by I.K. Silverman,

Serial Information: Journal of the Engineering Mechanics Division, 1957, Vol. 83, Issue 3, Pg. 1-17

Document Type: Journal Paper


Behavior of suspended structure under lateral loads is shown to depend upon values of three dimensionless parameters; curves presented for moment, shear, and deflection coefficients as function of one of parameters; spring constant for small vibrations in horizontal plane also derived.
