Engineering tensed roofs
To construct tensed roofs for exterior spaces on a cruise ship
many aspects have to be taken into account. As said before ceiling
cloth and other materials of construction have to resist wind
forces occurring at sea. Various scenario's taking all kinds of
wind forces into account have been computed. Also the materials of
construction must be sea-water resistant.
