Not sure about dome analysis, but RISA-3D is a good general purpose
Structural Analysis program but not sure if it has a dome model generator
yet. Might check their website (www.risatech.com) or tech support e-mail.
The windows version has excellent report generation capabilities over their
earlier DOS versions (print out in table format like a word document).
Prefer RISA-3D over M-Strudl, Staad, and others... can not say I have seen
the newest versions though.
