TWELFTH EDITION. The following revisions and additions have been made in this edition : , The chapter on Fireproof Floors has been entirely rewritten and ext.ended to conform to present practice, and several pages of re- visions and additions have been made in Chapter XXV. Several pages of tables relating to iron beams have been omitted, and other tables substituted in their place. New tables have been added in Chapter XI., giving the strength of H -shaped and rectan- gular cast-iron columns, and of the new ** Gray " steel column. A special article on the Strength of Cast-iron Bearing Plates has been added to Chapter X., and new tables are given in Chapter VI. for the Strength of Masonry. There are also several changes in Part III., particularly a revision of the article on Steam-heating, and several new pages giving the cost per square and cubic foot of public and private buildings. Altogether there are about one hundred pages of revised and new matter in this edition. F. E. Kidder. Denver, Mcvreh 1, 1895. PREFACE TO THE NINTH EDITION. Within the past four years the introduction of steel in building construction has been so rapid, and the changes thereby occasioned in the tables relating to the strength of materials so great, that it became necessary to revise all that portion of the book which relates to iron and steel coi^struction. After undertaking this revision, it was found that the changes would be so groat as to necessitate resetting a large portion of the book, and the author then decided to improve the opportunity to rearrange Part 111., and to make certain additions thereto that he has had in contemplation for some time. The present edition, therefore, is largely a new book, all of Chapters XXIIl. and XXY., and nearly all of Chapters XL, Xlll., and XIV., being rewritten, and one hundred pages of new matter added io the second part alone. Part 111. has been rearranged and enlarged by about eighty pages of miscellaneous information of especial value to architects, and a glossary of sixty pages added as an appendix. The new matter contained on pages 746-773, it is believed, will be of especial interest to architects and draughtsmen, as the data there given are not readily accessible elsewhere. It will be noticed that in the list of Noted American Architects there are many dates wanting; if such readers as may be able to supply them will kindly inform the author, he will be greatly obliged. The author is always pleased to receive criticism and suggestions, and is ever willing to give further explanation of any portion of the book that may not be readily understood. F. E. KiDDEB. Denver, Col., November 3, 1891. PEEFAOE. In preparing the following pages, it has ever been the aim of the author to give to the architects and bnilders of this country a r^erenee hook which should be for them what Trautwine's ** Pocket-Book" is to engineers, — a compendium of practical facts, rules, and tables, presented in a form as convenient for application as possible, and as reliable as our present knowledge will permit. Only so much theory has been given as will render the application of the formulas more apparent, and aid the stu- dent in understanding, in some measure, the principles upon which the formulas are based. It is believed that nothing has been given in this book but what has been borne out in practice. As this book was not written for engineers^ the more intricate problems of building construction, which may fairly be said to 'iome within the province of the civil engineer, have been omitted. Desiring to give as much information as possible likely to be of service to architects and builders, the author has borrowed and ouoted from many sources, in most cases with the permission of the authors. Much practical information has been derived from the various handbooks published by the large manufacturers of rolled-iron beams, bars, etc. ; and the author has always found the publishers willing to aid him whenever requested. Although but very little has been taken from Trautwine's " Pocket-Book for Engineers," yet this valuable book has served the author as a model, which he has tried to imitate as well as the difference in the subjects would permit; and if his work shall prove of as much value to architects and builders as Mr. Traut- wine's has to engineers, he will feel amply rewarded for his labor. viii PREFACE. As it is impossible for the author to verify all of the dimensions and miscellaneous information contained in Part III. , he cannot speak for their accuracy, except that they were in all cases taken from what were considered reliable sources of information. The tables in Part II. have been carefully computed, and it is believed are free from any large errors. There are so many points of in- formation often required by architects and builders, that it is difficult for one person to compile them all; and although the present volume is by no means a small one, yet the author desires to make his work as useful as possible to those for whom it has been prepared, and he will therefore be pleased to receive any in- formation of a serviceable nature pertaining to architecture or building, that it may be inserted in future editions should such become necessary, and for the correction of any errors that