Excerpt from Strength of Beams Under Transverse Loads The usual discussion of stress in beams loaded transversely, involving as it does the calculus, is unintelligible to that large class of builders, and others, whose mathematical training has not exten ded beyond the elements of conic-sections. Yet, the most important cases may be explained without using the higher mathematics. The aim of the following pages is to put into brief and convenient shape, without resorting to the higher mathematics, the discussion of the most important and common cases of horizontal beams under vertical loads. In beams Of rectangular cross-section the formulae given are exact under the assumptions generally made in regard to the laws of elasticity. In flanged beams the approximations made use of are those adopted in ordinary practice. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
