This report provides information on the construction of structural concrete shells using an inflated form. Major facets of the construction process are covered, including foundations, inflation, monitoring, and backup systems. Other aspects, such as the geometric variations of inflated forms, thickness of polyurethane foam, and mixture proportions for shotcrete, are also considered.
