Adaptability and Structural Design of Stadia
2008 (English)Book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this master's thesis is to analyse recent developments in the design of stadia. In particular, the aim to make stadia adaptable in terms of use led to new challenges for the structural design. On one side, in order to increase event days per year, there are multi-purpose stadia for various sports, as well as for non-sporting events. Movable structures for seating tiers, pitches, and roofs developed for stadia that are suitable for various events. The design of these structures is discussed in this thesis. On the other side, major events require stadia with pre-determined capacities, which may be unsuitable for a long-term use. For this purpose, demountable structures for spectator accommodation are used to increase the capacity just temporary for the duration of a major event. Furthermore, general concepts for the structural design of stands and roofs are discussed. In addition, case studies of recent developments for major events, multi-purpose stadia, and stadia in the UK are analysed. Due to a study in the UK, there are British guidelines discussed in this thesis.
