VTechWorks staff will be away for the Thanksgiving holiday beginning at noon on Wednesday, November 22, through Friday, November 24, and will not be replying to requests during this time. Thank you for your patience, and happy holidays!
Geometrically nonlinear finite element analysis of a lattice dome
The geometry and the finite element method modelling of a lattice dome is presented.
Linear analyses and geometrically nonlinear analyses of the dome are performed. In
addition, a buckling load prediction method is studied and extended to the multiple
The results obtained from linear analyses are checked against the requirements of
NDS, National Design Standard.
