Load-bearing lattice structures and segmentation

Due to their simplicity and versatility, load-bearing lattice structures allow construction in hard-to-reach areas, as they are easy to transport, easy to install and do not take up much space. Established engineering practice uses a modular structure design where the load-bearing structure is divided into height segments. In the presented study, we question the appropriateness of such an approach.
