Abstract
The largest cabledome in China mainland is presented in this paper. The cabledome is built for the roof of arena of Tianjin University of Technology. It was arranged in ellipsoid plane with major axis of 102m and minor axis of 82m. A type combined Geiger and Levy form was adopted in the arrangement of cables. The outmost were in Geiger form and inner ones in Levy form. It was covered with membrane in the center and metal cladding in the periphery, so purlin system is applied to support the roof. Influence of purlin system and concrete structure are discussed.
