A new generation of indestructible bridges could be possible, thanks to new research. An engineer has taken a design process called ‘form-finding’, inspired by the natural world, into another level. This could, for the first time, lead to the design of bridges and buildings that can take any combination of permanent loading without generating complex stresses. Such structures will have enhanced safety, and long durability, without the need for repair or restructuring.
