Abstract

Pier Luigi Nervi's first series of RC airplane hangars, built at Orvieto after 1935, are known for their cast in situ ribbed vault with crisscrossing elements. The paper aims to point out how a series of parallel experiments in steel construction and in airplane engineering also partly dealt with Nervi's objectives; and these experiments, alongside the developments in RC thin shell construction, need to be brought to attention in discussing Nervi's achievements.
