Abstract

Realizing completely new functional design approaches one has to deal with different geometries, materials and construction methods. The acquisition of the needed data for a totally new initial model is complex and therefore design of light structure is typically done by changing or optimizing existing solutions. The database-driven engineering and design tool ELiSE uses marine plankton organism as archetypes. Since about 100.000 different species with different light structure geometries are known, a systematic use of this pool of potentially technically usable structures is consequential. As a result unique design solutions can be found efficiently and integrated to a consisting workflow.
