Modulus of Rupture of Concrete Beam

Modulus of Rupture of Concrete Beam

Modulus of ruptureĀ is a measure of the tensile strength of concrete beams or slabs. Flexural strength identifies the amount of stress and force an unreinforced concrete slab, beam or other structure can withstand such that it resists any bending ...

Factors Affecting Deflections of Reinforced Concrete Beams and Slabs

Factors Affecting Deflections of Reinforced Concrete Beams and Slabs

There are various factors which affect deflections of reinforced concrete beams and slabs which needs to be considered and assessed adequately during design and construction. These factors can be divided into two group including parameter known before construction and factors unknown ...

Vibration Analysis of Machine Foundations

Vibration Analysis of Machine Foundations

Machine Foundation is subjected to dynamic loads. These loads develop the vibratory motions which will transmit into the soil below the foundation. The effect on soil caused by these vibrations is analyzed using principles of soil dynamics and theory of ...

Qualitative Structural Analysis of Beams and Frames

Qualitative Structural Analysis of Beams and Frames

Qualitative structural analysis might not be familiar to structural engineers. The usual way of analysis of structures is numerical (quantitative) method in which the structural designers should determine values for dimensions and loads and compute bending moments and reactions. However, there ...
