SP-110: Hyperbolic Paraboloid Shells
Editor: Jack Christiansen
Appears on pages(s):
Offering both utility and beauty, the hyperbolic paraboloid (HP) shell came to the attention of American designers in the early 1950's. Since that time, many hyperbolic paraboloid structures have been built both in the United States and around the world. This state-of-the-art report on hyperbolic paraboloids is the culmination of over ten years of research and fact gathering. Effort has been devoted to developing analysis and design data and techniques for hyperbolic paraboloid concrete shells, especially for umbrella, gable and saddle shells. "Hyperbolic Paraboloid Shells" offers the latest information on topics such as: bending theory, saddle shells, hyperbolic paraboloid performance and cost, groined vaults, membrane analysis and construction.
