A live load test was performed on this dome in Provo, Utah, using an incredible, 360,000 pounds of concrete block. The test showed no measurable deflection of the dome’s surface. This was Dr. Wilson’s first dome, an earth-formed, affined transformation of an ellipse, that was 160’ x 240’ x 40’ in size.
