Abstract:Main structure of the Dallas Memorial Auditorium has 204 ft diameter, doubly curved roof cast of lightweight concrete in 16 separate pie-shaped sections; roof is supported from 45-ft rigid frames that cantilever from 70-ft columns arranged at the periphery of the auditorium, providing a 300 ft diameter clear area. Paper recounts details and problems of forming the columns, cantilevers, and roof sections as well as general considerations governing their design. Problem of cambering forms to compensate for anticipated deflection is treated, along with proportioning, mixing, and placing of both the lightweight and normal weight concrete.
