Vibration of hinged circular arches
The governing differential equations for the vibration of uniform circular arches have been derived considering in addition to the usual actions the effect of rotatory inertia and shear de-formation. A trial eigenvalue ...
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 ...
Numerical analysis of plates of variable thickness
The accuracy of five finite difference methods when applied to the analysis of plates of variable thickness is 'studied in this thesis. The plates are rectangular with two opposite edges simply supported. The thickness ...
Simply supported steel I-beams prestressed with horizontal restrained tendons
This study is concerned with the prestressing of rolled sections by means of a tendon which at various points throughout its length is restrained from moving relative to the cross section but is free to move through the ...
Lateral buckling of tapered, cantilever I-beam
It is the purpose of this study to examine theoretically the effect of flange and web taper on the lateral stability of a cantilever I-beam loaded with a point load at its end in the plane of maximum flexural rigidity. ...
Effect of recirculation on the performance of a trickling filter
Abstract Not Available.
Analysis of thin shells by modifications of thin wall beam theory
The use of thin wall beam theory for the analysis of simply supported shells is described and the necessary modifications to the thin wall beam theory are shown which will make the solution as theoretically correct as the ...
Vibrations of rectangular plates
In this thesis, numerical data is presented for the natural frequencies of vibrations of rectangular plates of uniform thickness having all possible combinations of simply supported, fixed and free edges. A vide range of ...
Accuracy of several finite difference methods for plate problems
The accuracy of several finite difference methods for the analysis of the flexure of plates with fixed edges is studied in this dissertation. The investigation has been confined to a study of a square fixed edge plate ...
