Danish Team Uses HyperWorks to Prove the Value of Topology Optimization for Concrete Architectural Structures

Download PDF

Denmark’s Aarhus School of Architecture
was interested in exploring the potential
of applying the kind of simulation-based
topology optimization used in the automotive,
aeronautical and naval industries to
architectural concrete structures and coupling
it with robotic fabrication of polystyrene
formwork for concrete casting. Led by
Per Dombernowsky, who served as project
manager and engineer, and Asbjørn
Søndergaard, who headed the project’s
design and optimization aspects, the
combined academic and industrial team
created the Unikabeton Prototype project.
