IN calculating the bending moments in a beam freely supported at the ends it is usual, when the loading is not symmetrical, first to calculate an end reaction. Many people do not realise that the calculations can be put in such a form that the complete bending moment and shear diagrams can be drawn without further calculation.
II. Materials, Methods of Testing and Tests
PORTLAND cement was used which passed the standard tests for specific gravity, fineness, soundness and time of setting. The specific gravity was 3.10.
THE progress made in reinforced concrete construction during the past twenty years has been so great that a knowledge of the principles of reinforced concrete design is now almost essential to every young structural engineer who has his career before him; the past ten years has seen a very valuable and extensive addition to the literature of the subject, but many students still have considerable difficulty in following the treatment usually given.
