  1. 1. Advanced construction and materials Class – 4 Unit –III B.Arch VII sem
  2. 2. The space structures may take the form of:  Two-dimensional grids.  Cylindrical vaults.  Domes.
  3. 3. Construction techniques for erection of space frames  Space frame, from a geometrical viewpoint, consists of two plane grids, parallel to each other, which form the upper and lower layers of the space frame.  These two plane frames (grids) are connected to each other with the use of diagonal bars.  The external loads are distributed amongst the two parallel layers and the diagonal bars which connect them.
  4. 4. The Structural System The structural system is characterized by the combination of three main components:  member  node  connection
  5. 5. Members  Hollow sections are essential for a number of reasons.  In particular, tubular sections are generally used because of their large and uniform radius of gyration.
  6. 6. Nodes  The dream of a 'universal' node has not yet been realised.  Several parameters govern the design of nodes.  Nodes can be connected mainly by :  welding,  bolting or  by special fabrication.
  7. 7. Nodes  Some authorities prefer welding for large spans, even if it is difficult to guarantee the quality of welds in site.  One of the determining factors in the choice of nodes is the number of members to be assembled.  The regularity of geometry resulting from the node determines the entire geometry of the structure.
  8. 8. Five 'kinds' of nodes may be identified: Plated and folded nodes are usually connected to the member ends by means of bolted connections, but also welding can be done. The node is a critical element when evaluating the cost of spatial structures: one node for 2,5- 3,0m2 would seem to be an economical solution.
  9. 9. Connections  The node-to-member joining system determines how the ends of the members must be treated. Five processes may be described, for example:  Straight cutting  Profiled cutting  Squashed and drilled  Addition of a connection plate  Special fixing: threading, welding, or bolt crushing Different treatments of member ends
  10. 10. Methods of Fabrication and Erection Methods used may be listed in three categories:  Erection of separate members, each one lifted into position and connected to the work already assembled.  Erection of sub-assemblies: this is an intermediate stage whereby the members are connected in sub-assemblies, either in the factory or on site. The sub-assemblies are lifted into final position and connected to the work already assembled.  Lifting of the whole space structure, which is assembled on the ground on site. Various methods may be considered ranging from the use of vertical construction parts as lifting masts to cranes.
  11. 11. The choice of one of these three methods depends on: 1. The nature of the project in terms of type of structure and size. 2. Operational conditions: actual layout of the site, available means of lifting, transport costs, experience, etc. 3. Safety.
  12. 12. Lifting the whole space frame has the following advantages:  The greater part of the work is carried out on the ground, thus aiding control of the operation, especially the making of welded joints.  The use of heavy hoisting machinery is required for a shorter period, which may reduce final costs.  In some cases, the structure with other equipment attached may be lifted together.
  13. 13.  A new approach has been used in Barcelona for the erection of the dome of the Olympic Palace.  It involves the fabrication of the dome on the ground in five portions which are temporarily pinned to each other  The central portion is then lifted and the remaining segments of the dome locked in the final position.  Different methods of execution may be considered depending on the type of structure and place of installation.  There is no limit to the list of solutions. The erection method chosen depends on the imagination and know-how of the designer within a particular context. Novel method of dome erection
  14. 14. Membrane structures  Membrane structures are spatial structures made out of tensioned membranes.  The structural use of membranes can be divided into pneumatic structures, tensile membrane structures, and cable domes.  In these three kinds of structure, membranes work together with cables, columns and other construction members to find a form.
  15. 15.  High strength steel cables have been used extensively over the past twenty five years for space roof structures.  There are two different possibilities when using steel cables in roof structures.  The first possibility, consists of using the cables only for suspension of the main roof structure, which can be either conventional, e.g. beams, cantilevers, etc., or a space frame.  In this case, the main roof structure, instead of being supported, is actually suspended from steel cables above the roof, which transmit the tensile forces to appropriate anchorages .They are cable-stayed roofs.
  16. 16.  There are many examples of this type of construction used as industrial buildings where the roof structure, either as a single or as a double cantilever, is suspended from cables, which in turn are anchored on robust pylons above the roof level.  In this type of construction, the cables behave as simple suspension elements, while the roof structure itself behaves like a normal load resisting unit, subject to moments, shears, and other kinds of action effect.  It is expected that the suspending elements remain in tension, even under wind uplift, due to the dead weight of the roof.
  17. 17.  The second possibility is represented by those roof structures where the steel cables are effective members of the roof structure itself, and not just conveyors of forces from the structure to the anchorages.  In this type of construction (tension structures), the cables themselves resist the various external loads.  Their particular behaviour has deeply influenced the structural forms used and has imposed new methods of execution.
  18. 18. Tension structures may be categorised as: (a) Single-layer cable systems (b) Double-layer prestressed cable truss systems (c) Prestressed tensile membrane systems
  19. 19. Tension structures are used to cover stadia, arenas, swimming pools, recreation halls and other buildings where a large area for public assembly and exceptional aesthetic effect are required simultaneously.

  21. 21. CONCLUDING SUMMARY  Standard industrial forms can be varied to provide structures capable of spanning considerable distances.  Curved forms, arches or domes, provide further possibilities.  Cable staying extends the spanning possibilities of conventional trusses or truss frames.  Tensile structures open up a large repertoire of dynamic structural possibilities for medium to large-span structures.  Tensile structures may be planar or anticlastic, membrane or cable net structures.
  22. 22. Cable structures Cable structure, Form of long-span structure that is subject to tension and uses suspension cables for support. Highly efficient, cable structures include  the suspension bridge,  the cable-stayed roof, and  The bicycle-wheel roof.
  23. 23.  The graceful curve of the huge main cables of a suspension bridge is almost a catenary, the shape assumed by any string or cable suspended freely between two points.  The cable-stayed roof is supported from above by steel cables radiating downward from masts that rise above roof level.  The bicycle-wheel roof involves two layers of tension cables radiating from an inner tension ring and an outer compression ring, which in turn is supported by columns.
  24. 24.  Cable, is an assemblage of three or more ropes twisted together for extra strength or a rope made by twisting together several strands of metal wire.  The first successful stranded iron wire rope was developed in 1831–34 by Wilhelm Albert, a mining official of Clausthal in the Harz Mountains in Saxony.  High-tensile steel wire was introduced during the 1880s, and steel is now the predominant metal used for wire rope.
