Abstract—Form-finding analysis is carried out and presented
for half-Costa tensioned membrane structure model in
YZ-plane. There are three models presented, each with
different center part of the half-Costa boundaries. Nonlinear
analysis method is adopted for the form-finding analysis.
Half-Costa tensioned membrane models in YZ-plane with
different geometry have been found in a good agreement with
least square error of total warp and fill stress deviation. Results
obtained from this study would become a reference to select
suitable parameters to increase the performance of sustainable
tensioned membrane structure in the form of half-Costa in
YZ-plane respected to their boundary condition. These
resource efficient structures have the ability to prevent further
damage to the environment hence these models presented are
good selective forms for design engineer and architect to ponder
Index Terms—Center part, form-finding, half-Costa YZ-plane, nonlinear analysis method.
