The Structural Design and Construction of the National Stadium, Jamaica

The paper describes the structural design and construction of the National Stadium built in Jamaica primarily for the Central American and Caribbean Garncs held in 1962. The most interesting feature is the grandstand and the design of the arch frames and cantilever roof is described in detail. The considerations of differential deflexions which affected the design and methods of construction are discussed and calculations for the design of the arch frames as a two-hinged arch are given in the Appendix.
