Parametric and Generative Design Techniques for Digitalization in Building Industry: The Case Study of Glued- Laminated-Timber Industry
(Institute of Physics Publishing, 2016)
According to Wortmann classification, the Building Industry (BI) can be defined as engineer-to-order (ETO) industry: the engineering-process starts only when an order is acquired. This definition implies that every final ...
Programming a Parametric Design Algorithm to Improve Manufacturing Processes’ Efficiency: the Case Study of Glued-Laminated Timber
In the last decade, Parametric and Generative Design techniques become quite popular for form-finding strategies or for pushing automation in design processes. Nevertheless these techniques could be applied in engineering ...
Parametric and Generative Design techniques in mass-production environments as effective enablers of Industry 4.0 approaches in the Building Industry
While the manufacturing industry in Europe is looking at Industry 4.0 approaches and technologies to maintain the current competitive advantage, on the other hand, in the building industry (BI) they may push an improvement ...
"build4future" - interdisciplinary design: From the concept through production to the construction site
The sustainability of the built environment is affected by many factors including the construction materials chosen and the arrangement of living and working spaces. However, each building project is unique, with different ...
Prefabricated Timber Façade for the Energy Refurbishment of the Italian Building Stock: The Ri.Fa.Re. Project
This paper describes the Ri.Fa.Re. timber-based solution, an innovative timber-based prefabricated panel for the energy refurbishment of the existing Italian buildings' façades. Although similar technologies have already ...
