algorithmic modeling for Rhino

This is my Master's Thesis translated to English (there might be some translation errors). My tutor, Mr. Antonio Macia is, among other things, 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.

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.

Gracias Andrés. Le he bajado la resolución a los ficheros, pero los he dejado con resolución suficiente para leer el texto. Tienes que hacer click en "View Full Size" para verlo bien. La verdad que es un coñazo. Lo mismo lo cuelgo en Issuu o Scribb.

Enhorabuena, Jesús tiene muy buena pinta. Es una pena que no podamos leer, por su tamaño. Si tienes algún enlace ponlo para que podamos verla detenidamente. Gracias.
