Design of bracing systems for high-rise buildings
Topology optimisation techniques can be used to determine the optimal material distribution of bracing systems for high-rise buildings, which are particularly sensitive to lateral loading forces.
Evolutionary Structural Optimisation
This project aims to develop a simple but versatile technique for finding structurally efficient designs.
Topology optimisation of periodic structures
Structures that duplicate a large number of identical or similar modules will substantially reduce manufacturing costs and greatly simplify the assembly process.
Topology optimisation of material microstructure
This project is aimed at establishing effective and efficient computational algorithms for optimising the microstructures of materials and composites with single or multiple functional properties.
Optimisation of building structures using CFD-BESO
This project is aimed at finding the optimum structural system in preliminary building designs that consider wind loads.
New perspective on bath sponges
This project is the world’s first comprehensive study to consider the luffa sponge as an alternative material for energy absorption and other applications.
