Abstract

Reciprocal Frame Structures (RFS) are three-dimensional assembly systems made up of mutually supporting beams that form a closed structural circuit. Each and every element of a RFS supports and is supported by one other component of the structure. The reciprocity principle enables that the whole structural element can be considered as a potential joint, so we can create transformable geometry systems by modifying the mutual support points, without affecting the configuration rules. RFS are structures that summarize the total simplification of technique into pure geometry. But, because of the resulting geometrical configuration of reciprocity, the material must answer some materialization requirements. This article studies the viability of the materialization of reciprocal transformable geometry surfaces with prestressed-concrete elements. ----------RESUMEN---------- Las estructuras recíprocas son sistemas tridimensionales de elementos mutuamente soportados en circuito estructural cerrado. Todos y cada uno de los componentes de una estructura recíproca soporta y está soportado por otro de los elementos constituyentes de la misma. El principio de reciprocidad posibilita que todo el elemento estructural sea susceptible de convertirse en nudo, por lo que pueden conformarse como sistemas móviles, sin afectar a sus leyes de configuración, al permitir la modificación de sus puntos de apoyo mutuo. Son estructuras que materializan la reducción total de la técnica a la geometría pura, pero fruto de estas configuraciones geométricas, se derivan unos requisitos de materialización característicos de la reciprocidad que tendrán que ser respondidos por el material. Con este artículo se estudia la viabilidad de la materialización de estructuras recíprocas transformables mediante elementos pretensados de hormigón.
