainable through a higher level of design integration as well as predictability. By identifying relevant parameters for the structural behaviour of the components across domains, it aims to decrease the necessary safety factors for designing these structures, thus ultimately the amount of material needed.
