Title: General Formulas for Membrane Stresses in Hyperbolic Paraboloidical Shells
Author(s): Felix Candela
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 353-372
Abstract:.Complementing a previous paper, a set of general formulas is presented for reinforced hyperbolic para- boloidical shells. These are those giving the membrane stresses in a shell loaded with its own weight but disposed in an arbitrary position in space. The better known formulas for a hyperbolic paraboloidical shell with its z axis vertical can be obtained as a special case of the general formulas. A numerical example of a groined vault on a square plan is also presented.
