Round Robin Exercise 3 aims at collating wind tunnel and CFD data for the basic shapes of tensioned surface structures.
A ‘standardised results data form’ is specified to be able to present, compare and interpolate the results.

Working Group 5 launches a Round Robin Exercise ‘wind pressure coefficients on doubly curved shapes’.
The aim is to extend the current Eurocode with a section on the design of membrane structures, especially in the field of wind loading on some ‘typical’ membrane shapes.

Science and Policy Report (SaP-Report): CEN TC250 decided in its meeting of the 20th of November 2015 that the Science and Policy Report (SaP-Report) ‘Prospect for European guidance for the Structural Design of Tensile Membrane Structures’ will be published by JRC (Joint Research Centre).
This version will be made available to the European Standardisation Bodies for evaluation as ‘basis’ for the Technical Specifications. Comments can be given during 6 months. After this period of 6 months CEN TC250 will decide if – taking the comments into account – the elaboration of the Technical Specifications can start or not (decision expected by November 2016).
