Abstract:The H. W. Moore Equipment Co. building, a reinforced concrete structure in Denver, Colo., utilized two types of folded plate shells: a discontinuous Z-shaped shell arranged to provide a north light clerestory, and a continuous series of inverted V-shapes. The latter shell was designed to carry two 15-ton cranes on the roof system. The analysis of stresses made use of the latest refinements involving the effect of deflection on the transverse stresses in the slabs. The roof plates were constructed with both conventional and movable forms, and some structural elements were precast on the ground and raised into place.
