Hydraulic Drive Revolutionizes the Performance of Wooden Shells

Hydraulic Drive Revolutionizes the Performance of Wooden Shells | architectural science and computation | Scoop.it
Instead of designing for the extremely rare maximum load scenarios, why not build with minimum material input and have buildings adjust to varying dynamic loads like snow and wind? Researchers at the University of Stuttgart teamed up with Bosch Rexroth (an engineering firm specializing in drive and control technologies) to create an ultra-lightweight wooden shell which owes its adaptive structural behavior to a specifically designed hydraulic drive system. SmartShell is only four centimeters thick, covers a surface area of 100 square meters (1076 square feet), and features hydraulic drives positioned at its four support points. The system produces imperceptible movements and adjusts the shell’s geometry to compensate deformations and ma...

all humans are basically fakes

all humans are basically fakes | architectural science and computation | Scoop.it
Vsauce, the master answerer of life's toughest questions and professional blower of minds, tackles something so philosophical in his latest video that you'll start to wonder what in the hell our purpose is on this Earth. And if it's any different than a purpose of a rock. It starts with the discussion of art and then fakes and forgeries of art and what forgeries really mean and what it means to be original and eventually leads into a discussion on how we're pretty much all just forgeries too. What is real! Who is real! Nothing is. Damn. Sauce.

Lepora NF, Verschure P, Prescott TJ.

"Biomimetics is a research field that is achieving particular prominence through an explosion of new discoveries in biology and engineering. The field concerns novel technologies developed through the transfer of function from biological systems. To analyze the impact of this field within engineering and related sciences, we compiled an extensive database of publications for study with network-based information analysis techniques. Criteria included publications by year and journal or conference, and subject areas judged by popular and common terms in titles. Our results reveal that this research area has expanded rapidly from less than 100 papers per year in the 1990s to several thousand papers per year in the first decade of this century. Moreover, this research is having impact across a variety of research themes, spanning robotics, computer science and bioengineering. In consequence, biomimetics is becoming a leading paradigm for the development of new technologies that will potentially lead to significant scientific, societal and economic impact in the near future."
