Performance characteristics of compound curved sandwich shell structures
Nasir, Azhar, Thambiratnam, David, & Button, Clifford (2012) Performance characteristics of compound curved sandwich shell structures. Journal of the International Association for Shell and Spatial Structures, 53(171), pp. 19-30.
Sandwich shells have recently emerged as aesthetically pleasing, efficient and economical structural systems, with a number of applications. They combine the advantages of sandwich layer technology together with those of shell action. With different materials and thicknesses used in the sandwich layers, their performance characteristics largely remain un-quantified and there are no guidelines at present for their design. This research paper provides verification, through finite element modeling and testing, for the application of this technology to dome styled dwellings with research currently being conducted into the further application to roofing and floor structures.
