Abstract

This paper focuses on the structural effectiveness of earth sheltered thin shell concrete dome systems. The discussion is limited to 50-foot, 4-inch thick concrete spherical domes under 3 feet of soil cover. Stress levels and stability are evaluated for dome-ring and dome-ring-wall structural systems having 'shallowness indices' (ratio of span to rise) ranging between two (hemispherical) and twenty.
