‘It’s a new world’: How scaffolding became a tool for science
Posted May 06, 2018 04:23:18The scaffolding system developed in the 1970s by the German architect Klaus Schwertner was adapted to the work of modern-day architects, engineers and engineers’ assistants.
It’s now being used by scientists, engineers, mathematicians, physicists, and computer scientists.
It started out as a way to support the building of buildings and scaffolds for people who didn’t have access to them.
But scaffolding is also an increasingly important part of modern life, and has been used in many other fields, such as design and manufacturing.
In this talk, lead author Dr. Andreas Fuchs, a research associate at the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Matter and Systems, will discuss the development of scaffolding as an effective tool for the creation of 3D models of objects, or for studying the dynamics of a system.
The work has been funded by the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme.
