DOME DESIGN: Neither Intricate Nor Difficult

Ruben A. Gomez, PE

Domes are one of the strongest known forms in nature and this truth is attested by the unique shape of the egg. Domes can survive the most violent acts of nature and emerge unscathed from the experience.

In this course we have chosen the spherical dome for two reasons, it is the simplest to design and the simplest to layout and build because of its constant radius. A real life case was used as a prototype and the details and experiences have been candidly given without reservations and as they took place during the construction process.

Computation samples are presented using plain mathematics and trigonometry without the intricacies of differential equations or integral calculus as they abundantly appear in most of text books and treatises.

This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
