  • Design Principles and Analysis of Thin Concrete Shells, Domes and Folders

    By Iakov Iskhakov, Yuri Ribakov

    One of the main goals of a good and effective structural design is to decrease, as far as possible, the self-weight of structures, because they must carry the service load. This is especially important for reinforced concrete (RC) structures, as the self-weight of the material is substantial. For…
