In response to Jeff Crossier's inquiry, an o-l-l-l-l-l-l-d reference (1969) is, "Design Fundamentals of Cable Roof Structures," a U. S. Steel publication written by, J. B. Scalzi, W. Podolny, and W. C. Teng. There is a structural engineering firm in Ohio that apparently does the engineering for one of the fabric structure companies (which one, I don't know). Their name is, H. B. Daugherty, P.E. Consulting Engineers 6776 Providence St. P. O. Box 2854 Whitehouse, Ohio 43571 Voice: (419) 877-0243 Fax: (419) 877-9488 This is current as of May, 1996. I got involved in determining if parts of an existing structure would be adequate to anchor ***TREMENDOUS*** forces from the canopy. I would imagine that any fabric structure company would have their own engineers to do the design and provide the SEOR with the forces to the foundation or to other structures and I would suggest that the design be left up to them. I toyed with a cable structure many years ago when an eccentric, very wealthy widow wanted to build an aviary on her property. Displacement geometry, including cable elongation, on the cables has a tremendous effect on cable forces and this had to be accounted for by iteration. (This was B.C. [Before Computers]). She changed her mind and the aviary was never built, so my total experience with cable structures has been in doing only the preliminay calculations.
