A space frame or space structure is a truss-like, lightweight rigid structure constructed from interlocking struts in a geometric pattern. Space frames can be used to span large areas with few interior supports. Like the truss, a space frame is strong because of the inherent rigidity of the triangle; flexing loads (bending mo-ments) are transmitted as tension and compression loads along the length of each strut.
Space Frames can span large spatial area without intermediate columns by interlocking struts in a geometric pattern which is extremely useful in projects like Coal, Cement & Sugar Storage Domes, Sports Stadiums, Airports, and Shopping Malls etc. It can also form architectural marvels in long Skywalks, Pedestrian Bridges and can add aesthetic, rigidity and long life to smaller span structures like Metro Railway Stations, Swimming Pool covers, Toll Gates, Border Security Gates, Petrol / Gas Stations.
