algorithmic modeling for Rhino
Structures under compression load are less efficient than the same structures under tension load. Instead of material breaking, yielding which determines design of a structure, at compression structures - buckling occurs before mentioned events.
By replacing straight beam elements under compression, with a series of fractal space frames (two tetrahedra on both end, and a stack of polyhedra in between) and distributing the initial compression force into tension and compression members…Continue
