SIMTECH | Simulation technology

The objective of the course is to simulate material and structural behaviour of architectural designs using digital techniques in the Grasshopper environment.  Students will develop their projects using Kangaroo (live physics engine plugin ) and Karamba (real-time finite-element analysis plugin) to generate forms and evaluate structures. Furthermore, using Octopus (evolutionary optimization plugin), the structure’s performance can be increased as well as learning how to manage and select optimization results.

The course will be taught by Matthew Tam of Bollinger + Grohmann Engineers.
