Document Type: Journal Paper


Useful methods for solving design problems; analogy between deflections in simple beam and moments in analogous beam is pointed out wherein analogous beam, with its length corresponding to time, is loaded with unbalanced impulse applied to simple beam; analogy permits designer problem involving yield and motion; nondimensional characteristic number proposed.
