The sixth conference on “Textile Composites and Inflatable Structures” (Structural Membranes 2013) will be organised on 9-11 October 2013 in Munich, Germany.
The previous conferences of these series were held in Barcelona (Spain) on 30 June – 3 July 2003, in Stuttgart (Germany) on 2 - 4 October 2005, in Barcelona on 17 - 19 September 2007, in Stuttgart (Germany) on 5 - 7 October 2009 and in Barcelona on 5-7 October 2011
The objectives of Structural Membranes 2013 are to collect and disseminate state-of-the-art research and technology for design, analysis, construction and maintenance of textile and inflatable structures. The conference will address both the theoretical bases for structural analysis and the numerical algorithms necessary for efficient and robust computer implementation. A significant part of the conference will be devoted to discuss advances in new textile composites for applications in membrane and inflatable structures, as well as in innovative design, construction and maintenance procedures.
