Abstract

Funicular shells are thin doubly curved shallow shells which are in compression under dead weight due to their shape. In this study, an analytical approach is employed to consider forced linear vibration of concrete funicular shells with rectangular base under impulse loads based on shallow shells theory. Two boundary conditions simply supported and clamped, both are considered. The solution is obtained by Lagrangian approach. Accuracy of the results has been considered by comparing the results with those of finite element method. The results indicate that under impulse loads, stresses in funicular shells are not only compressive, but also tensile stresses are formed.
