Stress distribution in and equivalent width of flanges of wide, thin-wall steel beams

Stress distribution in and equivalent width of flanges of wide, thin-wall steel beams

Date: January 1, 1940
Creator: Winter, George
Description: The use of different forms of wide-flange, thin-wall steel beams is becoming increasingly widespread. Part of the information necessary for a national design of such members is the knowledge of the stress distribution in and the equivalent width of the flanges of such beams. This problem is analyzed in this paper on the basis of the theory of plane stress. As a result, tables and curves are given from which the equivalent width of any given beam can be read directly for use in practical design. An investigation is given of the limitations of this analysis due to the fact that extremely wide and thin flanges tend to curve out of their plane toward the neutral axis. A summary of test data confirms very satisfactorily the analytical results.

Stock-Water Developments: Wells, Springs, and Ponds

Stock-Water Developments: Wells, Springs, and Ponds

Date: 1940
Creator: Hamilton, C. L. (Clifford Leslie), 1904- & Jepson, Hans G.
Description: "The need for effective utilization of grazing areas and the scarcity of stock water have led to unprecedented activity in the development of water supplies during the last few years as a part of conservation practices in range and pasture areas. Economical construction, planned distribution, and adequacy of stock-watering centers are essential to profitable grazing enterprises. Inadequate coordination of stock-water developments with necessary conservation practices and the improper location or construction of these facilities have made many water supplies unsatisfactory. This bulletin deals with the requirements and development of stock-water supplies suitable for grazing areas." -- p. ii

The Wheat Jointworm and Its Control

The Wheat Jointworm and Its Control

Date: 1940
Creator: Phillips, W. J. (William Jeter), 1879-1972 & Poos, F. W.
Description: Revised edition. "The wheat jointworm is a very small grub which lives in stems of wheat, feeding on the juices of the plant and causing a slight swelling or distortion of the stem above the joint. The egg from which it hatches is laid in the stem by an insect resembling a small black ant with wings. This insect attacks wheat only. The injury which it causes to wheat is very distinct from that caused by the Hessian fly, yet the effects caused by these two insects are often confused by farmers." -- p. 1-2. This bulletin gives a brief outline of the life cycle and the nature of the injury to the plant by the jointworm so that any farmer may readily recognize its work and be able to apply the measures of control herein recommended.
