Thin Shell Concrete Structure

Thin Shell Concrete Structure

Thin Shell Concrete Structure

Hello guys,
I have a received a new project to design which contains 3D thin shell roofs, and i have not so much experience about how to design and check such structures, i have attached a picture showing the structure.
Does anyone have any paper/code/reference/guidance to design these tyoe of structure ? And is there any easy and fase way to model this structure using SAP ?
Thank you for your help.

RE: Thin Shell Concrete Structure

I am not sure that the attached picture is what you intended to post. It is very complex and no information is given regarding scale. If there are several structures involved, please provide a picture of a representative one with some scale given for clarity.

RE: Thin Shell Concrete Structure

There's whole engineering firms that specialize in this type structure. If your boss isn't an expert on this, he/she shouldn't be giving the work to you.
