Scientific research

Different areas of science are studying a roofing workshop called “nature”. Biophysics studies living organisms using various physical methods. Biotechnics analyzes the “device” of animals and plants. Bionics combines biology and technology with each other. Based on the “patents” of nature, various materials and structural elements in roofing architecture are considered. Nature has been experimenting, trying, making and working on its roofing “patents” for more than three billion years, in order to improve or improve them. She experiences many options, in the process of evolution the best.

It is very difficult for a person to go on the trail of even one of the secrets of nature. Nature implements technical solutions significantly superior projects offered by people.

Here are a few examples:

• cunning spider webs, its thin, durable and elastic threads. Due to the uniform tension of individual threads, it itself takes the correct form. This principle is used today in the construction of sports halls, exhibition complexes, bridges and airports.

• honeycombs of various plants stabilizing leaves using their polygonal ribs. This principle is used in the construction of saving tube systems (supporting structures), as well as stretch marks and spacers in construction forests.

• Streamed forms (for example, forms of modern cars) were also borrowed from fish. A good example – compare the shape of the dolphin head with a bulbous nose.

The last example again returns us to the roof. Let’s look at a “house consisting only of the roof” – an inflatable pavilion, a thunderbat in a private house, as well as an inflatable pillow and an inflatable supporting structure and compare them with the iridescent colors of the rainbow with a soap bubble. The design is stable while the air pressure inside and outside the thin “membrane” is the same.

Acting in the spirit of bionics means not to imitate nature, but to invent natural natural principles again, optimizing them in accordance with our needs.
