To improve the load-carrying capacity latticed shells, an innovative optimum method based on the concept of compression line is proposed in this paper. The basic principle of this method is using the character without moment in compression line. The arc line which forms the contour line of sphere and latticed shell structures is substituted by compression line in this method. Then the latticed shell structures are in the state of compression, and the influence of bending stress reduces greatly. As a result, the load-carrying capacity of the latticed shell structure is increased. Through the geometrical nonlinear analysis of a sunflower-patterned single-layer latticed shell structure with a span of 48m, it is found that the load-carrying capacity of the single-layer latticed shell structure can be improved by 5.48%. Furthermore, the results of 84 structural analyses of single-layer or double-layer sphere and cylinder latticed shell structures show that the optimum method is right and effective. And especially, it is applicable to single-layer latticed shell structure with rise-span ratio 1/5 with the max improvement 6.4% of load-carrying capacity.
