Soil Stabilized Pipe Support Solutions

In this article we will explain about the contribution of Flextegrity to Bio sensitive pipe support for soil stabilization. Flextegrity’s material architecture presents the opportunity to design dynamic, resilient load support systems.  Weight can be distributed over a larger area without impeding drainage in challenging environments such as permafrost, wetlands and sand.  Our permeable icosahedral […]

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 in the material are limited in length and not self-propagating. Provides adequate redundancy against failure while still maintaining high efficiency in use of material.

Increased Surface Area

The open 3-D geometry creates a regular, stable matrices with increased internal “active” surface area, capable of being “loaded” with functional elements. These elements can include: chemical ‘beads,’ wired or wireless addressable locations, circuitry, lighting/heating elements, solar cells, seeds, phase-change materials, and barrier layers.

Gradient from Stiff to Flexible

The geometry overrides conventional limitations on inherent stiffness or flexibility! A precisely defined flexibility and/or expansion “gradient” or “zone” can be created across a single plank or sheet in any plane or combination of planes. A wide range of non-homogenous characteristics can be custom-engineered within a single product even when manufactured of a homogenous material, making product performance local and site-specific.

Anisotropic Smart Sidewalk

Omni-directional control of material and size enables customized, integrated “hybrid” solutions using components of differing raw materials. Material/product design can be implemented in virtually any category and combination of materials (plastics, metals, textiles, wood products).
