Structure of the building
Steel roof structure in a spherical shell form, spanning 112 m × 154 m (367 ft × 505 ft) plan dimensions and with two planar faces at each side overall forms a shuttle like geometry. Main loadbearing supports are 6 reinforced concrete twin columns with an r/c support mass which holds the tail section of the roof form. Head section of the roof is fixed to the existing structure.
Steel trusses have fix supports on top of twin columns. Top and bottom chords are made up of circular hollow sections which forms a triangular shape. Three main trusses and secondary circular girders resting on them build up the skeleton while trapezoidal steel sheet covers and completes the roof system. Steel roof and its supports are separate from tribune structure constituting an independent structure by itself.
For the 2010 FIBA World Championship, most of the 16,000 seats were in temporary stands built on top of the permanent stands. Sinan Erdem Dome will host the 2013 WTA Tour Championships.
