Design Optimization of Observatory Dome Structure Using Finite Element Analysis
Sharath Kumar C S , Mohammed Imran, Dr. A R Anwar Khan & Nagabhushana
Observatories are used for tracing the celestial objects and other space applications. Generally these are mounted on high altitudes to prevent possible obstruction from other structures and radiofrequency disturbance. The observatory domes are mainly subjected to structural weight, wind loads, snow loads and seismic loads.
