A study of the behavior of a composite concrete and steel column under the influence of combined axial and flexural loads
In a theoretical bean-column analysis it is necessary to know the value of the effective modulus of elasticity in order to compute the critical buckling load of the member in compression. The composite specimens of this ...
Electrical properties of argon gas emerging from a plasma jet
Argon gas, which had been partly ionized by an electric arc with an enthalpy input in the order of 104 BTU/lbm was expanded through a supersonic wind tunnel nozzle. It was found to contain residual positive ions in excess ...
An investigation of a condenser microphone as a pressure transducer
The device described is a preasure-sensitive transducer. commercially available condenser microphone, a Stephens model C-1 was used as a capacitor manometer. The instrument was developed for use in breath velocity studies ...
A study of foams
An evaluation of the triaxial compression test for the determination of the shear strength of soils
The stability of a soil mass against progressive failure, caused by the weight of the soil or superimposed loads may be predicted by comparing, at all points within the soil mass, the shearing, stresses caused by these ...
A study of entrainment in distillation column for sieve plate
The purpose of this investigation was to study. the effect of slot velocity, liquid height, plate spacing and slot concentration on entrainment for perforated plates in fractionation columns. The study was approached first ...