may be found. The author, while compiling this volume, has consulted a great number of works relating to architecture and building; and as he has frequently been asked by students and draughtsmen to refer them to books from which they might acquire a better knowledge of construction and building, the following list of books is given as valuable works on the various subjects indicated by the titles: — " Notes on Building Construction," compiled for the use of the students in the science and art schools. South Kensington, Eng-* land. 3 vols. Rivingtons, publishers, London. "Building Superintendence," by T. M. Clark, architect and professor of architecture, Massachusetts Institute of Technology. J. R. Osgood A Co., publishers, Boston. " The American House Carpenter" and ** The Theory of Trans- verse Strains," both by Mr. R. G. Hatfield, architect, formerly of New York. ** Graphical Analysis of Ro Trusses," by Professor Charles E. Green of the University of 3higan. "The Fire Protection '*' ' by C. J. H. Wcjpdbury, in- spector for the Factory urance Companies. John Wiley & Sons, publisl PREFACE. ix ** House Drainage and Water Service,*' by James C. Bayles, editor of "The Iron Age" and "The Metal Worker." David Williams, publisher, New York. "The Builders' Guide and Estimators' Price-Book," and "Plas- ter and Plastering, Mortars, and Cements," by Fred. T. Hodgson, editor of " The Builder and Wood Worker." Industrial Publica- tion Company, New York. "Foundations and Concrete Works" and "Art of Building," by E. Dobson. Weale's Series, London. It would be well if all of the above books might be found in every architect's ofl&ce; but if the expense prevents that, the ambitious student and draughtsman should at least make himself acquainted with their contents. These works will also be found of great value to the enterprising builder. PREFACE TO THE FOURTH EDITION. It is now a little more than two years since " The Architect's and Builder's Pocket-Book" was first introduced to the public. Daring that time the author has received so many encouraging words and suggestions from a large niunber of architects and bonders, that he desires to acknowledge their kindness, and to express the hope that the book will always merit their com-> mendation. When preparing the book for publication, especial care and tiiooght were given to the second part of the book; trusting that, if once well done, it would need but little revision for a number of years. The first part, also, it is believed, is quite complete in its way. For Part III., however, the author found time merely to compile such matter as he believed to be of practi- cal value to architects or builders, thinking that, should the book prove a success, this part could be easily revised and enlarged; and, since the second edition was published, the author has de- voted such time as he could command to revising such portions as upon investigation seemed to require it, and preparing addi- tional matter. It is the intention of the author, seconded by the publishers, to make each edition of the book more complete and perfect than the one preceding, in the hope that it may in time become to the architects of the present day what Gwilt's "Encyclopaedia" was to those of former days. The great diversity of informa- tion, however, required by an architect, or those having to do xii PREFACE. of time to devote to the work, to make such a book as complete as could be desired. In the Preface to the first edition it was requested that those who might have information or suggestions which would increase the value of the book would kindly send them to the author, or advise him of any errors that should be discovered. Several persons generously replied to this invitation ; and several small errors have been corrected, and additional information given, as the result. It is believed, however, that there are yet many who have thought, at. times, of various ways in which the book could be improved, or have in their private note-books practical data or suggestions which others in the profession would be glad to possess; and it is hoped all such will feel it for the interest of. the profession to forward such items to the author. Any records or reports of tests of the strength of building materials of any kind will be especially appreciated. To the list of books given in the former Preface the author would add the following, which have been of much assistance in the preparation of the pages on steam4ieating, and in his professional practice : -^ "The Principles of Heating and Ventilation, and their Prac- tical Application," by John S. Billings, M.D., LL.D., Sanitary Engineer, New York. "Steam-Heating for Buildings; or, Hints to Steam-Fitters, by William J. Baldwin, M.E. John Wiley & Sons, New York. "Steam."

INVOLUTION. To square a number, multiply the number by itself, and the product will be the square; thus, the square ofl8 = 18xl8 = 324. The cube of a number is the product obtained by multi-* plying the number by itself, and that product by the number agftin; thus, the cube of 14 = 14 x 14 x 14 = 2744. 4 EVOLUTION. The fotirtli power of a number is the product obtained by multiplyini; tlie number by itself four times; thus, the fourth power of 10 = 10 x 10 x 10 X 10 = 10000. EVOLUTION.

