title Hanging Roof Forms Research
source Cyber-Real Design [Conference Proceedings / ISBN 83-905377-2-9] Bialystock (Poland), 23-25 April 1998, pp. 93-99
summary This article presents a general description of the suspended roof forms. The concept covers all kinds of diaphragms, tents and cord nets. Depending on the roof construction, in particular the way of attachment, the used material or external factors, the roof forms undergo some decisive changes. The shape of the suspended roofs is difficult to define, especially in case of more complex roofs. Their surfaces are multi-curvature and do not comprise typical solids or geometrical forms, which make the design even more complicated. The shape of the surfaces is close to the minimal surfaces, i.e. those, which we would obtain form a bubble film spread over any limited outline. Unfortunately, the very designing, element dimensions as well as the tension design are still troublesome. Only the finite element method, if applied, allows the film form design. Nowadays, thanks to particular computer programmes, it is possible to simulate certain phenomena.
