Tensile Structure Are Strong

Yes! They’re designed to withstand their environment. Tensile structures are often described as ‘lightweight’ because they don’t use a lot of materials.Really, ‘lightweight’ just means you need fewer materials to construct a tensile building than a traditional one. But, it can lead to concerns over whether the structure will be strong enough to stand the…

Example of a shell tensile structure

Shell structures are typically curved, light-weight structures. . Examples of man-made shell structures include tunnels, roofs. Shell structure, In building construction, a thin, curved plate structure shaped to transmit applied forces by compressive, tensile, and shear stresses that act in the plane of the surface. They are usually constructed of concrete reinforced with steel mesh.