Measures of Value. UNITED STATES STANDARD. 10 mills = 1 cent. 10 cents = 1 dime. 10 dimes = 1 dollar. 10 dollars = 1 eagle. The standard of gold and silver is 900 parts of pure metal and 100 of alloy in 1000 parts of coin. The fineness expresses the quantity of pure metal in 1000 parts. The remedy of the mint is the allowance for deviation from the exact standard fineness and weight of coins. *e»' Weigrlit of Coin. Double eagle = 516 troy grains. Eagle = 258 troy grains. Dollar (gold) = 25.8 troy grains. Dollar (silver) = 412.5 troy grains. Half-dollar = 192 troy grains. 5-cent piece (nickel) = 77.16 troy grains. 3-cent piece (nickel) = 30 troy grains. Cent (bronze) = 48 troy grains. Measure of Time. 365 days = 1 common year. 366 days = 1 leap year. 60 seconds = 1 minute. 60 minutes = 1 hoiu*. 24 hours = 1 day. A solar day is measured by the rotation of the earth upon its ji :1s with respect to the sun. in astronomical computation and in nautical time the day com- mences at noon, and in the former it is counted throughout the 24 hours. In cixil coinputation the day conunences at midnight, and is divided into two portions of 12 hours each. A solar year is the time in which the earth makes one revolution around the sun; and its average time, called the mean solar year, is 305 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes, 49.7 seconds, or nearly 365i days. A mean lunar month, or lunation of the moon, is 29 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes, 2 seconds, and 5.24 thirds. 30 THE CALENDAR. — ANGULAR MEASURE. The Calendar, Old and New Style. The Julian Calendar was established by Julius Csesar, 44 B.C., and by it one day was inserted in every fourth year. This was the same thing as assuming that the length of the solar year was 305 (lays, 6 hours, instead of the value given above, thus introducin;: an accumulative error of 11 minutes, 12 seconds, every year. This calendar was adopted by the church in 325 A.I>., at the Council of Nice. In tlie year 1582 the annual error of 11 minutes, 12 seconds, had amounted to a period of 10 days, which, by order of Pope Greg- ory XIII., was suppressed in the calendar, and the 0th of October reckomnl as the 15th. To prevent the repetition of this error, it was decided to l(^a.ve out three of the inserted days every 400 years, and to make this omission in the years which are not exactly divisi- ble by 400. Thus, of the years 1700, 1800, 1900, 2000, all of which arc leap years according to the Julian Calendar, only the last is a leap year according to the licfoinned or Greyorian (/alendar. This Ileformed Calendar was not adopted by England until 1752, when 1 1 days were omitted from the calendar. The two calendars are now often called the Old Sft/lc. and the New Style. The latter style is now adopted in every Cliristian country except liussia. Circular and Ang^iilar Measures. tSEl) FOK MEASUUINO ANGI^ES AND ARCS, AND FOR DBTSH- MININO LATITUDE AND LONGITUDE. CO seconds (") = 1 minute ('). 00 minutes = 1 degree (°). 360 degrees = 1 circumference (C). Herouds are usually subdivided into tenths and hundredths. A iiilnute of the circumference of the earth is a geographical mile. D('(j}'pes of the earth's circumference on a meridian average 69.7.6 common miles. THE METRIC SYSTEM. Thf nn'frir. fii/Moni is a system of weiu^lits and measiu'es based r.pon a unit called a meter. The meter is one ten-millionth part of the distance from the equator to either pole, measured on the earth's surface at the level jl the sea. THE METRIC SYSTEM. 31 The names of derived metric denominations are formed by pre- fixing to the name of the primary unit of a measure — Milli (miU'e), a thousandth, Centl (sent'e), a hundredth, Dec! (des'e), a tenth, Deka (dek'a), ten, Hecto (hek'to), one hundred, Kilo (kil'o), a thousand, Myria (mir'ea), ten thousand. This system, first adopted by France, has been extensively adopteq by other countries, and is much used in the sciences and the arts. It was legalized in 1866 by Congress to be used in the United States, and is already employed by the Coast Survey, and, to some extent, by the Mint and the General Post-Office. Linear Measures. The meter is the primary unit of lengths. Table. 10 millimeters (mm.) = 1 centimeter (cm.) = 0.393*7 in. 10 centimeters = 1 decimeter = 3.937 in. 10 decimeters = 1 meter = 30.37 in. 10 meters = 1 dekameter = 393.37 in. 10 dekameters = 1 hectometer = 328 ft. 1 in. 10 hectometers = 1 kilometer (km.) = 0.62137 mi. 10 kilometers — 1 myriameter = 6.2137 mi. The meter is used in ordinary measurements; the centimeter or jnillimeterf in reckoning very small distances; and the kilometer y for roads or great distances. A centimeter is about ^ of an inch ; a meter is about 3 feet 3 inches and | ; a kilometer is about 200 rods, or $ of a mile. Surface Measures. The square meter is the primary unit of ordinary surfaces. The are (air), a square, each of whose sides is ten wicie/vs, is the unit of land measures.

