Methods of constructing charts for adjusting test results for the compressive strength of plates for differences in material properties

George J. Heimerl
Apr 1948

Methods are presented for constructing charts suitable for adjusting to standard values plate test results for the critical compressive stress and the average stress at maximum load. The methods take into account the difference between the compressive properties of the material used for the tests and those upon which the design is to be based.
