title A Tool for the design of Fabric Structures
source International Journal of Architectural Computing vol. 4 - no. 2, 81-94
summary This paper describes the development of a tool, now available for use over the Internet, for the preliminary design of a class of fabric structures. This tool is based on the so-called grid method in which vertical equilibrium over a grid in the horizontal plane is used to determine shape for a cable net. It can subsequently be combined with other analysis routines to produce a detailed structural design.
