Design of Reinforced Concrete Domes

  • M. Farshad
Part of the Solid Mechanics and Its Applications book series (SMIA, volume 16)


Domes have synclastic shell surfaces with positive Gaussian curvature. They are strong and structurally stable. Dome roofs can be constructed from steel, various fiber reinforced composites, and reinforced concrete materials. Precast shells made of these materials have also been constructed successfully.
