Abstract
The current prototype’s key contribution to the field of light-weight structures is that it is the first time that a pure tensegrity ring has been used in place of a compression ring. This design features a cladding structure for a sports arena, which consist of a ring-shaped outer section and a central roof structure. The ring-shaped outer section of the stadium consists of a tensegrity structure, which uses textile membranes in a place of conventional tension cables to bear the tensile forc...
