What are the properties of tensile fabric structures?
Tensile strength : Tensile strength is known to be the basic indicator of the relative strength. It is perhaps fundamental for the architectural fabrics that primarily function in tension.
Tear strength : If a fabric breaks down, then tear strength is quite important to consider. In general, it does so by tearing.
Flame retardancy : The fabric which has flame-retardant coating present in it is likely to withstand the hot point source quite easily. However, if there is a large ignition source present, then chances are that it can still get burned.
Flexibility : Tensile fabric structure can be very well used in the building construction as it is made using flexible material.
Adhesion strength : It is the measure of the bond strength between the coating and the base material. It is quite useful in measuring the welded joints strength for connecting the fabric strips into the fabricated assembly.
