Intermediate stiffeners may...
Page 648 - In general, however, cement is a more economical reinforcement than steel. Therefore, for ordinary constructions it does not seem advantageous to use in combination with a rich concrete more than 2 or 3 per cent of longitudinal steel. "4. The amount of data presented on tests of columns subjected to repeated or time loadings is far too small to warrant drawing definite conclusions as to the limiting stress for repeated loadings which will hold true for all kinds of columns and for an infinite...
Page 266 - W be the weight of the compression member whose length is/, . (2) When the moment of P produces bending of the same sign with the transverse load W, the plus sign is to be used in eq. (2), and the minus sign when those moments are opposite. If the line of action of P coincides with the axis of the member, the moment Pe disappears from eq. (2). Again...
Page 726 - ... force on rotation about an axis, we can assume that the force is applied in a plane perpendicular to the axis of rotation. If the force is not so applied, only the component force in such a plane need be considered. We now consider the relation between the effectiveness of a force in producing rotation and the distance of its line of action from the axis of rotation. It is convenient for this purpose to define a quantity called the lever arm: The lever arm of a force is the perpendicular distance...
