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
