The effect of dome properties on design of the axial symmetric cylindrical wall

Aylin Ece Kayabekir

Abstract


The usage of computer software in civil engineering has expanded in last decades. Many general-purpose and special-purpose commercial programs perform a very important function, especially at the design stage. In this study, a computer program is introduced for the analysis and design of the axial symmetric cylindrical wall considering the dome effects. Analysis processes are carried out according to Flexibility theory with long wall assumption and during the reinforced concrete (RC) design of the wall, ACI 318-Building code requirements for structural concrete are considered. In numerical investigation, the effects of the dome properties (thickness and height) on the analysis and design of the wall are investigated by performing a totally 72 case analyzes. These cases include different support condition at bottom of the wall, wall heights, dome thicknesses and heights. According to analysis results, it is concluded that effects of dome thickness and heights on the wall on the wall are very limited.
