Title: Structural Analysis of Geodesic Domes
Author: Marek Kubic, Supervised by: Charles Augarde
Publication: April 29, 2009, Durham University School of Engineering
File: PDF 3.6MB, 68 Pages


Description:

Taken from Abstract: A project to house 40 families in the Maharashtra region of India which began in January 2005 was halted shortly after it commenced due to concerns over the loading applied to a series of geodesic domes which form a large portion of the whole complex. Vigyan Ashram, the organisation that manufactures the domes, issued a request for the development of an affordable computer program that would allow them to model the structural response of the domes. The ensuing research into the design of the geodesic domes and the development of a spreadsheet based finite element package are the subject of this dissertation.

Structural Analysis of Geodesic Domes was written by Marek Kubik, under supervisory of Charles Augarde.
