Abstract:
Precast and cast-in-place reinforced concrete are used to frame the main roof structure of the University of Virginia’s new Field House. Precast elements are cast on site. Cast-in-place concrete and post-tensioned dowels provide monolithic behavior. The tension ring is post-tensioned by a wire wrapping system. Design and construction of this dome structure are described.
