Research Status and Prospects of Cable Domes
Advances in the research on cable domes were summarized and reviewed, such as structural improvements and innovation, prestressed mode and optimize designing of cable dome structure, dynamic and wind resistance performance analysis, construction technology, model experiment and sensitivity analysis. Some topics worthy further research were proposed, including seismic property study, improvement and innovation in construction techniques and methods, fire resistance study, stiffness analysis of structures, general design methods and software. This work will provide a meaningful reference for the design and application of cable domes.
