Sydney Football Stadium

The design and construction of Sydney Football Stadium is described. The continuous cantilever roof is of the cable-stayed form but with stays designed to resist compression under uplift while remaining as slender as possible. Wind tunnel testing was performed to accurately assess the amount of uplift. Emphasis was placed on ease of construction throughout the design period. P.J. Thompson, W.C. Thomas and T.G.A. Carfrae
