ETFE: Technology and Design

ETFE foil has lately develop into a tremendous fabric for the cladding of technologically subtle and leading edge constructions. This fabric is particularly skinny and light-weight and, whilst utilized in air-filled cushion assemblies, has huge, immense energy and a variety of adaptive environmental attributes. ETFE cushion enclosures turned recognized basically via Grimshaw Architects Eden undertaking and Herzog + de Meuron s Allianz area, and they're getting used at the remarkable swimming stadium for the 2008 Olympic video games in Beijing, the most important ETFE development envelope within the world so a long way.

37) Similarly, a second-order tensor Sij is called objective if its property to map an objective vector onto an objective vector remains valid also for the assumed coordinate transformation. 39) we observe that the velocity is not an objective vector field. Similarly, it can be shown that neither the acceleration at nor the velocity gradient Lij are objective tensors. 43) From this property Dij derives its characterization as the ‘rate of the deformation’. Obviously the spin tensor Wij is not objective.

Relative to a fixed-in-space Cartesian coordinate system a particle X has the coordinates ξi and xi in C(0) and C, respectively. 1 Initial and current configuration of a deforming solid. 1. 25). 5) where δij is the Kronecker delta. e. 2). Accordingly, Rij is called the rotation tensor and Uij the right-stretching tensor. As already mentioned, the deformation gradient gives the change of the metric of the be two neighboring material points in C(0), which deformed body.