The gram is used in weighing gold, jewels, letters, and small quantities of things. The kilotjram, or, for brevity, kiloy is used by grocers; and the tonneau (tonno), or metric toji, is used in find- ing the weight of very heavy articles. A gram is about 15i grains troy; the kilo about 2i pounds avoir- dupois; and the metric ton, about 2205 pounds. A kilo is the weight of a liter of water at its greatest density; and the metric ton, of a cubic meter of water. Metric numbers are written with the decimal -point (.) at the right of the figures denoting the unit; thus, 15 meters and 3 centimeters are written, 15.03 m. When metric numbers are expressed by figures, the part of tha expression at the left of the decimal-point is read as the number of the unit, and the part at the right, if any, as a number of the lowest denomination indicated, or as a decimal part of the unit; thus, 46.525 m. is read 46 meters and 525 millimeters, or 46 and 525 thousandths meters. In writing and reading metric numbers, according as the scale is 10, 100, or 1000, each denomination should be allowed one, two, op three orders of figures.

BflllNSTJRATION. Definitions. A point is that which has only position. A plane is a surface in which, any two points heing taken, thfi straight line joining them will be wholly in the surface. A curved line is a line of which no portion is sti-aight (Fig. 1). Parallel lines are such as are wholly in the same plane, and have the same dii-ection (Fig. 2). A broken line is a line composed of a series of dashes ; thus, . fig- 2 An angle is the opening between two Parallel Lines, lines meeting at a point, and is tenued a riyJit angle when the two lines are perpendicular to each other, an acute angle when it is less or sharper than a right angle, and ob- iune when it is greater than a right angle. Thus, in Fig. 3, A A A A are acute angles, O O O O are obtuse angles, K K R R are right angles. Polygons. A polygon Is a portion of a plane bounded by straight lines. A triangle is a polygon of three sides. A scalene triangle has none of its sides equal; an isosceles tri* angle has two of its sides equal; an equi- lateral triangle has all three of its sides equal. A right-angle triangle is one which has a right angle. The side opposite the right Fig. 4. angle is called the hypothenuse; the side on Right-angle Triangle. which the trian^e is supposed to stand is called its bane, and the other side, its altitude. FI9.6. Triangle. Fig. 6. Fig. 7. lso8C«les Triangle. Bquilateral Triangl« GEOMETRICAL TERMS. .1. quadrilateral is a polygon of four sides. Quadrilaterals are divided into classes, as follows, — the irape' zium (Fig. 8), which has no two of its sides parallel; the trapezoid (Fig. 9), which has two of its sides parallel; and the paralleloyram (Fig. 10), which is bounded by two pairs of parallel sides. \ / Fig. 8. Fig. 9. Fig. 10. A parallelogram whose sides are not equal, and its angles not right angles, is called a rhomboid (Fig. 11); when the sides are all equal, but the angles are not right angles, it is called a rhombvtt )Fig. 12) ; and, when the angles are right angles, it is called a rectan- gle ( Fig. 13). A rectangle whose sides are all equal is called a square (Fig. 14). Polygoils whose sides are all equal are called regular. L I Fig. 11. Fig. 12. Fig. 13. Fig. 14. Besides the square and equilateral triangles, there are The i)entaf(ow (Fig. 15), which has five sides; The hexagon (Fig. 16), which has six sides; The heptagon (Fig. 17), which has seven sides; The octagon (Fig. 18), which has eight sides. Fig. 15. Fig. 16. Rg. 17. \ / Rg. 18. The enneagon has nine sides. The decagon has ten sides. The dodecagon has twelve sides. For all polygons, the side upon which it is supposed Co stand h called its base ; the pei*pendlcular distance from the highest side oi GEOMETRICAL TERMS. 37 angle to the base (prolonged, if necessary) is called the altitude ; and a linf. joining any two angles not adjacent is called a diagonal, A perimeter is the boundary line of a plane figure. A circle is a portion of a plane bounded by a curve, all the pointi of which are equally distant from a point witliin called the centre (Fig. 19). The clrcurnference is the curve which bounds the circle. A radius is any straight line drawn from the centre to the cir- cumference. Any straight line drawn through the centre to the circumference on each side is called a diameter. An arc of a circle is any part of its circumference. A chord is any straight line joining two points of the circumfer- ence, as bd. A segment is a portion of the circle included between the arc and its chord, as A in Fig. 19. A sector is the space included be- tween an arc and two radii drawn to its extremities, as B, Fig. 19. In the figure, (U) is a radius, cd a diameter, and db is a chord subtending the arc bed, A tangent is a right hne which / in passing