Abstract:

The paper presents discussion on the issues related to design and use of tensioned fabric roofing and occurring in the winter. In case such structures are used as permanent, all-season ones, the issues of snow load and the methods of snow removal arise. The importance of the issue is emphasized by the fact that errors were not avoided even in major projects, such as the modernization of Dresden Central Railway Station or the Gelsenkirchen stadium.
