The second edition of this book provides structural engineers with a concise introduction to the architectural, structural and technological aspects of cable roofs, and supplies sufficient information for engineers to carry out their own designs. The improved methods for generating wind and earthquake histories have been included as the trend in modern design codes seem increasingly to require that dynamic response of other forms of non-linear structures such as guyed masts is considered at the design stage.
Preface to the second edition Preface to the first edition Structural systems The nature and statistcal properties of wind The nature and statistical properties fo earthquakes Generation of wind and earthquake histories Freely hanging cables Static analysis of cable structures Dynamic analysis of weakly nonlinear cable roof structures: frequency domain analysis Dynamic analysis of nonlinear cable structures: time domain analysis Damping ratios and damping matrices Cables and terminals Tension anchors Cable beams and cable grids Cable net roofs Design considerations Index
