Rhino membrane Rhino Membrane is a powerful plugin for Rhinoceros able to relax any kind of mesh following the rules of prestressed a membranes and minimal surfaces. The user has to fix non movable mesh nodes or boundary edges, assign desired pretension with internal pressure (for pneumatic cushions) and ask for the final result . Simple and one on of the most powerful form-finding tools available on market. Developed by Gerry D'Anza & Johannes Linhard with help & support from Prof.Bletzinger over URS theory, RhinoMembrane gives accurate stress field results. New features : Tensegrity and Force Density method implemented

Tensile structure roof in Sambil Barquisimeto mall Client Place Venezuela Principal sizes L 140m W 76m Cost € 1.600.000,00

The central hall (230x430 feet) of Sambil Barquisimeto fits the contour of the guitar-like shape which prevails in the image design of the mall. Six poles and the central “spine”: – 28 feet wide, glass-covered truss, (which originally included also a circular steel framed base for a geodesic cupola in structural glass) – support a cable net system that anchors the whole structure to the concrete roof. A PVC membrane teflon coated (Ferrari) spans on both sides of the spine. In the original project, transparent ETFE cones covered the connection to the poles.

TU Twente Enschede Client

Place Holland Principal sizes 900 m2

Cost â‚Ź 230.000,00

Poly-Ned placed a tensile structure, which is an architectural addition to the new main square at the TU Twente. This tensile structure of 900 m2 is not just a dry run but also symbolically connects the various buildings of the campus together. A tensile structure is the name for a tensioned fabric in the shape of a canopy. Poly-Ned designs, manufactures and assembles these objects themselves. Own engineers, draftsmen and technicians take care of each other the entire process of drawing fray to tightening the last nut.

Over the courtyard of the Librije's Hotel in Zwolle Poly-Ned realised a cover / tensioned structure. The square is thus functional throughout the year.

Credits Project

The unique feature of this structure is that it can be easily (de)mounted. The structure can be tensioned with the help of an impressive hydraulic cylinder (length 8 m!), which is sunk a centrally placed ornament. In this ornament, the whole structure, membrane and liners, are stored.

In December 2002 there was a big flank eruption on Monte Etna. South Vent had become a giant cinder cone, one of the biggest features of Etna. It fed a voluminous lava flow which in those days damaged the buildings near Rifugio Sapienza. The project consists of construction of the new shelter, with a laminated wood structure and a cross at the base isolation system.
