PRIMARY STRUCTURE DOME – EPS + SPRAYED CONCRETE For the construction of the dome a lot of auxiliary steel was needed ;curved steel trusses. They were attached to a central shaft which supported a stamp construction. The trusses stood at a distance of 3 meters. On the trusses they put EPS elements, which span from tension to tension. These were flat elements with a tapered shape. To get the right curve, the lower rows of elements are pressed outwards. For the shorter elements, that was not necessary. The spray concrete will ensure the correct curve. For the last top layer, an auxiliary construction is used in the form of a curved buckle that can move on the outer side of the dome.posted by Manon Coppens at 24.05.17 in Gent, 2017 LOGIN
