VERIFICATION OF UMBRELLA VAULT REVISED SECTION


A. OBJECTIVE
To verify and check by calculation of umbrella vault from CHS 88.9x9mm as indicated in
the IDC report reference no. IDC-CGD-RPT-SB-QNMS-001 rev.D page 35 to the revised
section of CHS 114.3x8mm grade S275.

B. LOADS FROM PLAXIS 2D ANALYSIS


The figures below show the results in Maximum Shear Forces, Bending Moments, and
Axial Forces of umbrella vault member.
