Method of application of moment distribution to the solution of arched bents with a varying moment of inertia
MetadataShow full item record
This work is an extensions of the thesis of Cain and Hansen and Jones in the application of moment distribution to the solution of arched bents. This thesis will, however, deal with an arched bent of varying amounts of inertia. The fixed end moments for an arched bent whose moment of inertia varies as the secant of the angle alpha has been derived by Iselin and La Lande. It will be the object of this thesis to correlate these moments and other constants as found in this thesis in order to present a solution of arched bents by moment distribution.
This thesis document was issued under the authority of another institution, not NPS. At the time it was written, a copy was added to the NPS Library collection for reasons not now known. It has been included in the digital archive for its historical value to NPS. Not believed to be a CIVINS (Civilian Institutions) title.
