A Shear Lag Anomaly
This technical note reports an interesting phenomenon associated with shear lag in the flanges of box girders that is quite contrary to well established ideas concerning this subject....

Buckling of Cooling Towers
The main goal of this study is to provide a clearer basis for judging the succeding safety of wind-loaded cantilever hyperboloidal shells. New predictions for cooling tower buckling are...

The Analysis of Wall Supports to Stabilize Slopes

Simplified Analysis of Edge Stiffened Cantilever Slabs
A realistic analysis of edge stiffened cantilever slabs having linearly varying thickness in one direction (and subjected to concentrated loads) is usually done by rigorous methods that...

Fracture Methods in Cement Composites
Contoured double cantilever beams 24 in. (610 mm) long were tested to evaluate the fracture properties of asbestos cement, plain mortar and steel fiber reinforced mortar. The crack extension,...

Effect of Openings on Lateral Buckling of Beams
The present paper describes a series of test on slender model cantilever beams containing a set of rectangular or circular openings along the center line of the beam, in which the size...

Flexure of Laminated Beams
Using the principle of potential energy, two fourth order differential equations are developed to describe the flexure of a rectangular three layered laminated beam using the calculus...

Parrotts Ferry Bridge: Pioneer in Lightweight, Pumped Concrete
Spanning the Stanislaus River in Northern California, this bridge includes a 640-ft center span that is the world's longest span in lightweight concrete and the longest bridge...

Minimum-Weight Design of Nonuniform Beams
This note reports the results of an investigation of the minimum-weight plastic design of a propped cantilever beam of nonuniform cross section. The design of a propped cantilever occurs...

Bending of Laminated Cantilever Beams with Interlayer Slip
This paper deals with the load-deformation responses of laminated cantilever beams with the consideration of interlayer slip. In the analysis, a slip criterion was assumed that slip between...

Torsional Stiffening of I-Girder Webs
The torsional response of box stiffened I-sections has been predicted by two analytical procedures. These methods utilize basic torsion theory and compatibility relationships. One method...

Analysis of Orthotropic Cylindrical Cantilever Shells
Cylindrical cantilever orthotropic shells are analyzed when subjected to wind loading or eccentric discharge of the stored solids, or both. The analysis is based on a rigorous system of...

Elementary Theory in Linearly Tapered Beams
With the use of a generalized Kirchhoff hypothesis in which the transverse shear strain in cylindrical coordinates is assumed to be zero, a beam theory is developed for linearly tapered...

Generalized Orthogonality Relation for Pie Sectors
The paper presents a new generalized orthogonality relation for the biharmonic eigenfunctions developed for all admissible combinations of homogeneous boundary conditions in stresses and...

Erection Strength Adequacy of Long Truss Cantilevers
Structural steelwork design specifications commonly limit erection stresses to fixed multiples of design stresses. This type of limitation is not necessarily adequate for controlling the...

Cantilever Cylindrical Shells with Arbitrary Loadings

Postbuckling Response of Cantilever Columns

Rigid Plastic Beam Model for Pipe Whip Analysis
A method is developed for the analysis of a rigid-plastic propped cantilever beam with a gap at the support for use in the study of pipe whip. The blowdown thrust is assumed to be a suddenly...

World's Third Longest Cantilever Bridge
This report includes the planning, design and construction procedure of the world's third longest double deck, cantilever bridge, Osaka Port Bridge, which was completed in...

Minimum Weights for Circular Tube Cantilever Beams
Theoretical investigations in the area of optimum structural design have increased dramatically during the past decade. The idea of finding a structure of minimum weight has long intrigued...
