Workshop 2011 - Design of Tension Shadecloth Shade Structures 

This workshop was held immediately prior to the 2011 Conference on Wednesday October 12 2011.
Location: Novotel Sydney Olympic Park
Engineers Australia Logo
Supported by Engineers Australia for CPD Credits

Tensioned membrane structures have become an important structural form for both large span roof structures as well as for smaller covered areas which also serve as an architectural statement. This seminar is an opportunity to learn about the basic structural design parameters, material selection, fabrication and erection techniques.

A particular focus of the seminar will be design factors, fabrication details, shade prediction and maintenance of smaller shade structures made from knitted porous shade-cloth with applications to providing shade to schools, playgrounds, car parking and storage, nurseries and domestic environments.
