Theory of Steel-Concrete Arches and of Vaulted Structures (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Theory of Steel-Concrete Arches and of Vaulted Structures

This work then deals especially with the most complicated case, and it is believed that a thoroughly practical solution is offered.

About one half of this second edition is entirely new; the remainder is substantially as it appeared in the first edition, though often more condensed.

Credit is given in the body of the work to those from whom the author has derived assistance. Special mention though is due Dr. Hermann Scheffler, as his "Théorie des Voutes" has been drawn upon for much of the theory in treating culverts and vaulted structures.

The theory of the elastic arch for arch bridges of stone, concrete, brick, etc., is advocated here, as in the author's previous treatises. This theory, as a practical working theory, receives direct confirmation in the many experiments performed by the Austrian Society of Civil Engineers and Architects, in 1890-95, on arches of brick and concrete.
