A systematic parametric study on the stiffness characteristics of compound space structures consisted of membranes and booms is presented. Using a tension field finite element code including membrane wrinkle effects, basic vibration characteristics of a square planar membrane structures are shown, and the effects of various conditions of applied tension between membrane and boom elements are discussed.
