Structural Design of Roofs over the Sports Arenas for the 1972 Olympic Games: Some Problems of Prestressed Cable Net Structures

The cable net structure for the 1972 Olympics is the largest and most complicated of its kind. After a brief outline of its history and some basic remarks on the loadbearing characteristics of such structures, the fundamental problems which the engineer encounters during the design and detailing of these unconventional structures and the proposals for their solution are described, using the Olympic roof as an example. Professor Dr. Ing. Fritz Leonhardt and Dr. Ing J. Schlaich
