I am finalising the design of my latest tent. It will be a prototype which, if all goes well, I will rework using dyneema.
So, I have a theory about raising (levitating
the tent. The design (and calculations) are based on all wall edges coming to the ground - not allowing for catenary curves. My theory is... if I design for, say 900mm poles (at the head end), then put in 950 poles there will be a 50mm air circulation gap all around. A single wall design needs air movement so I could even go to 1000mm - with 100mm gap.
A rough sketch...
The logic seems sound but I wonder if you all have any comments on this?
Theory plan two: I am keeping wall to floor tub distances to a minimum so will have an extra grommet (on a strap) so that I can alter the angle of the pole to drop it back down to zero(ish) ground clearance when there is wind and wet.
>> a kind of lowrider hydraulic jackup system
I would appreciate any comments on the theory. thx
