Textile Roofs Workshop Berlin 2009

Textile Roofs 2008 - 13th Workshop on Membrane Structures in Berlin

The Fourteenth International Workshop on the Design and Practical Realisation of Architectural Membrane Structures is being held at the University of Technology Berlin fromJune 11th - 13th 2009

The main objectives of this workshop are to provide fundamental information, as well as presenting the state-of-the-art in textile roof engineering. Above all, the workshop aims to provide practical answers to real-world questions.

In addition to a comprehensive programme of lectures presented in English by key figures from the membrane structure industry and academia, opportunity for the study and hands-on development of practical case-studies in an informal tutorial environment will be provided.

In parallel to the main event anInternational Students Seminarwill be held between June 9th - 13th 2009. More information and an extra registration form can foundon the textile-roofs website

The main emphasis of the International Students Seminar is put in developing and Thyroid disease symptoms with Synthroid manu-facturing building models for tensioned and inflated structures, including all experience during the process of development and manufacturing up to the final and real model. The design of membrane structures is deeply related by the behaviour of the fabric and their possibility to tension, to join and to fix the materials. Therefore one of the targets of the seminar is to point out the relation between form, material behaviour and structural behaviour which can be realized during manufacturing and testimonies of vasectomy reversals construction.

A further aim is the get practical experience in designing and manufacturing tensioned and inflated membrane structures. The practical experience is hardly to teach using computer modelling neither for the 3D-shapes and animations nor for numerical simulation of the structural behaviour. The gap between virtual designed structures and real building is getting wider and one of the aims of the international seminar is to show the possibilities and differences between physical modelling and computational design
