while making a tent like shelter systems how to decide the position joints in space where the two poles will intersect? Answered

I have several other questions in mind...
1. since the PVC conduits are bent during the process of building tents, some bending stresses will be induced..how do we ensure that the structure won't fail?

2. Can someone suggest some modification in shelter systems dome design to make it more stable but not adding much complexity and not adding much assembly time?

3.Can someone give a construction plan of a dome similar to shelter systems, different pipe sizes and position of joints??

Shelter Systems have patents on their dome technology, which has probably expired by now. You can always look at the filing.

Shelter Systems domes are tensegrity structures - the poles are actually straight, and bent into shape as you put the tent up.
