Computative examination of bending strength of girders originally curved and subjected to longitudinal compression

Hoff, Wilhelm
October 1922

This report examines the stipulation contained in the 1918 BLV, that a girder subjected to longitudinal compression under the influence of half of the specified breaking load, along with Euler bending safety with an initial deflection of 1/200 of the length of the girder can, at most, be subjected to half the stipulated breaking strength.
