by Francis J. Maher,

Serial Information: Journal of the Structural Division, 1966, Vol. 92, Issue 5, Pg. 79-96

Document Type: Journal Paper


Test data are presented for wind load distribution on hemispheres and four domes of varying span that are to rise ratio-supported by cylinders of several heights. Two tests for domes on a truncated cone are also presented. The results are given in the form of pressure coefficient contour maps of the surface.
