Abstract:

Study of simple span, aluminum folded plate model consisting of 3 north-light shells is presented; values of longitudinal stresses, transverse moments, and vertical joint deflections are given; analytical results obtained by ordinary folded plate theory, theory of elasticity, and elementary beam theory are compared with experimental results.
