The subterranean tension ring that exerts the balancing horizontal force on the abutments for the dome if Fig. 934 is 36sided, so each segment makes a 10o angle with the adjacent one (Fig. 970). Calculate the tension F that must exist in each segment so that the required force of 4.2 X 105 N can be exerted at each corner (Example 913).
