Active Bending

Study group leader: Christoph Gengnagel,
co – leader : Julian Lienhard,

The study group ‘Active Bending’ aims at uniting structural engineering researchers and practitioners that share the approach of exploiting elastic bending as a means to generate curved geometries from initially straight or planar building elements. This newly formed Study group presents itself as a new subject within the Structural Morphology group, seeking to provide an active exchange platform for fellow researchers. The Study group will officially start at the IASS conference in Seoul 2012, the general aims of the group will be presented by the study group leaders together with a review of the current state of the art of active bending approaches in various application fields.
