Continuous Monorail

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Does anyone in this post has information about determining allowable flexural 
compressive stress for continuous monorail with trolley running on the bottom 
flange?  Also, has there been any new research (theoretical or experimental) 
for determining allowable flexural compressive stress for monorail beams with 
an overhang? I have a copy of the paper "Allowable bending stresses for 
overhanging monorails" by Stephen Tanner, that appeared in Engineering 
Journal, AISC, Third Quarter 1985.  However, the methodology described in 
this paper is not applicable for many situations.  For example, the interior 
support shown in the paper may not exist.
