Abstract
A design methodology for high pressure, inflatable structures is proposed. The inflatable structure may be partially confined inside large diameter conduits and tunnels. The design addresses the main structural requirements of the system, namely, fabric strength, geometric stability, and axial stability. The proposed design methodology is based on the concept of limit states. Load and resistance factors are identified for all the stochastic variables participating in the structural design equati...
