Serial Information: Journal of the Structural Division, 1956, Vol. 82, Issue 2, Pg. 1-16

Document Type: Journal Paper


Analogous cantilevered truss method developed which embraces principles of internal and external work as produced by 1-lb load applied at end of structure after all reactions are removed and truss is cantilevered from wall support; analysis only requires one stress analysis of analogous cantilevered truss; procedure illustrated on example of Mississippi River bridge at Dubuque, Ia.
