DOME GEOMETRY: Frequency is the number of intersections from the center of one pentagon grouping to the next pentagon grouping.

  • A.I.'s 22’ and 27' domes are 2-frequency, 1/2 spheres on a 4' vertical riser.
  • A.I.'s 30’, 34’, 36', 40’, 45’, and 48' domes are 3-frequency, 3/8 spheres on a 4' vertical riser.
  • A.I.'s 60' domes are 4-frequency, 3/8 spheres on a 4' vertical riser.

American Ingenuity developed a dome that is approximately a one half sphere with a four foot tall riser wall. All of A.I.'s building plans and manufacturing specifications are for 3/8 domes on a four foot riser.

5/8 Domes:

  • A.I. finds it more practical to use a vertical 4' riser wall on all of its domes instead of designing its domes with the 5/8 geometry.
  • A.I.'s 30' dome turns out to be almost the same height as a 5/8 dome.
  • Also the 4' riser wall makes for a better shaped entryway and allows the dome to link with all of our other size domes.

Panel Sketch: The following is a panel sketch. Just to clarify we need to update this sketch to show the interior wall board. To learn more about the panel composition, click on Composition.
