Strength to Weight Advantage

Strength-to-weight ratio is inherently high even before material choice. Like the strongest “traditional” materials (wood, steel, and reinforced concrete), the geometry has significant strength both in tension and compression, affording greater freedom and efficiency in design and use. Failure-resistance is a natural by-product of the constituent element shape factors and discontinuous geometry, such that tears […]
