First-time development of a process for the energy-efficient, automated control of a membrane roof consisting of 32 5-layer ETFE cushions with the following objectives:
How can the defined goals be mapped by hardware and software in such a way that an economical, robust and reliable solution can be offered?
To what extent can the solutions found be used internationally in very different projects (different sizes, geometries, climate zones, et cetera)?
The development will be advanced via the construction of prototypes in various stages (individual components and overall system), their testing and parallel theoretical investigations (using simulation tools and computational estimations). The development of suitable control software will play an important role.
On the part of the industry partner, the aim is:
On the part of the HFT is planned:
