Digital detailing on the edge: joining of complex curved composite panels

This paper concerns the detailing of panel edge joints within the context of an adaptive subdivision system for composite panelling of complex curved surfaces. A general overview of this context is provided, followed by more in-depth description of the challenges of joining the resulting panels as well as various alternatives for doing so. The alternatives are evaluated with respect to multi-criterion considerations including panel materials, machining capabilities, joint forces, joint orientation, appearance and weather-resistance among others, which are expected to vary from project to project – as well as possibly among locations within a project – and therefore affect the choice(s) of detailing.
