The second edition of this book provides structural engineers with a concise introduction to the architectural, structural and technological aspects of cable roofs, and supplies sufficient information for engineers to carry out their own designs. The improved methods for generating wind and earthquake histories have been included as the trend in modern design codes seem increasingly to require that dynamic response of other forms of non-linear structures such as guyed masts is considered at the design stage. Other additions include an expansion of the chapter on dynamic analysis into three separate chapters, one dealing with frequency domain analysis of weakly non-linear structures, another with time domain analysis of more non-linear structures, and a third with the level and mathematical modelling of damping.
