Methods of analysis of ribbed domes for fully symmetrical loading and general load conditions; members of structure are considered to be rigidly connected; under fully symmetrical loading dome is analyzed by direct application of Castigliano's theorem; for general load condition, internal forces and displacements are determined by superimposing effects of separate loads on individual ribs.
