The Stress Distribution in a Simply-Supported Beam with a Circular Hole

The Stress Distribution in a Simply-Supported Beam with a Circular Hole

THE problem of the simply-supported rectangular beam having a single circular hole is investigated for the case of bending with shear. An approximate mathematical analysis is presented along with the results of a photoelastic investigation. Results are also given for a rolled steel joist with a circular hole in its web from measurements with acoustic and electrical resistance strain gauges. J. E. Gibson and W. M. Jenkins

The Cumberland Hotel and Annexe. Discussion on Mr. Frost's Paper

The Cumberland Hotel and Annexe. Discussion on Mr. Frost's Paper

Mr. M. B. Buxton, M.C., MA., A.M.Inst.C.E. (Member), proposing a vote of thanks to Mr. Frost for his paper, said that the Curnberland Hotel and its annexe constituted one of the largest buildings ever erected in this country, and by reason of the fact that it had bedrooms and living rooms situatcti all round the building, with no external lavatories and bathrooms -a system adopted in many of the Carlatlian and American hotels-it marked a great step forward. The paper and illustrations were of extraordinary interest, for they indicated the great difficulties duo to the site, in connection with the st.celwork and retaining walls, and the special construction adopted, and they indicated how those difficulties were overcome. The Institution was very proud indeed of the fact that one of its members had been appointed engineer for this great building. One might reasonably have expected that one of the well-known civil engineering firms would have been appointed. Mr. Frost was to be congratulated on his appointment, which had done honour to the Institution, as well as to himself.
