This paper gives the results of theoretical analyses dealing with the transverse behaviour of parabolic encastre tied arches under two loading conditions. Firstly, the arches are considered with a static uniformly distributed transverse load acting (thereby simulating wind loading) and generalized results are given for transverse deflexion and bending moments. Secondly, the general problem of transverse and axial loading is considered and values of deflexion and moment are given for one specific value of axial load. The increase of initial deflexion and bending moment due to axial thrust is discussed and suitable multiplying factors derived so that these quantities can be obtained for a wide range of axial thrust.

Analysis of continuous space frames by conjugate frame analogy

Analysis of continuous space frames by conjugate frame analogy

The conjugate frame analogy is extended to the treatment of continuous space frames. Fundamental relationships between the actual structure and the conjugate structure are derived for a general case, and then specialized for frames with straight members of constant cross-section. The latter are used for the derivation of simultaneous equations which, in conjunction with the static equilibrium conditions, yield the redundant quantities. J. KIUSALAAS, S.L. LEE, and M. MAKINO

A numerical solution to the curved beam problem

A numerical solution to the curved beam problem

The paper describes a numerical forward integration method of analysis applicable to any curved member subject to loading normal to its plane of curvature. The development of the method is shown and the results of its application given to two problems of known solution, with a discussion of the errors and convergence of results. PHILIP T. A.
