Abstract
Spoke tensile structure developed from bicycle wheel spokes based on spoked wheel principle, this system with beautiful shape and reasonable force is often used for large-span space structure. According to different roof shapes, the spoke tensile structure is divided into inner concave-shaped and outer convex-shaped. poke tensile structures arrangement is flexible, through study on the structural system extension means , the structural forms is varied and expanded, and ultimately get dozens of forms such architecture. Meanwhile, the structural members display architectural beauty, and achieve the perfect combination of architecture and structures. While spoke tension structure is applied to the whole roof structure, study spoke tension structure closed roof system may realize the structure form, and analyze of the mechanical properties of various structural forms.
