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.

Tensile Fabric Structure Water Controls, Electrical & Lighting

A successful tensile fabric structure design incorporates solutions for all of the challenges of your project – from engineering the structure for specific loads to ensuring optimal functionality for its intended purpose.  There are many decisions to be made in the initial design and engineering phases, including the style and shape, fabric and membranes, and frame options.  But it doesn’t end there.  Once the…
