Paper Title:
Sensitivity Analysis of Manufacture Errors for Cable Dome
  Abstract

Construction control is the key technique for cable dome. During the actual engineering, however, it is difficult to ensure no difference between the real prestress distribution and the designed value due to existed construction errors. The practical problem for cable dome construction is to determine how much is allowable errors limit. To solve the problem, sensitivity analysis of manufacture errors of bearing and cable length are carried out in this paper. The random errors are simulated by Monte Carlo method. In a numerical model of cable dome with the diameter of 62m, the sensitivity of effect of bearing and cable length manufacture errors on structural performance is analyzed. Numerical results show that the manufacture errors of radial bearing, hoop cable 2, ridge cable 3, diagonal cable 3 and hoop cable 1 should be strictly controlled. Besides, the maximum allowable errors are proposed referring to the domestic existing specifications.
