Fabric Structure Engineering

Engineering is critical to the success of any fabric tension structure and includes: Determining applicable loads, pre-stress, and final design strength and serviceability  loads Determine reactions and subsequent structural behaviour Design Structure/Critical Detailing/Connection The whole process is iterative and requires Continue reading Fabric Structure Engineering

Tension – not bending

Tensioned Structure

Fabric structures are often referred to as tensile structures which refers to the basic principles involved i.e. the fabric system should be in tension. Poor design can result in asymmetric tension forces which can lead to bending as can be Continue reading Tension – not bending
