Some modern methods of arch calculation

THE arch is a form of structure which possesses great advantages from the standpoints of beauty and economy, and from the earliest times the arch has been used in all kinds of constructional work. In the present paper we shall not consider arches at all from the point of view of architectural styles or orders, but will restrict our consideration to the calculation of the stresses in them.
