Title
(EN) Supporting Structure for Curved Envelope Geometries
Abstract
(EN)

A support structure for curved envelope geometries, such as buildings and shipbuilding, that at least sectionally approximates a freeform surface, includes longitudinal connection elements and surface elements spanned by the connection elements. The surface elements are implemented as single-curved strip elements whose curvature runs in the longitudinal direction of the strip elements. Adjacent strip elements are connected to one another along their longitudinal edges via the longitudinal connection elements.
