A growing number of glass is getting used in structures. it's now not thought of a delicate fabric. it's recyclable and reasonable. Glass comes in quite a lot of architectural, structural, optical and acoustical houses to handle the various specifications of structures. wisdom in regards to the use of glass in constructions alongside clinical traces is a 'gap' within the shortly on hand literature.

Example text

The one-piece construction shown in the lower diagram "stiffens" the structure: greater bending strength and less deflection. However - and this is the strange and interesting part - the structure at the top is actually stronger on shear. The structure in the lower part of the diagram has some very high shear stresses occurring on the top surface of the rafter where it passes over the girder. The effect of the sliding feature of the wood fibers over the neutral axis is increased, because the compression stresses on the top surfaces of the two spans are causing a tremendous tensile stress at the top of the rafter directly above the girder.

There's a kind of logic there, but it is wrong. You've got to compare the squared spans. Ten times ten equals one hundred (10 hundred (20 X X 10 = 100), but twenty times twenty equals four 20 = 400). The beam carrying the 20-foot span needs to be four times stronger than the one carrying the IO-foot span. I'm going to give another less obvious example of how span (squared) influences strength, an example that pops up all the time with students at our earth-sheltered housing classes. The stress-load calculations for both the Earthwood house and the "40 by 40 Log End Cave" plans are predicated upon BASIC TIMBER FRAME STRUCTURE • 33 nine-foot spans.
