Building and Environment selects three Best Paper Awards every year.

  • Octet-Truss Engineered Concrete for Lightweight Structures

    Six SinBerBEST and non-SinBerBEST researchers from UC Berkeley recently authored an article discussing innovative uses of Octet-Truss Engineered Concrete (OTEC.) It is a lightweight structure created in the empty spaces of the ultra-high performance, fiber-reinforced concrete with very-high compressive capability. OTEC leverages porous concrete’s thermal-insulating properties while sustaining strength and rigidity. Please click here to access the article. 

  • Design Automation for Smart Building Systems

    14 researchers from SinBerBEST, UC Berkeley, Nanyang Technological University, Tsinghua-Berkeley Shenzhen Institute, Florida State University, and University of Southern California recently published a paper on a platform-specific design process for smart buildings. In this case, a platform is a library, or a collection of components and their associated configurations that can be leveraged to create a design.
