For concrete masonry, the wall or column may also be analyzed using the unity
equation: fJFa + ff/Ft < 1 where /a is the calculated axial compressive stress, Fa
the allowable compressive stress, Cs/m, /f the calculated flexural compressive ...
Compression: Force or stress that results in shortening. Creep: Time and
temperature dependent deformation. Dead load: Weight of the structure.
Determinate: Structure for which the number of unknown quantities is equal to the
number of ...
The elastic regime of deformation is characterized, in metals, by a proportionality
between stress (o-) and strain (e), <r = Ee, where E is the Young's modulus; this
simple relationship between stress and strain is called Hooke's law. A Elasticity ...
