What are the differences between space frame and steel structure? What types of buildings are space frame suitable to be used in


Space frame is a new type of roof truss load-bearing structure, and it is multiple statically indeterminate structure system. Space frame structure is a spatial structure connected by several pipe and node ball upon some regular pattern of geometric figure. It changes the ordinary frame structure of the general plane stress state, and it can bear the loads from all sides, even though the individual pipe in damage, it can automatically adjust the member forces, to maintain structural safety.   

Steel structure is classified by structural material; space frame is classified by the structural form.

Space frame materials are steel, aluminum alloy, stainless steel, etc., in the practical use, steel is mainly used.

Space frame structure can be used for the roof or wall as the following building:
