Topic: Form-Finding Analysis of Sustainable Tensile Fabric Shell Structures
Abstract: Nonlinear analysis method is one of the earliest methods proposed for form-finding analysis of tensile fabric structures. However due to some inherent weaknesses, the method has not been fully developed. In this study, computational strategies for form-finding analysis of tensile fabric structure using the nonlinear analysis method have been proposed. Since the method can be used for both the initial equilibrium problem and load analysis, the approach using nonlinear analysis is quite common. For the purpose of verification, form-finding of tensile fabric structures in the form of six minimal surfaces of Catenoid, Helicoid, Scherk, Enneper, Möbius strip, Costa and 11 cable reinforced tensile fabric structures have been carried out. The tensile fabric structure models have been found to converge with least square error of total warp and fill stress deviation less than 0.01. The proposed computational strategies for form-finding using nonlinear analysis have been proven to be applicable for form-finding of tensile fabric structures.
