I remember a client/Architect that wanted me to hold up a structure so I
designed him some sky hooks......
as long as the aircraft has fuel he is a happy camper.

First the tatoo
artist couldn't figure out what the architect had drawn for his tatoo.
It made absolutely no sense. When she figured it out, she realized it
was not possible to do it in line work. So after figuring out what the
Archie wanted, she completely redrew it for practicality, then went to
work. But the Architect was afraid to let just anyone know he had a tat,
so he had her stop it short just above his short-sleeve line. So you
have this fantastic convoluted shape that just seems to stop with loose ends
just above his sleeve line - imagine a skyscraper elevation cut off at about
mid-level of the first floor with the columns dangling in space. That's

I have a curved
beam (horizontal). The center line of the beam layout is
horizontally offset from the supporting post by about 10+ % of the
span. The arch wants a channel section and will not allow a tube
section. Can anyone suggest a quick method to check for flexure
and torsion. DL is 480plf , LL = 800 plf. The project in
under construction and the detail is due first thing to-morrow
