Aims: Fixed vertical and horizontal canopies that are used in buildings give a low level of clean and inexpensive energy. Therefore, modern technology should use in constructing new buildings in order to have maximum use of this blessing. One of these technologies is kinetic canopies which they can put on the façade. This would result in optimal use of sunlight and also a dynamic design style. The purpose of the current study is to present a kinetic smart shell model inspired by the Mimosa pudica motion algorithm in order to optimize energy consumption.
Materials & Methods: This study is quantitative and simulation-modeling research that modeling of kinetic shell has done in the Rhino 6 software and Grasshopper and climate analysis has performed using the Ladybug plugins. The shell has been analyzed on the south facade of a building in the Shiraz climate.
Findings: In the current study, attempted to create one-degree-angle canopies in each of the horizontal constituents by optimizing the facade to achieve better performance and aesthetic form. The amount of radiation received in this analysis ranges from 0 to 50.16kwh/m2. Finally, a table on the analysis of the kinetic shell energy from 6 to 19 o'clock in August and the climate of Shiraz was presented.
Conclusion: Modeled smart shell can be used as a kinetic canopy that can optimize energy consumption compatable with Shiraz climate.
