Title: Can Plastic Models Represent the Buckling Behavior of Reinforced Concrete Shells?
Author(s): William A. Litle, Frank J. Forcier, and P. Harvey Griggs
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 265-288
Keywords: acrylic resins; analogies; buckling; cracking (fracturing); cylindrical shells; deflection; domes (strucrtural forms); fabrication; models; mortars (material); polymethyl methacrylate; reinforced concrete; shells (structural forms); simulation
Abstract:A previous study of the buckling of a cylindrical shell roof is noted wherein plastic models did not reproduce well the buckling behavior of reinfroced mortar shells. In this paper the results of tests on four spherical domes, two made of plastic and two of reinforced mortar, are presented.
