Form-Finding of Cable Domes with Specified Stresses

Abstract

A mathematical programming problem is proposed for form-finding of cable domes. The optimality conditions of the problem are derived to guarantee that the optimal solution coincides with the self-equilibrium configuration of the cable dome with specified member axial forces. The number of independent axial forces is investigated under the geometrical… (More)
