Sheet Metal Girders with Spars Resistant to Bend!ing -
Oblique Uprights - Stiffness
Noting that the stiffness of the girder increases very rap-
idly as $ increases, the result can be sulm ed up as follows:
When the cross stress preoonderates in one direction and when
the web plate is to be given the dimensions commensurate to its
stresses, it is advisable (regardless of any ensuing structural
difficulties) to set the uprights at about = 1200, thereby
lowering the weight of the plate wall 15 per cent (in contrast
to -- 900), and raisin; the stiffness 55 per cent. But,
when the cross stresses alternate and are approximately of the
same intensity in both directions, or, if the web plate thick-
ness is determined by other structural reasons, then S = 900
should be chosen.
