To Span 250m in Earthquake Prone Zone

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I am working on the design of an olympic stadium in an extremely earthquake
prone
zone (magnitude 7.5 was experienced in 1989). Any ideas on the best way to
span 250m for the supporting detail for the permanent roof. Suspension -like
tension cables are not appropriate for vertical acceleration during
earthquakes.
Is an arch shaped truss the only solution ??

Thanks,
