    Abstract

    The best known isotropic membrane stress state is a soap film. However, if we allow the value of the isotropic stress to vary from point to point then the surface can carry gravity loads, either as a hanging form in tension, or as a masonry shell in compression. The paper describes the theory of isotropic membrane stress under gravity load and introduces a particle method for its numerical simulation for the form finding of shell structures.
