The paper proposes a method for analyzing large deformation of membrane structures by replacing the structures with elements composed line-members. The replacement has the advantage that the structural model is completely compression-free, so that the analysis always has a unique equilibrium solution without falling into multi equilibrium problems and the method is stable and easy even for how large deformation.
