Our research and interest in creating a flexible structural insulated panel have led us to the DUKTA system. This system has been used for small panels, furniture, and objects. Now we want to take it a step further and bring it to a larger scale and create a panelized system.
The first step is to create 3 experiments within one week. These experiments will let us know bending capabilities of the material.
After deciphering allowable bending parameters we can then establish a form that demonstrates the maximum values.
The final step is to build this shape. A 6′ x 8′ structural panel with doubly curved attributes.
