Cardboard in Architecture: Volume 7 Research in by M. Eekhout, F. Verheijen, R. Visser

By M. Eekhout, F. Verheijen, R. Visser

The dep. of creating expertise on the college of structure at TU Delft is learning and constructing cardboard as a possible development fabric on a large, systematic and the place attainable finished foundation. The guiding study query is: 'How can cardboard be utilized in either architectural and structural phrases as an absolutely fledged construction fabric, applying the material-specific properties?' An exploratory part from 2003 to 2005 - together with an outside pilot constitution (multi-shed), a pilot pavilion accommodating, an exhibition, workshops on resistance to fireplace and to damp, a primary patent (KCPK), the layout of an inside wall (Besin) and the book of this ebook - was once concluded via a global symposium attended by means of either the paper and the construction undefined. This booklet includes the document on that symposium.IOS Press is a global technology, technical and scientific writer of fine quality books for lecturers, scientists, and pros in all fields. the various parts we put up in: -Biomedicine -Oncology -Artificial intelligence -Databases and knowledge structures -Maritime engineering -Nanotechnology -Geoengineering -All facets of physics -E-governance -E-commerce -The wisdom economic climate -Urban experiences -Arms regulate -Understanding and responding to terrorism -Medical informatics -Computer Sciences
