RE: Dome Shaped Roof

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
A good, but very theoretical (as in partial differential equations), reference is "Thin Shell Concrete Structures" by David P. Billington.  It's published by McGraw-Hill in their Classic Textbook Reissue Series, so it may be hard to get a hold of.  You may have to look for a used copy at a technical book store on the web, or something.  It has some information about wind loads on cylinders, domes, hyperboloids, etc.

Subject: Dome Shaped Roof

I would just like to ask how to load a dome shaped roof for wind, from the leeward side to the sides to the windward side.
Any literature or codes that I can read to help me with this?
