Abstract: In this paper, a non-linear structural analysis software with pro-processing and post-recessing function is proposed by the author. The software incorporating the functions of the structural analysis and geometrical design of Tensegrity structures. Using this software, Cable Dome is analyzed as a prototype, a comprehensive study on the structural behavior of Tensegrity domes is presented in detail. Design methods of Tensegrity domes were proposed. Based on the analysis, optimizing design was performed. Several…
