Design process is critical success element in tensile fabric structure. All project kick-offs starts with the design stage. And in tensile fabric structure, the design process plays a vital role in the success of quality fabric roof. The design process takes flight once the requirements and parameter are set. Below is a TE Membrane tensile fabric design process flow.
Stage 1 : Data gathering and taking notes of the requirements, highlights and features for the fabric structure. This will determine the type of approach needed to be carried out. TE Membrane and our clients, architect and designer sit down together to discuss every detail of the plan, elevation, form and design as desired. Geographical areas and loads conditions are also tackled during this stage to learn the requirement of the tensile fabric structure.
Stage 2 : Sketch and drawing for visual presentation. CAD, freeform software and 3D Modelling and other advanced technology and software are used to generate the exact form of the tensile fabric structure. TE Membrane hold in-house architectural design and engineering that creates the actual form, shape and suitability of the fabric structure.
Stage 3 : Initial sketch approval and freeform 3D concept approval. Clients review the plan and approve the general concept of the design. Once the design is approved, our architects and engineers will proceed to perform the finite element analysis by introducing it to series of loads and weather resistances calculation, tensile stress will be generated at this stage. All preliminary calculations such as reaction loads and steel sizes will be generated this stage.
Stage 4 : Final tensile fabric roof approval. Clients review the final plan and design. Any revisions and minor or major alterations can be made during this stage as well.
