Study on Sustainable Design in Space Structures

The paper’s sustainable design approach encourages a greater commitment to environmental stewardship and conservation by achieving an optimal balance of cost, environmental, societal, and human benefits while meeting the goal and function of the intended space structure. The goal of this work is to create principles that might be used in the design of a space structure in order to obtain the best total lifetime performance possible. More than inert hunks of metal, glass, and cloth, space buildings are alive. Every inch of available area As structural engineers, we design structures like children—children who are conceived with a passionate vision of their form, structure, and purpose, nurtured through the schematic design phase and the development of construction documents, and cared for during the labour pains of plan check corrections, requests for information, shop drawing review, and construction observation. Our space structures evolve, fulfil important functions throughout their lives, and finally grow old and die, just like children. The design of a sustainable space structure is a much more difficult and cross-disciplinary process than in the past, so it’s critical that it’s viewed as an interdisciplinary effort.
