|Abstract:||This paper is concerned with the membrane analysis and minimum weight design of submerged spherical domes. In addition to the hydrostatic pressure, loads acting on the dome include the self-weight and a skin cover load. By adopting a uniform strength design as governed by the Tresca yield condition, the variation of the shell thickness of spherical domes can be accurately defined by a power series. Based on a family of uniform strength designs associated with a given depth of water and the dome's base radius, we determine the optimal subtended angle 2α (and the optimal dome height) for the minimum weight design of submerged spherical domes. © 2006 ASCE.|
