Interior Domed Ceiling

Title: Interior Domed Ceiling

A friend recently requested help in designing an interior circular domed ceiling for his house. The dome has a 8 ft radius and will support plaster. Assuming 16 quarter circular segments, he intends to use L-3x3x1/4. My initial impression is that using structural steel framing may be an overkill; that CFS studs may suffice. Is anyone aware of any design guidance for this type of structure?

TIA,
