The Roof of the East Kilbride Swimming Pool

The paper describes the design development of the roof from simple circular arches of 340 ft-span to a double curved concrete shell of 235 ft-span held between fanned raking struts providing a total span between abutments of 324 ft. Reference is made to special problems in design, particularly that of secondary stresses due to shortening, and the various contributing factors are discussed in detail together with the reasons for adopting post-tensioning in the foundation ties and in the roof. Site works are described with emphasis placed on the somewhat unusual problems and difficulties of post-tensioning operations in stressing and grouting the 380 ftlong tie beams and the 230 ft-long curved roof tendons.
