TECTONIC EXPLORATION PHYSICAL MODELLING
+ JOINTING FROM BEAM TO PANEL This connection seems to be firmly connect the string to the beam. However, the piezo patch that attached to the panel in between the connectors are irrational in term of the scaled size. It is too small and would not be energy efficient in this case.
+ JOINTING OF FLAPPING PANEL The long spanned string resulted in the swaying effect, due to the loads supported along the string. This caused the strutural beams to bend towards each other. Thus, extra support such as bracing and cable are needed to make the structural system firm.
