Main stadium structures of summer Olympic Games: efficiency assessment of their physical performances

2017-01-29
Main stadium structures of Summer Olympic Games are large scale structures which are designed in such a way to accommodate thousands of spectators, a crowded athlete population and many sports competitions during Olympic Games. There are many written documents on some architectural and technological features of those structures; however there is scarcity of knowledge on assessment of their physical performances/capacities. The study was shaped to examine the inherent physical performances of main stadiums for summer Olympic Games and to better understand their appropriateness, specifically potentials and limitations, for international and regional prospective events.
