Pressure

Basic concepts In inflatable structures, they can be supported by air (large covered spaces of which membrane is hold in place by the overpressure of the interior with respect to the outside) or in the form of pneumatic structural elements inflated to pressures much higher than the previous ones like arches, bars, etc. . WinTess3 and pressure an action of pressure in WinTess3 program is applied through the window of surface loads which can …Read More

Pneumatic structures and internal pressure

One of the forms of pretensioning a membrane is to overpressure of the interior air. When a membrane is subjected to an air pressure has a certain curvature, this pressure causes the membrane a stress that is proportional to the curvature. So, if it’s a membrane of cylindrical shape, with a certain radius of curvature R, T tension caused by the internal pressure P will be T = P x …Read More
