Abstract

Roofing is becoming a common practice in big sport stadiums. One of the main loads roof have to face is wind loads. The uniqueness of these constructions makes it difficult to directly use the construction codes to calculate the wind loads. Because of that, wind tunnel tests are advisable. In this case, the proposed roof over one of the bleachers of the Balaídos stadium in Vigo, Spain has been studied. The roof consists in 11 curved segments, which have been independently studied.
