Free vibration of circular arches
The lower natural frequencies and the associated modes of vibration of uniform circular arches which are either fixed or simply supported at the ends are computed and studied in this thesis. A general theory which considers ...
Behavior of steel beams subjected to alternating inelastic strains
This thesis reports an experimental study of the load deflection behavior and fialure characterisitcs of cantilevered rolled steel beams which undergo alternating inelastic strains. The beams are clamped into a rigid fixture ...
Effect of costs on optimum proportions of plate girders
The proportions of optimum steel plate girders are investigated using a dynamic programming scheme. The optimum properties are determined for realistic steel material and fabrication costs as well as for constant material ...
