This booklet comprises 24 technical papers provided on the fourth variation of the Advances in Architectural Geometry convention, AAG 2014, held in London, England, September 2014. It bargains engineers, mathematicians, designers, and contractors perception into the effective layout, research, and manufacture of advanced shapes, in order to support open up new horizons for architecture.

The publication examines geometric elements considering architectural layout, starting from preliminary belief to ultimate fabrication. It makes a speciality of 4 key subject matters: utilized geometry, structure, computational layout, and likewise perform within the kind of case reports. additionally, the e-book additionally positive factors algorithms, proposed implementation, experimental effects, and illustrations.

Overall, the publication offers either theoretical and functional paintings associated with new geometrical advancements in structure. It gathers the varied elements of the modern architectural traits that push the construction envelope in the direction of unfastened shape to be able to reply to a number of present layout challenges.

With its advent of novel computational algorithms and instruments, this e-book will end up an amazing source to either novices to the sphere in addition to complicated practitioners.

The Geometry of Jet Bundles

The aim of this publication is to supply an advent to the idea of jet bundles for mathematicians and physicists who desire to research differential equations, really these linked to the calculus of adaptations, in a latest geometric approach. one of many subject matters of the booklet is that first-order jets might be regarded as the typical generalisation of vector fields for learning variational difficulties in box conception, and such a lot of of the structures are brought within the context of first- or second-order jets, ahead of being defined of their complete generality.

Both robots, each with an attached reconfigurable frame, function as one cooperative robotic system. This enables the robotic movements to be synchronised, maintaining the relative frame orientation without the need for interstitial structure, which could possibly obstruct the winding process. The two robots can also equally divide the dead loads placed on the system and resist tensile stresses accrued by sequentially tensioning the fibres. Feedback from integrated sensors in a robotic system allows for adaptive control to compensation for accumulated geometric inaccuracies.

Pedersen et al. Fig. 7 Left: fracture test of post-tensioned concrete elements. Right: diagram showing 12 mm deflection before the fracture at 1,400 N Fig. 8 Left: testing of distributed post-tensioning principle. Right: improved concrete element precision can be seen as an advantage because the break is not sudden, but happens after gradual deflection (Fig. 7, Right). To avoid the brittle fracture, the tension rod could be embedded in the concrete. In the case of funicular structures, this may not be relevant, since the structural behaviour changes when the construction is completed, and reinforcement therefore only has to transfer secondary loads in the finished construction.
