Conference Paper
Full-text available
This article describes an experimental and multidisciplinary project with the goal to provide ecological alternative to the existing winter tourism in alpine regions. The project emerged from the fusion of a new snowmaking technology, based on the principle of natural snowflake evolution and the spatial conception of wooden Cloud structures, which...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
We here introduce our cloud chamber which enabled us to grow snow crystals from water vapour under conditions similar to those in natural clouds. The snow crystals grew as a result of water vapour supersaturation as well as due to the interaction of ice crystals and water droplets within the cloud chamber. The cloud chamber, of cylindrical shape wi...

Contemporary architecture and product design is confronted with a rapidly increasing offer of new materials and technologies. At the same time a growing consciousness can be observed that some established solutions need a fundamental change in regard to sustainability. This paper discusses self-formation as a method for sustainable innovation on th...
Article
In-depth analyses of sheared cohesive granular material have been performed using distinct element methods. A two dimensional geometry of a coaxial rheometer was used to investigate the shearing of cohesive granular material suffering constant radial loading. The investigated geometry has been chosen according to previous in situ snow experiments w...
Article
In order to better understand the interaction between powder avalanche and defense structures, we realized physical experiments on small-scale models. The powder snow avalanche was simulated by a « heavy » salt solution in a water tank. Quasi two-dimensional and three-dimensional experiments have been carried out with different breaking dams height...
