ABSTRACT: Recent developments in the application of reticulated or shell-type construction are presented. Five general methods of analysis are given: (1) the stiffness approach; (2) continuum shell analogy; (3) concepts of discrete field mechanics; (4) split rigidity concepts; and (5) the use of models. Analysis, member loading, physical properties, edge effects, general buckling, and local buckling of domed structures are described. Equations and computer methods that have been used in the design of domed reticulated space structures are given. Suggestions are made for future research and development for these types of structures.
