Abstract:

The objective of this design manual is to provide industry and Government suppliers with design information to fabricate functional and reliable air-supported structures at the lowest possible weight. The data and design information presented are based on wind tunnel tests and analytical determinations reported in another publication. Design information is given for spherical cylindrical air-supported tents. The data in general are presented in nondimensional coefficient form and, therefore, are applicable to full scale structures within the range of parameters tested. Design information is presented as charts and tables on tent aerodynamic force and moment coefficient. Anchor and guideline coefficients, structural deflections, material stresses, packaged volume, and weight.
