A complete analysis is presented for the problem of cantilever cylindrical shells (clamped at the base and free at the top) subjected to wind pressures. Donnell's shell theory...

Column Supported by Side-Beams
A buckling analysis for an axially compressed column fixed at one end and supported by two equal side-by-side cantilever beams showed that if the other end of the column is free, the buckling...

Wind Loads for National Airlines Hangar in Miami
A wind tunnel test was conducted which provides a rational basis upon which the design of the cantilever portion of the hangar roof and the roof covering can be based. The test results...

Stability of Monosymmetric Beams and Cantilevers
There is a shortage of information on the elastic flexural-torsional buckling of monosymmetric cantilevers, while some differences of opinion exist on the effects of monosymmetry. The...

Design of Cable-Stayed Girder Bridges
Cable-stayed girder bridges offer a soothing appearance to many landscapes and are economical for bridge spans ranging from 750 ft. to about 1500 ft. They are suitable for cantilever method...
