Research: First Post

The focus of my research is tensile structures supported by cable nets. There are 2 main types of these structures: those with nets held between rigid boundaries (the Yale Ice Hockey Rink for one: http://bit.ly/bANA6A) and more tent-like structures held up by masts and edge cables (like the Munich Olympic Stadium: http://bit.ly/9VpKLn) The strength and stability of cable net structures comes from the cables being held in a double-curved shape.

  1. Harrison,

    You may want to edit this post adding some actual content. It is scant on information and seems to only serve as a placeholder. Please, remember this is not a personal blog, but a an actual work vehicle to explain your ideas and connect with the rest of the team.
