Test results on uniform, unsymmetrical, and concentrated loads; graphical presentation of stresses and deflection tendencies for diaphragm to edge beam action, vertical and horizontal actions of edge beams, and actions of main convex and concave parabolas; large bending stresses in edge beams, in shell, and between shell and edge beams were observed showing deviations from membrane theory that existed during all loading conditions.
