Wolfgang Warisch Ingenieurbüro für Membranbau und Tragwerksplanung

Service for Membrane constructions and shell constructions of Dipl.Ing.(FH) Wolfgang Warisch structural consulting engineers 

  • Design
  • Form finding
  • Static analysis
  • Engineering
  • Calculation of patterning of the membrane
  • 3D Visualization
  • Consulting with the constructor and architect
  • Expert assessments
  • Material tests
  • Building physics of membrane constructions

    In cooperation with the IMS e.V. we are dealing with expert assessments, material tests (also biaxial tests) and building physics.



Dipl.Ing.(FH) Wolfgang Warisch structural consulting engineers offers individual partial services as well as entire services, for example the entire offer under the project "equestrian coverings with membrane structures”. It is an interesting alternative to conventional buildings for riding schools, granges, mews and horse breeding.

Coverings against the sun or acoustic membranes, carports or coverings for show places of car markets – as specialists in the field of modern membrane constructions we are your personal contact partner. Please get inspired by the various possibilities of membrane constructions.For further information you can reach us under the telephone number +49 8234 4141-0.

Request for services and the design of membrane constructions

Request for services and the design of membrane constructions are more complicated compared to conventional materials like brickwork, reinforced concrete and steel.
With the mode of action of double curved surfaces of membrane constructions we can "find” the perfect state of equilibrium of force and form – Form finding in pre-stressed conditions.
For a realistic assessment of the final shape of the membrane a 3D visualization of the design is indispensable. After a satisfying form finding for the client a static analysis will be made, that means some wind and/or snow load will be put on the membrane and the resulting forces will be determined statically. The dimensioning of all devices like membrane, steel constructions and foundations will be made to defined standards. In the following Engineering the planning and calculation of all details and anchorage points take place.
Last step would be the patterning of the membrane as precondition for the fabricator of the membrane.
