Ultimate Design of Hollow Thin-Walled Box Girders
The ultimate load characteristics of thin-walled box girders are investigated. The objective was to arrive at basic ultimate design criteria. Of primary importance was the development...

Torsion and Flexure of Curved, Thin-Walled Beams or Tubes
The investigation is concerned with the determination of the stresses and deformation of curved, open and closed cross-sectional, thin-walled beams or tubes taking into account the effects...

Effects of Inflow Condition on Hydraulic Jump
The particular aspect of the jump phenomenon considered in the paper concerns the condition of inflow, i.e., the state of flow development of the supercritical stream. Based on an unconventional...

Buckling of Lateral Restrained Thin-Walled Cantilevers of Open Cross Section
Herein is a method for determining the buckling load of lateral and torsional restrained thin walled cantilever of open cross section under uniform distributed axial load. It is assumed...

Linear Theory of Thin Rings
The equations governing small, elastostatic displacements of circular rings of arbitrary cross section are derived using the principle of virtual work. The equations are shown to be interpretable...

Brink Depth for Trapezoidal Broad-Crested Weir
Brink depth characteristics include the relationship between brink depth (yo) and critical depth for parallel flow (yc);...

Frequency Analysis of Thin-Walled Shear Walls
The coupled equations of motion for a thin-walled shear wall of monosymmetric cross section are presented based on thin-walled beam theory. An exact coupled solution is obtained by simultaneously...

Pressure Buckling of Ring Encased in Cavity
The buckling of a ring subjected to external pressure but supported by a rigid cavity wall is investigated using small deflection linear theory. It is assumed that the cavity wall moves...

Lateral Stability of Nonuniform Cantilevers
The lateral stability of nonuniform cantilever beams is examined for loads applied through the centroid and either concentrated at the free end or uniformly distributed over the full length....

Approximate Solution of Beam-Columns
K Jezek, in his paper Naherungsberechnung der Tragkraft Exzentrisch Gedruckter Stahlastabe (Stahlbau, vol.8, p.89, 1935), approximates interaction equations of an eccentrically loaded...

Frequencies of Beams with Elastic Warping Restraint
The free flexural-torsional vibrations of beams of thin-walled open cross sections have been studied extensively. In previous investigations arbitrary boundary conditions on the translational...

Settlement of Embankment on Layer of Soil
Practicing engineers are often concerned with the computation of the settlement of a layer of compressible soil bearing an embankment of great length with a symmetrical either triangular...

Remote Measurement of Radial Deformations
In the process of performing the triaxial test it is sometimes required to find the amount of lateral strain at various stages of the test or to prevent lateral strain. This note demonstrates...

Unsteady Free Surface Ground Water Seepage
Seepage in a two-dimensional unconfined aquifer of rectangular cross-section is analyzed to allow prediction of the fall of the free surface and the rate of outflow into an adjoining water...

Similitude Criteria for Flow from Unconfined Aquifers
Seepage in a two-dimensional unconfined aquifer of rectangular cross-section is analyzed to determine the rate of outflow into an adjoining water body which fully penetrates the aquifer....

Characteristics of Flow over Weirs of Finite Crest Width
The characteristics of flow over weirs of rectangular cross-section with finite crest width depend on h/P, h/B, a characteristic Reynolds number, K/h, and Weber number, wherein h, P, B,...

Choking and Supercavitating Valves
The occurrence of choking flow or supercavitation downstream of valves can result in unsatisfactory performance. A valve chokes when the mean pressure immediately downstream drops to vapor...

Pumped Storage: State-of-the-Art
The many special problems involved in pumped storage power projects are of widespread interest to the profession. A panel discussion program was organized which consisted of a cross section...

Fatigue Strength of Hybrid Plate Girders
The results of 63 hybrid girders tested at The University of Texas, Austin, are presented. Six girders had A441 steel flanges and the others had A514 steel flanges. All girders had A36...

Three-Dimensional Inelastic Subassemblage Design
A subassemblage design procedure provides a method for designing a column and eight framing beams taking into consideration biaxial moments and restraints on the column. Inelastic beam...
