Special Subjects - Membrane Engineering

Building with textile materials has been one of the tasks of engineers for more than 60 years. During this time, spectacular buildings have been created, which clearly differ from concrete, steel or wooden structures due to their very own design language, both visually and in the way they are processed.

The requirements arising from the impending climatic change will necessitate lightweight structural solutions in order to be able to continue to maintain a livable urban space in the short term. The introduction of the Eurocode provides the normative framework for membrane construction and highlights the increasing need for trained professionals.

The course is divided into four advanced modules:

AC-001: Structural Design II
AC-002: Membrane Materials II
AC-003: Structural Analysis II
AC-004: Construction Management II
