Abstract
The design of six 120m domes for coal and salt storage applications is presented. The use of advanced design and manufacturing technology, as well as the novel erection techniques implemented, are discussed in detail. Particular emphasis is placed on the development of an optimum geometric solution and on the design of the large span roof structures to withstand typhoon type wind loads.
