Voronoi Bicycle Helmet Bicycle Helmet by Zhecheng Xu and Yuefeng Zhou

Home > Winners > #88697


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Voronoi Bicycle Helmet

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Bicycle Helmet

INSPIRATION:
The helmet is inspired by 3D Voronoi structure which is widely distributed in Nature, for example, the structure of the animal's bone, turtle shell, and even straw, etc. The structure is a natural consequence of natural evolution, which gives the organism perfect physical performance in aspects of lightness, stability and energy interaction. Thus, we apply this parametric technique into the improvement of helmet design. At the balance of lightness and safety, we hope to provide people with more comfortable, more fashionable, and safer personal protection bicycle helmet.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
With a combination of parametric technique and bionics, the bicycle helmet has an excellent external mechanical system. It's different from traditional flake protection structure in its unabridged bionic 3D mechanical system. When hit by an external force, this structure shows better stability. The helmet's porous characteristic makes it possible to achieve a perfect balance of safety and lightness. And the helmet can get better air permeability and organic cool appearance.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The helmet structure is the important design elements in this design. The helmet's porous characteristic makes it possible to achieve a perfect balance of safety and lightness. And the helmet can get better air permeability and organic cool appearance.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in June 2018 in Nanjing, Jiangsu, China and would be available for mass consumption in July 2020 in Nanjing, Jiangsu, China.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Main Material: Shell is constructed from carbon kevlar and fiberglass resin with a polystyrene lining.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The helmet is still in the experimental test stage. It comes in 3 sizes. Shell is constructed from carbon kevlar and fiberglass resin with a polystyrene lining.

TAGS:
Helmet, Bicycle, VORONOI, Parametric, Bionics, Lightness, Stability

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
With the parametric technique, we take mechanical simulation experiments of inner structure sampling points. Based on the simulation date, structure sampling points are rearranged properly, and the helmet finally gets an integrated structure system. Considering the convenience of parametric technique, we can directly control the density parameter of the whole structure system, and specification parameter of the supporting system. After mechanical simulation experiments of the latest structure, the result of simulation affects controls parameter, which promotes the helmet's adaptation to different users and usage scenarios.

CHALLENGE:
It's a key of appearance design to make the structure system adapt to cavity form. In the research process, we have to arrange data interaction mechanism between different algorithm units. Iteration and feedback of data lead to the rationality of final simulation results,
