Configuration, Classification and Development of Large-Span Annular Tensile Cable-Truss Structures
The stuctural characteristics of large-span annular tensile calbe-truss structural system are introduced. Configuration and classification method for large-span annular tensile calbe-truss structural system are studied based on existing projects and researches, and then several new structural forms are put forward. A series of new composite spatial structures composed of the annular tensile canopy structure and other spatial structure are proposed. The study on classification issues should be beneficial to form-selection, design and construction of such structural system.
