Membrane architecture: the seventh established building material.
Designing reliable and sustainable structures for the urban environment.
The 7th International Symposium TensiNet will take place from 7th until 9th June 2023 in Nantes on the campus of the Faculty of Sciences and Techniques.
This conference, organised by the GeM, Nantes Université and the association TensiNet, will bring together academic and industrial participants.
3 main topics will be covered :
- STRUCTURAL MEMBRANE: contemporary, innovative, adaptive daring and impactful solutions
In Jules Verne’s hometown, with its focus on innovation and futuristic issues, textile architecture can provide answers to current problems, especially for ever denser cities and for a world that is always on the move.(responsible Marijke Mollaert, Vrije Universiteit Brussel)
- TENSIONED MEMBRANE STRUCTURES: the seventh building material
Recent advances in the design of membrane structures, development of a Eurocode dedicated to structural membranes: the word membrane must now be part of the daily vocabulary of architects, designers and decision-makers, and the specificities of membrane design must be part of the knowledge of all structural engineers.((responsible Jean-Christophe Thomas, Nantes Université)
- STRUCTURAL MEMBRANE: an answer to issues of the 21st century
Lightweight design, well-being, environmental impact, energy and acoustic performance, life cycle of materials and structures, end of life of membrane structures: these keywords are part of the current and future construction challenges and are an important message for the younger generations.(responsible Carol Monticelli, Politechnico di Milano)