a curve touches without cutting it, as fg, Fig. 19. Fig. 19. Volumes. A prism is a volume whose ends are equal and parallel polygons, and whose sides are parallelograms. A prism is triangular f rectangular, etc., according as its ends are triangles, rectangles, etc. A cube is a rectangular prism all of whose sides are squares. A cylinder is a volume of uniform diameter, bounded by a cm \o 1 surface and two equal and parallel circles. A pyramid is a volume whose base is a polygon, and whose sides are triangles meeting in a point called the vertex, A p3rramid is triangular, quadrangular, etc., ac- cording as its base is a triangle, quadrilateral, etc. A cone is a volume whose base is a circle, from which the remaining surface tapera uniformly to a point or vertex (Fig. 20). P»fl- 20. Conic ucUona are the figures made by a plane cutting a cone. 38 MENSURATION. An ellipse is the section of a cone wlien cut by a plane passing obliquely through both sides, as at «6, Fig. 21. A paxcthola is a section of a cone cut by a plane parallel to its side, as at cd. A hyjnrhola is a section of a cone cut by a plane at a greater angle through the base than is made by the side of the cone, as at i'lu In the ellipse, the tranarerse axis, or loju/ diameter f is the longest line that can be drawn through it. The conjugate axis, or short di- ametery is a line drawn through the centre, at right angles to the long diameter. A frustum of a jyyramid or cone is tliat which remains after cutting off the upper part of it by a plane parallel to the base. A sphere is a volume boimded by a curved surface, all points of which are equally dis- tant from a point within, called the centre. Mensuration treats of the meas:urement of llnesy surfaces, and volumes. ^Flg.21. ^ To compute the area of a square, a rectangle, a rhombus^ or a rhomboid.

From e and / describe two arcs, with the same radius, intersecting in g; then a line drawn from a to fj will be pei-peudicular to the line ftc. 2d Method (Fig. 48). — From any two » ^ • •s.-w —r^ points, d and c, at some distance apart in the given line, and with radii da and c« respectively, describe arcs cut- ting at a and e.

The line ea will then be perpendicular to the line uc at the point a, 3d Method (Fig. 51) or the 3, 4, and 5 Method. — From the point a on the given line measure off 4 inches, ot-4 feet, or 4 of any other unit, and with the same unit of measure describe an arc, with a as a centre and 3 units as a radius. Then from b describe an arc, with a radius of 5 units, cutting the first arc in c. Then ca will be the perpen- dicular. This method is particularly useful in laying out a right angle on the ground, or framing a house where the foot is used as the unit, and the lines laid off by straight edges. In laying out a right angle on the ground, the proportions of the triangle may be 30, 40, and 50, or any other multiple of 3, 4, and 5; and it can best be laid out with the tape. Thus, first measure off, say 40 feet from (c on the given line, then let one person hold the end of the tape at b, another hold the tape at the 80-foot mark at a, and a third person take hold of the tape at the 50-foot mark, with his thumb and finger, and pull the tape taut. The 50-foot mark will then be at the point c in the line of the pei*pendicular.

Measure off from A, on AE, any distance, -46, and at 6 draw a line perpendicular to AE. Measure off on this perpendicular be equal to Ab, and draw a line from A through c, and it will make an angle with AE of 45^. Problem 8. — From any point, A, on a given line, to draw a line which shall make any desired angle with the given line (Fig. 56). To perform this problem we must have a table of chords at hand (such as is found on pp. 85-'.)3), which we use as follows. Find in the table the length of chord to a radius 1, for the given angle. Then take any ra- ^ dius, as large as convenient, describe an arc of a circle be with A as a centre. Mul- tiply the chord of the angle, found in the table, by the length of the radius Ab^ and with the product as a new radius, and 6 as a centre, describe a short arc cutting be in d. Draw a line from A throngl: &, and it will make the desired aaglc with DE, Fig.56 GEOMETRICAL PROBLEMS 71 Example. — Draw a line from A on DE^ making an angle of 440 40' with DE. Solution. — We find that tlie largest convenient radius for our arc is 8 inches: so with ^ as a centre, and 8 inches as a radius, we describe the arc be. Then, looking in the table of chords, we find the chord for an angle or arc of 44° 40' to a radius 1 is 0.76. Mul- tiplying this by 8 inches, we have, for the length of our new radius, 6.08 inches, and with this as a radius, and 6 as a centre, we describe an arc cutting be in d. Ad will then be the line desired. Problem 9. — To biseet a given angle, as BAG (Fig. 57). With ^ as a centre, and any radius, descrl an arc, as eb.

