Academic Papers

The Monolithic Dome Institute has added a new Academic Papers section to its website that contains white papers, theses, monographs, dissertations, and other scholarly articles related to the monolithic dome, concrete dome, thin-shell, and curved architecture industry. The new section includes papers such as Disaster Survivability of Thin-Shell Concrete Dome Structures: Experience and Practice and Concrete Dome Structures and Extreme Wind Loads: The Design of Community Shelters.

The mission of the Monolithic Dome Institute is to teach and train individuals and organizations about the benefits and construction of the monolithic dome. The Monolithic Dome Institute’s website includes news, projects, and topics not only about the monolithic dome, but on all concrete domes, including the concrete-only monolithic Ecoshell, plus thin-shells, geodesic domes, and other curved structures.
