Document Type: Book - Manual of Practice


Design of Cylindrical Concrete Shell Roofs covers a wide range of information concerning the design of various types of cylindrical concrete shell roofs. The manual consists essentially of two distinct parts. The first part deals with the practical design of cylindrical shell roofs. The second part, contained in Appendix II, is devoted to the derivation of the mathematical theory of this type of shell. Topics covered in this manual include history of shell design theories; design procedure; design examples, long shells, simply supported; design example, long shells, continuous over support; design example, short shell, simply supported; design of transverse stiffeners; the effect of continuity of shell and transverse stiffener; and the elastic stability of shells.
