Serial Information: Journal of the Engineering Mechanics Division, 1956, Vol. 82, Issue 3, Pg. 1-16

Document Type: Journal Paper


Amounts of bracing force required for eight representative cases of beams and columns quantitatively derived; some of cases are solved exactly by direct solution of basic differential equations, while others are solved approximately by energy methods; numerical examples show that order of magnitude of bracing forces is small and falls within limited range.