PROBLEMS. 93 94 HIP AND JACK RAFTERS. Lengrtlis and Bevels of Hip and Jack Rafters. The lines ab and be in Fig. 89 represent the walls at the angle of a building; be is the seat of the hip-rafter, and (jf of a jack-rafter. Draw eh at right angles to be, and make it equal to the rise of the roof; join b and 7^, and hb will be the length of the hip-rafter. Through e draw di at right angles to be. Upon b, with the radius bh, describe the arc hiy cutting di in L Join b and i, and extend nf to meet bi in.; ; then r/j will be the length of the jack-rafter. The length of each jack-rafter is found in the same manner, — by ex- tending its seat to cut the line ht. From/ draw yik at right angles to /r/, also fl at right angles to be. Makefk equal to fl by the arc Ik, or make u^' equal to (ij by the arc./A-V then the angle at J will be the top bevel of the jack-rafters, and the one at h- the down bevel. Backhu/ of the hip-rnftoy. At any conv(Miient place in be (Fig. 8i)), as o, draw mn at right angles to be. From o describe a circle, tangent to bh, cutting be in s. Join m and h and n and b ; then these lines will form at s the proper angle for bevelling the top of the hip-rafter.

PART II. Strength of Materials, and Stability of Structures. UTTRODUCnON. the chapters constituting this part of the book, the author ideavored to present to architects and builders handy and e rules and tables for determining the strength or stability of ece of work they may have in hand. Every pains has been to present the rules in the simplest form consistent with accuracy; and it is believed that all constants and theories ced are fully up to the knowledge of the present day, some ! constants on transverse strength having but recently been lined. The rules for wrought-iron columns have lately been y changed by some engineers; but as the question of the th of wrought-iron columns has not yet been satisfactorily I, and as the formulas herein given undoubtedly err on the ide if at all, we have thought best not to change them, espe- as they are still used by many bridge engineers. question of the wind-pressure on roofs has not been taken as thorough manner as would be needed for pitch roofs of Teat span ; but for ordinary wooden roofs, and iron roofs not ling one hundred feet span, the method given in Chap. I. is sufficiently accurate. r one wishing to study the most accurate method of obtaining feet of the wind-pressure on roofs will find it in Professor 's excellent work on " Graphical Analysis of Roof Trusses." ©nclusion, the author recommends these chapters as present- icurate and modern rules, especially adapted to the require- of American practice. EXPLANATION OF SIGNS AND TERMS USED IN THE FOLLOTVING FORMULAS. Besides the usual arithmetical signs and characters in general use, the following characters and abbreviations will frequently be used : — The sign y^ means square root of number behind. ^ means cube root of number beliind. ( ) means that all the numbers between are to be taken as one quantity, means decimal parts; 2.5 = 2t^, or .46 = iVo. The letter A denotes the co-efficient of strength for beams one inch square, and one foot between the supports. C denotes resistance, in pounds, of a block of any material to crushing, per square inch of section. E denotes the modulus of elasticity of any material, in pounds per square inch, e denotes constant for stiffness of beams. F denotes resistance of any material to shearing, per square inch. B denotes the modulus of rupture of any material. aS denotes a factor of safety. T denotes resistance of any material to being pulled apart, in pounds, per square inch of cross-section. Breadth is used to denote the least side of a rectangular piece, and is always measured in inches. Depth denotes the vertical height of a beam or girder, and is always to be taken in inches, unless expressly stated otherwise. LetKjth denotes the distance between supports in feetf unless otlu*rwis(» specified. Abbreviations. — In order to shorten the formulas, it has ()ft(Mi been found necessary to use cerUin abbreviations; such as bet. Tor Ix'twiMjn, hot. for bottom, dist. for distance, diam. for diaimtcr, lior. tor horizontal, scj. for square, etc., which, however, can in no cast' Wiul to uncertainty as to their meaning. Wli( IV tlie word "ton" is used in this volume, it always means 2(M)0 pounds. CHAPTER T. DEFINITIONS OF TERMS USED IN MECHANICS. The following terms frequently occur in treating of mechanical construction, and it is essential that their meaning be well under- stood. Mechanics is the science which treats of the action of forces. Applied Mechanics treats of the laws of mechanics which relate to works of human art ; such as beams, trusses, arches, etc. Rest is the relation between two points, when the straight line joining them does not change in length or direction. A body is at rest relatively to a point, when any point in the body is at rest