Textile Composites and Inflatable Structures (Computational by Eugenio Oñate, Bernd Kröplin

By Eugenio Oñate, Bernd Kröplin

This e-book collects state of the art learn and expertise for layout, research, building and upkeep of fabric and inflatable buildings. cloth composites and inflatable buildings became more and more renowned for numerous purposes in – between many different fields – civil engineering, structure and aerospace engineering. common examples contain membrane roofs and covers, sails, inflatable structures and pavilions, airships, inflatable furnishings, airspace constructions and so forth. The ebook includes 18 invited contributions written through exclusive authors who participated within the overseas convention on cloth Composites and Inflated buildings held in Barcelona from June thirtieth to July second, 2003. The assembly was once one of many Thematic meetings of the eu neighborhood on Computational equipment in technologies (ECCOMAS). the various chapters speak about fresh growth and destiny examine instructions in membrane and inflatable buildings outfitted with new cloth composite fabrics. nearly 1/2 the booklet specializes in describing leading edge numerical tools for structural research of such buildings, resembling new nonlinear membrane and shell finite components. the remainder of the chapters current advances in layout, development and upkeep systems.

5 Further Extensions of the Force Density Approach The force density approach can be favorably exploited for further applications. According to [3] the following system of equations of equilibrium is valid: Ct QCx = p C is the matrix describing the topology of the system, Q is the diagonal matrix storing the force density values, x contains the coordinates of the nodes of the figure of equilibrium and p the external forces acting on the structure. For linear formfinding C, Q and p are given, x is the result of the above equation.

The Easy program suites EasyForm comprises the programs used for data generation together with force density form-finding. When the EasySan programs are additionally installed statical structural analysis of non-linear structures becomes possible.

These read qa (xm − xi ) + qb (xj − xi ) + qc (xk − xi ) + qd (xl − xi ) = px qa (ym − yi ) + qb (yj − yi ) + qc (yk − yi ) + qd (yl − yi ) = py qa (zm − zi ) + qb (zj − zi ) + qc (zk − zi ) + qd (zl − zi ) = pz The force density values q have to be choosen in advance depending on the desired prestress. The procedure results in practical networks which are reflecting the architectural shapes and beeing harmonically stressed. The system of equations assembled is extremely sparse and can be efficiently solved using the Method of Conjugate Gradients as described in [3].
