PHASE 02 – Composition – 7/2 – 15/2

Day 3:


Day 2: Structural and ventilation strategy.

Day 1: Models from phase 1 in the windtunnel.


PHASE 01 – Element & Dynamic – 2/2 – 7/2

The first phase of the Aero architectural studio experiments is based on blowing salt in a two dimensional grid with different arrangement of walls for the walls to hit.
The experiments are photographed and the movedment af the salt caused by the wind is by overlaying these photos traced into a grafical representation of how the salt moves over time.
In these experiments it is interesting to see how different arrangements of walls interact in terms of the patterns that evolve from the experiment and how adding or moving a wall can have effects on the entire system.
These basic experiments should give a understanding how an airflow behaves in a controlled environment.

Day 4:

4-1

In this experiment the patterns to the left evolves as in exp. 9 to the left while another wall is added in front of the 3 other, this causes a higher pressure in front of this wall which blows salt away. It also causes the in front of the middle wall to evolve towards the first wall.

4-2

In this experiment the first two walls are places as in exp. 10 causing a higher pressure in the gab, but the gab between the two last walls causes air to flow through and therefore a lower pressure is created between the first and last walls.
If the airflow continues the would be a a very liniar pattern behind the last gab.

4-3

The airflow is creating turbolens between the two walls to the right causing the pattern between them to evolve against the airflow direction.

4-4

The small gab between the two front walls are creating a high pressure which moves salt between the two.

Day 3:

3-1

The pattern in front of the two last walls evolves as in exp. 6, while the turbolens in front of the middle wall is stronger to the left because of the lower pressure behind the first wall.

3-2

The airflow causes a higher pressure in front of the first two walls which which moves towards the gab between the two. The biggest pattern is created in front of the last wall because of the combination of wind coming through the gab and the lower pressure behind the first two walls.

3-3

Between the fist and the last wall a lower pressure is created causing the pattern in front of the last wall to evolve against the windflow.

3-4

As in exp. 3 the airflow causes a higher pressure in front of first wall. to the right the pattern evolves much more in the airflow direction because of the position of the wall.

Day 2:

2-1

This experiment is the exactly the same as in experiment 3 except another wall is placed behind the first wall, this causes salt to be blown away more in the same direction as the airflow than in exp. 3. Therefore one can assume that there must be a lower pressure behind the first wall campared to ex. 3.

2-2

The airflow causes higher pressure in font of both walls. To the left of the first wall it looks a lot like exp. 5 and 3, but to the left the airflow causes a pattern where it evolves against the airflow direction. This could be because of the lower pressure in front of the fist wall.

2-3

The pattern should be symmetrical if the airflow is airflow is parallel to the walls.
There should evolve a lower pressure in the gab between the two walls.

2-4

A higher preassure is crated in front of both walls which causes the pattern to evolve from here.

Day 1:

1-4

Compared to experiment 3 the airflow direction is moved to the right, which causes a high preassure at the corner of the wall. Therefore the patterns follow the airflow direction at the right side of the wall. Salt is also removed along the wall towards the left because of lower preassure.

1-3

The airflow is causing a higher pressure, in front of the wall. With a bigger surface the salt is moved away in the sides in a non linear way compared to the airflow direction.

1-2

The airflow hits the wall and creates a higher pressure as in experiment 1.
The pattern is asymmetric because of the airflow direction. More salt is blown away on the side with the most airflow and therefore highest pressure.
There should be a lower pressure on the left side than on the right, which should cause more air to be blown towards it.

1-1

The airflow hits the wall and creates a higher pressure, which causes salt to be blown from it to the lower pressure zones on both sides of the wall.
The pattern looks almost symmetric because of the airflow direction.
