Numerical Simulation of Cantilever Erection Procedure of Lattice Shell Structures
This paper presented the construction technique of a double-layer spherical lattice shell with a diameter of 66m, while the small-unit cantilever erection method is adopted. The variations of internal forces during the different erection simulation procedures are also indicated. Meanwhile some suggestions are proposed to actual construction.
