"The Tensioned Fabric Roof" describes the state-of-the-art design of fabric tension structures. The fundamentals of a fabric structure's design and construction as required by engineers, contractors, and architects are presented. The book discusses the unusual character of the fabric structure industry and its implications for how structures are marketed, designed, and constructed. Included are chapters on the fundamentals of membrane behavior, the possibilities and limitations in roof form, fabric materials, analytical techniques, structural details, fabrication and erection, and non-structural design parameters that include daylighting, energy use, acoustics, and fire safety. Written by an experienced practitioner of fabric structure design, this book methodically addresses all aspects of the design and construction process. Structural engineers will gain an understanding of shaping, analysis, and design of members and connections; architects will learn the possibilities and limitations in fabric roof form, as well as the means of achieving successful energy, lighting, acoustical, and fire safety performance; and contractors will receive invaluable information related to their fabrication and erection. The book also includes special 24-page color insert.

Tensile Fabric Structures: Design Analysis and Construction summarises the range of tensile membrane structure forms and their applications and documents the current state of knowledge regarding loading form finding and nonlinear analysis of membrane structures. Structural forms and details are generally left exposed in tensile membrane designs and are strongly tied to architecture and aesthetics. These environmentally friendly and economically competitive structures are found in a wide range of recreational and transportation facilities. This report updates the earlier Tensioned Fabric Structures: A Practical Introduction. Topics include: history of tensioned membrane structures mechanical lighting and thermal properties of membrane materials fire safety and durability of membrane materials shape determination and analysis fabrication and erection process attachment to supporting structures structural design and aestheticsThis report will provide practical guidance to structural engineers architects and builders of tensile membrane structures.
