This study investigates the structural safety of typical greenhouse to be utilized for developing plant factory. New long-span greenhouse systems were presented according to the results of structural analyses performed by finite-element program, ABAQUS. Reasonable values of design loads such as wind and snow loads in the Greenhouse Design Specifications (1995) were applied to check the new greenhouse systems.It was concluded that the new greenhouse systems were consistently safe enough to resist to both wind load and snow load. The new greenhouse system can be used to make simple and economic plant factory.
