The book categorizes the field of tensile structures starting from blown bubbles. Extensive structural mathematics are provided, but in separate chapters. I as particularly interested in reinforced fabric elevated water storage tanks, which could provide a lower cost infrastructure for our aging and smaller water systems.5/5(3).

The goal of this book is to take the readers through the introduction and basic understanding of the fascinating world of membrane structures. We recommend the book for beginners, it introduces students to the subject of Tensile Surface Structures.

It explains how to design membrane structures by using the right structural principles. Tensile surface structures are the visual expression of an intensive rethinking of the topic of building envelopes by designers. Advances in design methods, materials, construction elements and assembly and erection planning in the field of lightweight construction are enabling ever more exacting applications of tensile structures with envelope and structural functions, especially in.

The book was written to introduces students to the subject of Tensile Surface Structures. It explains how to design tensile membrane structures by using the basic structural principles.

A tensile structure is a construction of elements carrying only tension and no compression or term tensile should not be confused with tensegrity, which is a structural form with both tension and compression e structures are the most common type of thin-shell structures. Most tensile structures are supported by some form of compression or bending.

Frei Otto is still responsible for the first comprehensive book on tensile structures—"Das Hangende Dach" ()—and intensified the idea of reinventing material rationality, prefabrication. Book: Membrane Structures, First Steps towards Form Finding, by Romualdo Rivera.

The braced tensile structures are those whose stability is ensured by supporting at high levels and tensioning at low levels, so that the rest of the contour is free (Figure ).They need great supports (Figure ) and strong anchors (Figure ) with tension on the foundation and edge cables with important dimensions (Figure ).The major disadvantage of these.

For the first time in this edition, Frei Otto's two studies of nonrigid structures (Pneumatic Structuresand Cables, Nets, and Membranes)are available in one volume.

Pneumatic Structuresdeals for the most part with surfaces loaded by tractive forces. Special membranes, of high tensile strength, are made semi-rigid by means of differences of enclosed air or fluid. In this chapter, the design and analysis of two special types of structures: tensile and tensegrity structures are explained.

It starts with the introduction of tensile structure, including different membrane materials, different types of support. This is followed by discussion of major loadings need to be considered for tensile structural.

Tensile fabric structures: Concepts, practice & developments Article (PDF Available) in Structural Engineer 82(14) July. Tensile structures have proprietary technology, mainly based on material behaviour. Requiring a double curvature on the entire surface of the textile membrane determines its shape and, thus, its final appearance.

Creative ability and designer knowledge, with systematic use of software, distinguish the final architectural result.

Excellent introduction to structural engineering. IMS gathered us as a family and after I finish the course I am sure I will be having regular visits because we really feel like we belong to this institute. I would like to thank Dr. Robert Off and the whole team of IMS for giving us this nice experience and making the dream of tensile structures a course that came true.”.

Stuttgart, October Werner Sobek. Foreword. Tensile Structures Education, Inc. is a nonprofit organization to educate on the subject of Tensile Structures. Founded by Romualdo Rivera, author of the book: Membrane Structures, First Steps towards Form Finding.

Membrane structures are spatial structures made out of tensioned membranes. The structural use of membranes can be divided into pneumatic structures, tensile membrane structures, and cable these three kinds of structure, membranes work together with cables, columns and other construction members to find a form.

FabriTec Structures is an award-winning lightweight structures contractor specializing in the design and construction of complex cable and custom tensile membrane structures, and. Tensile fabric structures have become increasingly common in today’s architecture due to their design flexibility, beauty, and functional benefits.

While these modern forms of fabric architecture have seen an explosion in recent decades as a result of technologically advanced materials, tensile structures have their roots in some of the earliest forms of man-made shelters.

Tensile Structure Systems is a boutique firm in the Tensile Membrane Structure Industry. We specialize in the design-build of custom tensile structures, fabric facades, tensile roof systems and shade sails.

We have over 30 years experience in the design, engineering and manufacturing of tension fabric / tensile membrane structures.
