      Asadi, Hastia; Uhlemann, Jörg; Stegmaier, Thomas; Von Arnim, Volkmar; Stranghöner, Natalie (CIMNE, 2017)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      The design process of membrane buildings and structural fabrics has to consider changes of the material properties due to long-term exposure to the environment. For the structural engineer the loss of tensile strength in ...
