Sequence summation factors
(University of Missouri, 1955)"This paper defines a new structural parameter called "Sequencesummation Factor" which may be used in the systematic calculation of "overrelaxation" factors for moment distribution processes. These sequencesummation ... 
Field testing of two prestressed concrete girders
(University of Missouri, 1961)"This paper presents the procedures used and the results obtained in a cooperative research project designed to obtain field data to determine the actual behavior during construction and in service of one of the first ... 
Stability of laminar flow in curved channels
(University of Missouri, 1957)"Occurrence of secondary flow of a viscous fluid flowing under a pressure gradient in curved channels has often been explained by invoking the existence of boundary layers before the primary flow is established. In this ... 
Transfer of load between precast bride slabs
(University of Missouri, 1961)"This paper presents the procedures used and the results obtained in a series of static load tests designed to study the mechanism of load transfer between adjacent precast bridgeslab sections. These tests were undertaken ... 
Method for obtaining the trees of a v vertix complete graph from the trees of a v1 complete graph
(University of Missouri, 1965)"A method is described for obtaining the trees of a v vertex complete graph through an iterative process. The iterative process is as follows, first find all the trees of a 3 vertex complete graph, then by an appropriate ... 
The engineer becomes a professional manager
(University of Missouri, 1953)"Today over a third of the management of large industry in America is in the hands of engineers, over a third of mature engineering graduates now find their duties largely managerial in nature, and most engineers have ... 
Supplemental irrigation for missouri and regions of similar rainfall
(University of Missouri, 1951)"The expansion of supplemental irrigation in Missouri will ensure satisfactory crops in those seasons where rainfall is inadequate in amount or distribution through the season, ensure increased quality and quantity of crop ... 
Controlleddeflection design method for reinforced concrete beams and slabs
(University of Missouri, 1962)"Describes a design method for reinforced concrete beams and slabs in which the allowable ratio of span to deflection is a criterion. The method may also be used for estimating deflections in given designs including those ... 
Equivalent load method for analyzing prestressed concrete structures
(University of Missouri, 1952)"A method is presented for posttensioned reinforced concrete structures whereby the effect of cable tension can be expressed as a distributed or concentrated load. The analysis thus becomes a simple matter of applying ... 
Additions to sample data theory
(University of Missouri, 1955)"In the current literature, two different approaches to sampleddata theory prevail. One approach emphasizes the ztransformation methods for design and synthesis. The other approach emphasizes the Laplace transformation ... 
Characteristics equation of cylindrical shells : a simplified method of solution
(University of Missouri, 1962)"Messrs. Ramaswamy and Ramaiah suggest an elegant procedure for determining the roots of the eighthdegree characteristic equation. The method consists of converting the eighthdegree equation into a biquadratic and then ... 
Measuring equivalent circuits
(University of Missouri, 1960)"The equivalent circuit is a familiar tool to power system engineers. Today's large interconnected power systems often are studied as electric networks in which part of the network is a simplified equivalent of the actual ... 
Coating thickness measurements using pulsed eddy currents
(University of Missouri, 1955)"The nondestructive measurement of the thickness of one metal coated or clad upon another metal as a base has been studied for the past twenty years or more. If one of the metals is magnetic, the problem is relatively ... 
Lightweight aggregates for structural concrete
(University of Missouri, 1955)"In recent years interest in lightweight concrete has become widespread, not only on account of its light weight, which is desirable in floor slabs, walls and partitions, but also because of its high thermal and sound ... 
An evaluation of the overhead projector in teaching kinematics
(University of Missouri, 1961)"The overhead projector has been used as a teaching aid for several years, in elementary education and in engineering drawing. No use of an overhead projector in kinematics has been reported, nor has there been a statistical ... 
Static modulus of elasticity of conrete as affected by density
(University of Missouri, 1960)"The elastic modulus of concrete is an important parameter in reinforced concrete design and analysis. With the increased use of lightweight aggregates for structural concrete a better understanding of the relationship ... 
Creep of conrete: influencing factors and prediction
(University of Missouri, 1964?) 
Design of optimum phaseshift oscillators
(University of Missouri, 1957)In the designing of phaseshift oscillators it is advantageous to make the loss in the phase shift circuit a minimum, so that an amplifier of minimum gain may be used. A method of obtaining such a design has been developed ... 
The use of the flux plot in traffic
(University of Missouri, 1965)During the summer of 1963 the authors used fixedtime interval pictures to study traffic characteristics on a short section of Highway 400, Ontario. The purpose of the study was to obtain densityflow relationships, ... 
Irrotational flow over spillways of finite height
(University of MissouriColumbia, 1965)Potential theory is used to analyze freesurface, irrotational flow over spillways of finite height. Numerical values were obtained for freesurface coordinates, pressures on the surface of the spillway, and discharge ...
