Tensile structure reinforcement for vehicle bodies

  • This invention relates to space frame structure for a bus constructed using tensile member to reduce the weight;
  • Space frame structure for the bus may comprise a lattice structure/ladder structure with a floor frame, two side frames and a roof/top frame;
  • Structural members/arms of the different frame may be joined together with a flexible joint;
  • The space frame may comprise a plurality of tensile members mounted in thefirst side frame, the second side frame and the top frame.
