Study Of Barrel Vault
The aim of this paper is to the study double layer barrel vault (DLBV) of 3D truss type. Barrel vault are popular
way of spanning large areas with few intermediate supports Truss type double layer barrel vault is simple structural
formation made up of network of longitudinal, transverse and braced member with curvature in one direction only. Truss
type barrel vault are analyzed and designed for different load such as live load , wind load and the combination of loads. The
truss type barrel vault is designed as per IS: 800-2007and analysis performed by using STAAD. Pro 2007. This work leads to
the comparison on span, maximum deflection, self-weight and cost criterions.
