Tectonics of Form Resistant Structures (ARCH337)
A course covering the relationship between structural behavior, form, methods of construction, and tectonics for form- resistant structures, via successful case studies. The relation between internal forces, form, and tectonics. Strength and deformation of members in compression and tension, and problems of buckling and wind instability on existing examples, in relation to the effect of solutions to th e tectonics of the building. Internal forces in form- resistant structures using physical mod els and approximate analysis of existing structures. Standards and regulations and their effects on tectonics of architecture.
