Pneumatic Structures" deals for the most part with surfaces loaded by tractive forces.

A tensile structure is a construction of elements carrying only tension and no compression or bending. The term tensile should not be confused with tensegrity, which is a structural form with both tension and compression elements. Tensile structures are the most common type of thin-shell structures. Most tensile structures are supported by some form of compression or bending elements, such as masts (as in The O2, formerly the Millennium Dome), compression rings or beams.

Frei Otto Wins 2015 Pritzker Prize - Roofing for main sports facilities in the Munich Olympic Park for the 1972 Summer Olympics, Munich, Germany. Frei Otto, architect behind some of the most important structures and engineering ideas of the last century, has died just two weeks before he was to receive the Pritzker Prize-the award that people often describe as the Nobel Prize for architecture.

In one of the final interviews given before his passing, Frei Otto tells how coming of age in the years surrounding WWII influenced his work in tensile architecture. Along with Buckminster "Bucky" Fuller, Walter Gropius, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Richard Neutra, Frei Otto was a visionary. His approach to form finding to solve structural as well as social problems is the foundation for modern architecture.

For the first time in this edition, Frei Otto's two studies of nonrigid structures (Pneumatic Structures and Cables, Nets, and Membranes) are available in one volume. Pneumatic Structures deals for the most part with surfaces loaded by tractive forces. Special membranes, of high tensile strength, are made semi-rigid by means of differences of enclosed air or fluid pressure and can serve as roofings, halls, silos, dams, or for any other application where ease and rapidity of construction and transportation are essential. This section is illustrated with 1,660 numbered photographs and line drawings, including many striking photographs of both models and existing implements and structures. In Cables, Nets, and Membranes the subject of nonrigid architectural structures is continued with a detailed investigation of structures under tensile loads, of which suspension bridges and tents are the most commonly known examples. Like pneumatic structures, tensile structures have the advantages of mobility, light weight, ease and speed of erection, and low cost.

The book categorizes the field of tensile structures starting from blown bubbles. Extensive structural mathematics are provided, but in separate chapters. I as particularly interested in reinforced fabric elevated water storage tanks, which could provide a lower cost infrastructure for our aging and smaller water systems.

I have the book. This monumental work is into two major volumns. The first one was copywrited in 1962, the other volumn was added to the orginal in 1965. The book is edited by Friel Otto and contains not only his work, but the work other leaders in the forfront of this new form of architecture. Volumn 1 Friel Otto; Pneumatic Structures Rudoff Trostel; Calculation of Membranes Friel Otto; Tension Anchoring of the Foundation
Volumn 2 Friel Otto: Basic Concept and Survey of Tensile Structures Friedrich-Karl Schleyer; Analysis of Cables, Cable Net and Cable Structures The first section of book contains an indepth look of modeling using soap bubbles. Early experiments with balloons are presented showing how the early enginnering concepts were developed and tested. Many early examples of the use of the domes form for human habitation are also included. Large scale projects are also presented with shapes of the sturctures going into square,hexigons, and other auxilliary forms are presented. The next major part of this section containg cable netting and the models presented are truly facinating for there possible large scale appications. In the next part you will find a presentation on of all things,hoses. This topic is expanded into presenation of how hoses can be turned in load bearing members of a structure. Semicylinders and there real time applications are presented.The volumn continues with indebth presentations on Internal Drainage, Cushion Structures as well some very interesting experiments. I read and reread this section many times to try to understand all of the information presented especially in experiment home construction. The next section I really enjoyed. The volumn is nothing but how loading caculated is you like applied physics and engineering that section for you. I got understood much of it but in my case, it has been too many year since calculusII.
The second voulmn contain a hitory, development and classification of Tensile Structures. In this part Friel Otto takes you though the history of this form of architecture and mixes into modeling with concrete application showing large scale projects. I find this part of the volumn really helpful in undering how Mr. Otto thinks though his application problems from his basic modeling. His foundations details really helped me in the work I was doing at the time. The mix of the theoretical with the real time applications is very unique. I always had to remember this work was started in the late 50's and all of the work I was reading about was published in the mid-sixties. The last part of this volum was the enginnering calculations for Tensile Structures. I am still trying understand much of the information presented. My recomendations, is you like this architectural form and the math which drives it; this book is one you must read. When you read this book and look at the beautiful works of Horst Berger in Light Structures, this book by, Freil Otto and others is the historical basis on which Mr. Berger and other architects have continued the architecture form of Tensile Structures.
You can get it used, I did it just takes time. Some college library have it, but you will never get throught it one sitting.TjS
