Domes have been used throughout the ages as a housing form, or an element of a housing form (roof structure). Whenever large column free circular areas are to be covered with roof, domes become one of the easiest choices. Surface area required to cover huge space by a dome structure is minimal. Due to this, construction material usage becomes less and this feature leads to economy. In the present paper, an RCC dome with ring beam at the base has been analysed and designed through developing a C language computer program. Only dead and imposed loads are considered. Concentrated load acting at the apex is kept as further scope of study. Necessary input values in the program when given, the cost of construction of the dome is readily obtained.
