Tensile Membrane Structure Architecture



Deployable structures are structures capable of transforming in shape from a small package size to a large working size with automation or manually. Membranes structures are capable of undergo deployment under with a framed peripheral structure. The deployable structure finds its place in various applications of various fields. In this paper let us discuss various applications of deployable structures in civil engineering structures.
