Design Considerations for a Geodesic Dome – A Critical Review

Geodesic dome is a spherical structures that is formed of five Platonic geometry used in construction, although apparently the dome has complex geometry, they have quick and easy way for constructing. In this paper, how to build a simple dome Geodesic is described in a simple word, which says the possibility of holding it in any space and with any little materials, is possible. A man made structure becomes stronger as its size is increased. They find application in the roofing of buildings. Geodesic spheres are arrangements of polygons in great circles that approximate a true sphere. Of all structures built from linear elements, a Geodesic Dome has the highest ratio of enclosed volume to weight. Keywords - Geodesic spheres; Platonic geometry
