Tensile Fabric Canopies

    tensile fabric
  • A tensile structure is a construction of elements carrying only tension and no compression or bending. The term tensile should not be confused with tensegrity, which is a structural form with both tension and compression elements.
    canopies
  • (canopy) cover with a canopy
  • (canopy) the transparent covering of an aircraft cockpit
  • (canopy) the umbrellalike part of a parachute that fills with air
  • Cover or provide with a canopy

The O2 from East India Dock Basin
The O2 from East India Dock Basin
Architect: Richard Rogers Partnership; Engineering: Buro Happold, 1999. View of The O2, also known as The Dome, from East India Dock Basin on the north bank of the river Thames. The O2 is basically a 20,000 person tent, with a PTFE-coated glass-fibre fabric canopy, 1km in circumference. Originally a political white-elephant to mark the Millennium, it is now very successful as a music venue with a huge seating arena inside.. The building will also host the 2012 Olympic gymnastics events. A GBP50.5m scheme starts summer 2011 to build a cable-car link from The O2 to Royal Victoria Dock.

AD was appointed to increase public awareness of the College's Arts Campus in Hitchin, and this was achieved with the striking use of tensile fabric structures to create a new landmark pedestrian entrance, leading to a new reception and exhibition gallery. The design won a Chilterns Buildings Design Award

ISO 13934-2:1999, Textiles -- Tensile properties of fabrics -- Part 2: Determination of maximum force using the grab method
This part of EN ISO 13934 specifies a procedure for the determination of maximum force of textile fabrics known as the grab test.The method is mainly applicable to woven textile fabrics. It may be applicable to fabrics produced by other techniques. It is not normally applicable to woven elastic fabrics, geotextiles, nonwovens, coated fabrics, textile-glass woven fabrics and fabrics made from carbon fibres or polyolefin tape yarns (see annex D).The method specifies the determination of the maximum force of test specimens in equilibrium with the standard atmosphere for testing and of test specimens in the wet state.The method is restricted to the use of constant rate of extension (CRE) testing machines.
