Multi-Level, Multi-Agent Timber Slab Design Method Proof of Concept


This repository contains the algorithmic methods and geometric results of the proof of concept for a multi-level, multi-agent timber slab design method. It includes the base plan, the structural simulation methods used for both its initial rough and subsequent fine grain analysis, the algorithm for its segmentation, and the two agent simulations used to first arrange, and then simplify, the slabs' internal structural reinforcement. This design method is described in the related publication. To use this design method, first the 00_BaseFile must be opened with Rhino 3D. It can then be structurally analysed from within the grasshopper environment using 01_SofistikAnalsys. The result of the rough analysis, provided, can then be used for the segmentation of the slab within this same file. Once segmented, the slab can be analysed again. The result of the fine analysis, provided, can then be fed to 02_SplotchWeb_Generate to arrange the slab’s internal reinforcement.
