RE: Westergaard Chart for Membrane Stresses in Thin Rectangular Plates..

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

I have a copy of this Dept. of the Interior publication, also known as Engineering Monograph No. 27.  It’s 90 pages so I can’t scan the whole document for you but I can scan page 40, which is what I think you are looking for.


And, yes, I am a very, very old engineer.

Roark's is probably the easiest to find but if you know a really old fart engineer the classic document for this is "Moments and Reactions for Rectangular Plates", U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Reclamation.
