Hyper Shapes Tensile Structure are very creative in design and vary in form in the 3 Dimensions. Hyper shape is also mentioned kite shaped structure. There structure gives the liberty of dimensions and shape allowing to take supports at single points on any available structure points on a building.
Hyper shape tensile Structures generally range from 3 m span upto 10 m. Further to this size the loads in the four vertices and the fabric (membrane) stresses go very high leading to requirement of a higher grade and costlier fabric, hence affecting the cost effectiveness of the structure.
The simple hyper deisgn consist of four corner plates with four cable edges and a single piece of fabric located in 3 dimensional arrangement. Fabric is designed using the concept of anticlastic curvature, two diagonally opposite vertices are up points and other two diagonally opposite points are low points.
