Full Scale Prototype (TBM w/ Aluminum Trim) - Phase 2

Full Scale Prototype (Plexi) - Phase 1

Without Trim (material resists Hypar Shape)

With Trim (material takes Hypar Shape)

Corner Connection Detail

[Updated] Connection Across (Notched) Single overlap

Connection Adjacent (Bent)

Hypar Panel Testing w/ Trim

Trim Connection Development

Rendered images of aggregated panels with tiles in different configurations, with a diagrammatic analysis of sun shading and ventilation effectiveness.

These are additional variation types, with the last being the most effective.

After receiving the material, we discovered that the bimetal is actually pre-curled, therefore starting curled when cold and flattening as it is heated, as shown in different lengths.

More studies of sun permeation at different times of the year, angles of panels, and direction of flaps.
