Abstract:

Tensegrity is an emerging and comparatively new system which creates astonishing, lightweight and flexible structures, giving the impression of a constellation of struts floating in the air. They are a special type of light-weight space truss structures, where the tensile elements are made of cables. However, a lot of research has concentrated on the theoretical side such as form finding, only a few practical mechanisms have been done on how to use these structures. This paper provides the base study for design and construction of a single curvature double layer tensegrity grids. This paper also explores the specific form appropriate for such systems if used for large roofs. Also, this study reviews the performance of tensegrity grids for different loads. The comparison is done with a conventional roof system based on the economy and practicality.
