A Space Frame is a truss like, lightweight rigid structure constructed from interlocking struts in a geometric pattern.They are the common feature in modern building construction. The Main Advantage of Space Frames over PEB is it utilize a multidirectional span, and are often used to accomplish long spans with few supports. They are strong because of the inherent rigidity of the triangular frame; flexing loads (bending moments) are transmitted as tension and compression loads along the length of each strut. The Space Frames are constructed of correlated members and nodes. The members and nodes are connected by high tensile bolts. The size of the members, nodes and high tensile bolts determined from the structural design. Space Frame building is a new alternative for the Pre Engineered Building Systems. SFBS are extremely rigid and stable when compared to any other existing structural systems. This is widely used in all most all the International Air Terminals. Suitable research and development was made to make this system applicable for Industrial / Institution applications. Its great aesthetic and sturdy appearance make it a good choice for architects and structural engineers to use SFBS in their projects.
The crucial part of architecture is the designing process in which a blue print of the structure is created, as it lays the foundation for a great structures. Creating an architectural structure requires immense creative and innovative skills to prepare a final design.The steel structure requires right analysis, material, construction technologies, and building systems to literally touch new heights. Steel Structures deal with the Design, Detailing, Construction, Maintenance, and Application of science to improve the steel materials. This helps in coming out with a range of exceptional Architectural Structures.
