The Effect Of Combined Torsional And Bending Loads On A Channel Beam With One End Restrained From Warping, David M. Schaeffer Jan 1966

The Effect Of Combined Torsional And Bending Loads On A Channel Beam With One End Restrained From Warping, David M. Schaeffer

Masters Theses

"Channel beams have been designed with the main purpose of giving large resistance to bending while the torsional strengths are known to be relatively small. In this experiment, a cantilevered channel beam was loaded with a concentrated load at the free end, first through the experimentally determined shear center and then through the centroid of the cross section. For each loading condition, the strains were measured with the aid of SR-4 strain gages placed at intervals along the length of the beam. With the aid of a computer, the strains were converted into longitudinal stresses and these stresses were compared ...
