A skeletal dome structure composed of a plurality of arcuate support beams joined at their upper ends to a central hub and radiating outwardly and downwardly to terminate at points of engagement with a support surface. Each support beam is composed of an elongated lightweight core sandwiched between upper and lower strips of a material having high tensile and compressive strength. In making the dome, each beam is first preassembled to the extent that the core thereof is secured to a first strip, that strip is then attached at one end to the central hub, ...
A method for forming a skeletal dome structure in situ, comprising the steps of arranging a plurality of substantially straight, elongated, and flexible lower strips of high compressive and tensile strength about a central hub with said lower strips disposed generally horizontally and radiating outwardly from said hub; each of said lower strips having an inner end located adjacent said hub and an outer end remote from said hub; securing a straight and horizontally-elongated flexible core to an upper surface of each of said lower strips, each lower strip ...
