Formulas for primary or membrane stresses in spherical domes and cones due to earthquake loading; earthquake forces are assumed to act in horizontal direction and in magnitude are equal to fraction of dead weight of structure itself; ordinary flexure formula may be used directly in determining meridional membrane stresses.
