The Design Recommendations for ETFE foil Structures are a product of over 4 years work by TensiNet ETFE Working group. TensiNet is an association or platform for all parties interested in tensioned membrane structures. It is a multi-disciplinary association, conforming to the initial objectives of the EU-funded thematic network (2001-2004). The Design recommendations for ETFE foil structures have been established as a separate Annex of the European Design Guide for Tensile Surface Structures, published by the TensiNet Association in 2004.

Although ETFE is a widely used material, it is still a young material compared to other materials as steel, wood and concrete. A European standard is not available nor is extensive research on mechanical properties. These design recommendations present current knowledge and compare different design concepts. Therewith it is a ‘state-of-the-art’ report, not intending to be comprehensive. However, as TensiNet is involved in the preparation of a Eurocode on Membrane Structures (CEN/TC250 WG5), these recommendations will be used as input for the Eurocode on Membrane Structures. This Guide recommends safety requirements which need to be considered for the design, calculation, manufacture, installation, maintenance, operation, examination and testing of ETFE foil structures. This can be applied to double- and multi-layer ETFE cushion structures or single layer tensioned ETFE membrane structures. The field of application of this Guide includes all kinds of ETFE covered structures. The content of this Guide brings together the different existing concepts as far as possible.

Proceeding TensiNet Symposium 2013 [RE]THINKING Lightweight structures

The proceedings contain the full papers presented at the TensiNet Symposium 2013 in Istanbul, Contributions are clustered around several topics under the general theme [RE]THINKING lightweight structures. Papers on ETFE show that this material is becoming increasingly important for tensioned surface structures.

Several papers report on recently built STIMULATING and EYE-CATCHING PROJECTS and are oriented towards architects, designers and decision makers.

Papers on ADVANCED CONCEPTS inspire visions for daring applications in the future, while contributions on PNEUMATIC STRUCTURES illustrate how to apply air as a lightweight building material.

Papers on [RE]THINKING ANALYSIS & MATERIALS address design methods as well as material characterization and properties.

Finally the papers in the field of LIFE CYCLE ASSESSMENT for Membrane Materials and Structures indicate that building with textiles can from the point of view of sustainability compete with more conventional materials.

The papers give an up to date report of know-how and examples in the field of tensioned surface structures.
