This is my Master's Thesis translated to English (there might be some translation errors). My tutor is an architect specialized in structures and unfortunately I had no access to specialists in mathematics, computer sciences or material sciences, so please be gentle with me if you see any flops.

Remarks:
At the moment I am searching for a job. If someone is interested in hiring me please write me and I will send them a copy of my CV and a draft of my portfolio. My portfolio is still not online, because its 270MB at the moment and I am still improving it.

Title:
Aplications of the Strombus Gigas sea snail in architecture

Subtitle:

Development of a continous derivative structure by applying multi-objective evolutionary algorithms, implementation of an algorithm for the polygonization of surfaces, and development of a biomimetic wood-composite panel.

Abstract:
The mollusc shells are composed of calcium carbonate crystals sandwiched in a viscoelastic protein matrix. The shell of the Strombus Gigas has an internal structure composed of three laminar layers that criss-cross giving it a much higher mechanical resistance than inorganic calcium carbonate. Inspired by this, a continuous derivative structure is created through the application of a multiobjective algorithms. Later, through the application of a k-means algorithm, this surface is discretiziced into polygonal flat surfaces. And lastly a biomimetric wood based panel is manufactured and structurally tested.
