The prefabricated Space Frame systems are composed of bar and node members which are designed to be fully pre-fabricated in our production facility and then to be erected at site.
The Space Frame elements are analysed according to the Matrix – Displacement Method. In the course of this analysis, the loads are applied only to the nodes. The bars are designed to respond to only axial tension or pressure. Loads; which might create a momentum or are perpendicular to the bars are not allowed to be applied to the bar. Should there exist such a load, it should be mentioned at the design phase and should be incorporated in the contract.
The static calculations are based on the loads which are obligatory and are used in all technical specifications (self load of the Space Frame, self load of the purlins, self load of the cladding, snow load, wind load, thermal loads, earthquake loads and the loads declared by the client and specified in the contract (functional loads, live load, service load, lighting, installations, air conditioning, suspended ceiling, catwalk, special loads with spot impact).
