Recent studies have investigated the use of tensegrity structures for the construction of active solar façades of Energy Efficient Buildings. In this paper we simulate the dynamics of shading screens with tensegrity architecture through an in-house developed code that handles rigidity constraints on the deformation of the bars. We present numerical results illustrating the dynamic response of a tensegrity solar façade and its morphing capabilities, which require minimal storage of internal energy.

Abstract

Recent studies have investigated the use of tensegrity structures for the construction of active solar façades of Energy Efficient Buildings. In this paper we simulate the dynamics of shading screens with tensegrity architecture through an in-house developed code that handles rigidity constraints on the deformation of the bars. We present numerical results illustrating the dynamic response of a tensegrity solar façade and its morphing capabilities, which require minimal storage of internal energy.
