  • The optimum geometry design of geodesic domes presents difficulty due to the fact that the height of the dome keeps on changing during the design process. This in turn makes it necessary to automate the computation of the coordinates of joints in the dome when the height of crown changes. The algorithm presented in this study carries out the optimum geometry design of single layer geodesic domes. It treats the height of the crown as design variable in addition to the cross-sectional… CONTINUE READING
