# Ethics: Wisconsin Section Sparks Timely Discussion

*Eight case studies of ethical questions were debated in an audience participation panel format, at the 1975 Wisconsin Section ASCE Annual Meeting. The program was judged successful for...*

Torsion and Flexure of Closed Thin-Walled Beams

*In Ref. 2, a method of determining the stress and deformation of curved thin-walled beams having general loading and geometry was presented. This method considered the effects of warping...*

Hydraulic Representation of Flow Cross Sections

*Herein, the writers will show that the conveyance of the channel section calculated by multiple section representations is never less than that by a single section representation. Also,...*

Nonlinear Analysis of Uniformly Loaded Hexagonal Shells

*Current core design for Liquid Metal Fast Breeder Reactors (LMFBR) consists of a honey comb array of subassembly ducts containing fuel elements. The subassembly duct is typically a long...*

Frame Optimization Including Frequency Constraints

*The minimum weight optimum design of planar frame structures subject to frequency (or buckling) constraints, stress constraints, and member sizing constraints is covered by the finite...*

Inelastic Behavior of Wood Beam-Columns

*The pattern of stress distribution at failure in the critical cross-sectional area is mathmatically formulated on the basis of the actual stress-strain diagrams. The validity of the theoretical...*

Torsional Flutter of Rectangular Prisms

*Prismatic bar models tested are of rectangular cross section and are provided with different side ratios (depth/height) of 1, 2, 4, and 5. The position of axis of rotation of the model,...*

Boundary Shear in Channel with Flood Plain

*Shear stress distributions were measured around the periphery of a channel of complex cross section using Preston tube. The complex section consists of a deep channel and a flood plain....*

Creep and Shrinkage in Reactor Containment Shells

*The nonuniformity of creep and shrinkage caused by drying, and to a lesser extent by temperature gradients, causes significant self-straining in containment shells. This condition can...*

Curvilinearly Corrugated Plates in Shear

*Theoretical numerical data are presented for: (1) The in-plane shear stiffness of corrugated plates with discrete attachments to framing members at the ends of the corrugations; and (2)...*

Yaw Effects on Galloping Instability

*Quasisteady theory of galloping oscillations of slender prismatic structures, such as transmission lines, stay cables, etc. is extended to cover flows approaching at a yaw angle. From...*

Continuum Method for Overall Stability of Tall Asymmetric Buildings

*A solution for the buckling loads of asymmetric tall buildings with uniform cross section is presented, using a three-dimensional continuum model and including the effects due to normal...*

Pipeline Bridge Uses Timber Arches

*An arch bridge is utilized for the purpose of providing a river crossing for a water supply pipe. Tidal influence, an unfavorable riverbed situation complicated by estuarial and other...*

Critical-Flow Flumes with Complex Cross Section

Economic Shape of Trapezoidal Open Channel Sections with Freeboard

*It can be proved mathematically that the maximum flow by the Manning formula is an open channel of trapezoidal cross section of fixed side slopes and with a fixed freeboard occurs r=(5/2)fx/q,...*

Moment-Curvature for Elastoplastic Beams

*To determine the deflected line of a beam, it is necessary to know the relationship between the bending moment and the curvature. It the cross section is defined, the desire relationship...*

Elastic Stability Plates Subject to Elastic Constraints

*With the continuing effort to reduce weight in engineering structures, load-carrying members are being made more slender and of smaller total cross-sectional area by the application of...*

Critical Oxygen Deficit for Bank Outfall

*A two-dimensional equation for the mass balance of dissolved oxygen (DO) is integrated numerically to obtain the distribution of oxygen deficit resulting from a bank outfall of BOD in...*

Speed of Ships in Restricted Navigation Channels

*Ship model experiments confirm that orthodox screw-driven craft attain an apparent maximum or barrier speed in navigation channels of restricted width and depth, irrespective of available...*

Investigation of Dynamic Taping

*The preferred time for reading tape length when using dynamic taping is suggested, differing from the one previously proposed. The dynamic taping technique has been suggested as a method...*
