ABSTRACT:

The Douera Stadium, which is designed to host a population of around 40,000, is located in Algiers, the capital of Algerian. The stadium is oval in shape with a roof projection size of approximately 240m x 203m. The lower stand is a concrete shear wall structure, and the roof is an open steel structure with a cantilever of 38m. Entrusted by the owner, the steel structure of the roof was optimized according to local and European codes. Special analyses were conducted respectively for the material, boundary (the supports are shelf products), structure layout and joints, using finite element softwares including SAP2000 and Abaqus. The results showed that the optimized structure fully meets the design requirements, saving about 1,500 tons of steel compared to the original scheme.
