RE: 1/3 increase

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
No, I'm saying that the 1/3 allowable stress increase was not originally
implemented for that purpose. And I'm saying that while you were told one
thing about the increase, I was taught another, and as you have read
everyone else was taught something else yet again.

Sorry if I wasn't clear.

Bill,

Are you saying that all materials *cannot* sustain higher loads when loaded
quickly than they can when they are loaded slowly?
