The world is facing a very challenging and difficult civil engineering structures such as geodesic structures. Quite, often geodesic structures are more helpful in area with more earth quake and stroms. A wide amount of research is going on in the field of design of geodesic domes. it is also noted that the geodesic domes are fully capable of resisting wind loads due to its shape. The geodesic is also an eco friendly. In this present paper, a geodesic dome is modelled using staad.pro and analysed for wind loads. After being analyzed ,the maximum axial forces, maximum bending moment ,maximum deflection of geodesic dome will be found out.
