Abstract: Deformations and internal forces in the edge members of square hyperbolic paraboloids on two supports are calculated herein. Results are based on the bending theory of shallow elastic hyperbolic paraboloids; boundary conditions account for the flexibility of the supporting edge members. The behavior of a typical structure is describe and dimensionless design curves are provided for the general case.
