A Summary of design formulas for beams having thin webs in diagonal tension by Paul Kuhn( Book )

7 editions published between 1933 and 1952 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents an explanation of the fundamental principles and a summary of the essential formulas for the design of diagonal-tension field beams, i.e., beams with very thin webs, as developed by Professor Wagner of Germany
Description of stress-strain curves by three parameters by Walter Ramberg( Book )

3 editions published between 1943 and 1947 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A simple formula is suggested for describing the stress-strain curve in terms of three parameters: namely, Young's modulus and two secant yield strengths. Dimensionless charts are derived from this formula for determining the stress-strain curve, the tangent modulus, and the reduced modulus of a material for which these three parameters are given. Comparison with the tensile and compressive data on aluminum alloy, stainless-steel, and carbon-steel sheet in NACA Technical Note No. 840 indicates that the formula is adequate for most of these materials. The formula does not describe the behavior of alclade sheet, which shows a marked change in slope at low stress. It seems probable that more than three parameters will be necessary to represent such stress-strain curves adequately
Critical stress of thin-walled cylinders in torsion by S. B Batdorf( Book )

6 editions published in 1947 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Empirical design curves are presented for the critical stress of thin-walled cylinders loaded in axial compression. These curves are plotted in terms of the nondimensional parameters of small-deflection theory and are compared with theoretical curves derived from buckling of cylinders with simply supported and clamped edges. An empirical equation is given for the buckling of cylinders having a length-radius ratio greater than about 0.75
Square plate with clamped edges under normal pressure producing large deflections by Samuel Levy( Book )

4 editions published in 1942 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A theoretical analysis is given for the stresses and deflections of a square plate with clamped edges under normal pressure producing large deflections. Values of the bending stress and membrane stress at the center of the plate and at the midpoint of the edge are given for center deflections up to 1.9 times the plate thickness. The shape of the deflected surface is given for low pressures and for the highest pressure considered. Convergence of the solution is considered, and it sis estimated that the possible error is less than 2 percent. The results are compared with the only previous approximate analysis known to the author and agree with 5 percent. They are also shown to compare favorably with the known exact solutions for the long rectangular plate and the circular plate
Bending of rectangular plates with large deflections by Samuel Levy( Book )

4 editions published in 1942 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The solution of von Karman's fundamental equations for large deflections of plates is presented for the case of asimply supported rectangular plate under combined edge compression and lateral loading. Numerical solutions are given for square plates and for rectangular plates with a width-span ratio of 3:1. The effective widths according to von Karman, Bengston, Marguerre, and Cox and with experimental results by Ramberg, McPherson, and Levy. The deflections for a square plate under lateral pressure are compared with experimental and theoretical results by Kaiser. It is found that the effective widths agree closely with Marguerre's formula and with the experimentally observed values and that the deflections agree with the experimental results and with Kaiser's work

Handbook of structural stability by George Gerard( Book )

16 editions published between 1957 and 1995 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Test data on the crippling strength of various formed and extruded shapes are reviewed, from which a generalized method of crippling analysis is formulated. The effects upon the crippling strength of alclad coatings and the increased properties in the corners of formed sections are investigated by use of this analysis
Shear lag in box beams methods of analysis and experimental investigations by Paul Kuhn( Book )

3 editions published between 1941 and 1942 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recommendations for numerical solution of reinforced-panel and fuselage-ring problems by Nicholas J Hoff( Book )

3 editions published between 1948 and 1949 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Procedures are recommended for solving the equations of equilibrium of reinforced panels and isolated fuselage rings as represented by the external loads and the operations table established according to Southwell's method. From the solution of these equations fhe stress distribution can be easily determined
A Unified theory of plastic buckling of columns and plates by Elbridge Z Stowell( Book )

4 editions published between 1947 and 1948 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the basis of modern plasticity considerations, a unified theory of plastic buckling applicable to both columns and plates has been developed. For uniform compression, the theory shows shows that long columns which bend without appreciable twisting require the tangent modulus and that long flanges which twist without appreciable bending require the secant modulus. Structures that both bend and twist when they buckle require a modulus which is a combination of the secant modulus and the tangent modulus
Plastic buckling of simply supported compressed plates by Richard A Pride( Book )

3 editions published in 1949 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tests were made of 14S-T6 aluminum-alloy square tubes to determine the critical compressive stress of simply supported flat plates in the plastic range. Excellent agreement is shown with with Stowell's theory for plastic buckling which is based upon a deformation theory of plasticity, close agreement with two other deformation-type theories of plastic buckling and withthe secant-modulus method, and marked disagreement with a buckling theory based upon a flow theory of plasticity
Principles of moment distribution applied to stability of structures composed of bars or plates by Eugene E Lundquist( Book )

4 editions published between 1943 and 1945 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The principles of the cross method of moment distribution, which have previously been applied to the stability of structures composed of bars under axial load, are applied to the stability of structures composed of long plates under longitudinal load. A brief theoretical treatment of the subject, as applied to structures composed of either bars or plates, is included, together with an illustrative example for each of these two types of structure. An appendix presents the derivation of the formulas for the various stiffnesses and carry-over factors used in solving problems in the stability of structures composed of long plates
