Suspension    Domes

An examination of large-span bridges suggests that the designs best at producing large spans are all likely to involve cable stabilisation.

A number of cable-stabilised roof structures have been constructed.

These will be divided here into three categories:

Catenary-suspension roofs
Roof suspended from a catenary cable
Arch-suspension roofs
Roof suspended from an arch
Cable-stayed roofs
Other suspended roof structures
