Aim of the program

It is observed that there is a great demand for membrane and lightweight structures in its different forms since it can be used for covering huge open spaces with minimal intervention and minimal construction time. Especially in tropical and sun-drenched countries the market is growing rapidly. The technologies of textile building have been advanced and developed enough to be used as important building material in construction all over the world. But only a few experienced people and companies are able to finally implement these challenging projects.

The Tensile Intense Program is created to impart a concentrated overview and universal understanding for the entire process of textile building, starting with the design, following the steps of analysis, detailing, dimensioning, calculating and ending with the erection of a membrane and lightweight structure.

The Certificate is an introductory part of the international Certificate Study program as well as the Master Program of Membrane structures of the Anhalt University to which it can be extended.
