  6. Space frames are widely used in spatial constructions as they are lightweight, rigid, and efficient. However, when it comes to the complex and irregular spaces frames, they can be difficult to fabricate because of the uniqueness of the nodes and bars. This paper presents a novel timber space frame system that can be easily manufactured using 3-axis CNC machines, and therefore increase the ease of the design and construction of complex space frames. The form-finding of the space frame is achieved with the help of polyhedral graphic statics (PGS), and resulted form has inherent planarity which can be harnessed inmore »the materialization of the structure. Inspired by the traditional wood tectonics kerf bending and zippers are applied when devising the connection details. This system's design approach and computational process are described, and a test fabrication of a single node is made via 3-axis CNC milling and both physically and numerically tested. The structural performance shows its potential for applications in large-scale spatial structures.« less

  9. Next-generation scientific applications in various fields are experiencing a rapid transition from traditional experiment-based methodologies to large-scale computation-intensive simulations featuring complex numerical modeling with a large number of tunable parameters. Such model-based simulations generate colossal amounts of data, which are then processed and analyzed against experimental or observation data for parameter calibration and model validation. The sheer volume and complexity of such data, the large model-parameter space, and the intensive computation make it practically infeasible for domain experts to manually configure and tune hyperparameters for accurate modeling in complex and distributed computing environments. This calls for an online computational steeringmore »service to enable real-time multi-user interaction and automatic parameter tuning. Towards this goal, we design and develop a generic steering framework based on Bayesian Optimization (BO) and conduct theoretical performance analysis of the steering service. We present a case study with the Weather Research and Forecast (WRF) model, which illustrates the performance superiority of the BO-based tuning over other heuristic methods and manual settings of domain experts using regret analysis.« less
