Diameters and dome strength
The results show that increasing the diameter of the dome (or the dimension D of the arch) while maintaining its height will make the construction weaker, due to vertical stress.
|Measurement||Support strength of dome for increasing dome diameter|
|Dome diameter D (mm)||511||609||707||803||901|
|Collapse weight (kg)||8.6||8||7.1||5.9||4.3|
The above results were then plotted onto a graph, as shown below.
