In addition, shell forms contain a number of functional, economic and aesthetic virtues that make them logical choices for applications to building structures. Login to My Structurae. This selection hypebolic especially true when substantial loads such as high internal pressures are involved.

Edge effects are confined to a narrow zone near the edge or around a zone of discontinuity that may be present as praaboloid result of geometry changes. Tests on a one-tenth scale model of a hyperbolic paraboloid shell roof.

Furthermore, these structures provide a clean inner surface, often in a pleasant geometric shape.

They have good fire-resistance qualities. List of parabolooid structures in this category. Click here to become an online Journal subscriber.

For repetitive structures and for those needing long, column-free spans, reinforced concrete shell roofs have often been chosen. The shell structures selected for these applications are simple forms, most frequently combinations of various shells of revolution such as cylinders, cones, spheres, and for the pressure vessels the torospherical or ellipsoidal shapes, because of their ability to respond to most loads by a membrane state over the major area of the shell. Church of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal.


Shell structures mobilize geometry to activate both the membrane and the flexural internal force systems to efficiently support any distributed loads applied to those structures. The International Concrete Abstracts Portal is an ACI led collaboration with leading technical organizations from within the international concrete industry and offers the most comprehensive collection of published concrete abstracts.

Inelastic behaviour of reinforced concrete hyperbolic paraboloid saddle shell. Based primarily on their efficiency, these geometric structural forms are employed in a number of industrial applications such as pressure vessels, containment structures, etc.

By proper orientation or shape selection, glass areas can be placed so that natural lighting can be directed onto all or nearly all the covered ground plan.
