Concrete Folded Plate Roofs


  • C. Wilby, PhD, BSc, CEng, FICE, FIStructE, Consultant and Emeritus Professor of the Schools of Civil and Structural Engineering, University of Bradford, UK

Concrete folded plate roofs used to cover large open expanses of space can pose complex design problems soluble only through detailed mathematical analysis. This book introduces the engineer to practical schemes and practicalities, and goes on to provide multitudes of useful design tables, which allow linear interpolation, for a large range of various schemes of folded plate roofs to help the engineer with his designs. Design examples using both SI and USA (British Imperial) units are provided using these tables.
