Course 11050 Super-light structures
In this regular DTU course about 50 students per year learn how to make a super-light structure and a number of projects are designed.
A variety of topics are treated in M.Sc. projects at DTU but also La Sapienza in Rome and the universities of Padova and Iceland have contributed.
As examples of topics you can mention: Buildings with SL-decks (as the building by BIG Architects one on the photo), fixed end connections for SL-decks, tests of prototypes of SL-decks, tests of prototypes of sandwich walls, double curved two dimensional peal-chain structures for shells, foundation of pearl-chain bridges, integration of heating in SL-decks, material properties of filling for pearl-chain bridges.