relatively to the first-mentioned point. Motion is the relation between two points, when the straight line Joining them changes in length or direction, or in both. A body moves relatively to a point, when any point in the body moves relatively to the point first mentioned. Force is that which changes, or tends to change, the state of a body in reference to rest or motion. It is a cause regarding the essential nature of which we are ignorant. We cannot deal with forces properly, but only with the laws of their action. Kqiiilibrium is that condition of a body in which the forces acting upon it balance or neutralize each other. Statics is that part of Applied Mechanics which treats of the conditions of equilibrium, and is divided into: — a. Statics of rigid bodies. 6. Hydrostatics. In building we have to deal only with the former. Structures are artificial constnictions in which all the parts are intended to be in«equilibrium and at rest, as in the case of a bridge or roof-truss. They consist of two or more solid bodies, called pieces, which are connected at portions of their surfaces called joints. There are three conditions of equilibrium in a structure; viz. : — I. The forces exerted on the whole structure must balance each other. These forces are: — a. The weight of the structure. h. The load it carries. 126 DEFINITIONS OF TERMS c. The supporting pressures, or resistance of the foundation?, called external forces. II. The forces exerted on each piece must balance each other. These forces are: — rt. The weight of the piece. b. The load it carries. c. The resistance of its joints. III. The forces exerted on each of the parts into which any piece may be supposed to be divided must balance each other. Stability consists in the fulfilment of conditions I. and II., that is, the ability of the structure to resist displacement of its parts. Streng'th consists in the fulfilment of condition III., that is, the ability of a piece to resist breaking. Stiffness consists in the ability of a piece to resist bending. The theory of structures is divided into two parts; viz. : — I. That which treats of strength and stiffness, dealing only with single pieces, and generally known as strength of liiaterialH* II. That which treats of stability, dealing with structures. Stress. — The load or system of forces acting on any piece of material is often denoted by the term " stress,'* and the word will be so used in the following pages. The i)} tensity of the stress per square inch on any normal sur- face of a solid is the total stress divided by the area of the section in square inches. Thus, if we had a bar ten feet long and two inches square, with a load of 8000 poimds pulling in the direction of its length, the stress on any normal section of the rod would be 8000 pounds ; and the intensity of the stress per square inch would be 80{K) -f 4, or 2000 pounds. Strain. — When a solid body is subjected to any kind of stress, an alteration is produced in the volume and figure of the body, and this alteration is called the ** strain." In the case of the bar given al)ovo, the strain would be the amount that the bar would stretch under its load. The Ultimate Stronprth, or Breaking: Load, of a body is the load riHiuircd to prothK-e fracture in some specified way. The Safe Load is the load that a piece can support without impairing: its strciii^tii. Factors of Safety. — When not otherwise specified, & factor of safety means the ratio in which the breaking load exceeds the safe load. In designing a i)i{^ce of material to sustain a certain load, it is required that it shall be perfectly safe under all circum- stances; and henc(^ ii. is necessary to make an allowance for any defects in the material, workmanship, etc. It is obviona, that, for USED IN MECHANICS. 127 Is of different composition, different factors of safety will ired. Thus, iron being more homogeneous than wood, and »le to defects, it does not require so great a factor of safety, ^in, different kinds of strains require difiPerent factors of Thus, a long wooden column or strut requires a greater »f safety than a wooden beam. As the factors thus vary irent kinds of strains and materials, we will give the proper of safety for the different strains when considering the ce of the material to those strains. iiiction between Dead and Live liOad. — The dead load," as used in mechanics, means a load that is ap- j imperceptible degrees, and that remains steady; such as 3;ht of the structure itself. ive load '' is one that is applied suddenly, or accompanied .brations; such as swift trains travelling over a railway- or a force exerted in a moving machine. \ been found by experience, that the effect of a live load on or other piece of material is twice as severe as that of a id of the same weight: hence a piece of material designed r a live load should have a factor of safety twice as large lesigned to carry a dead load. load produced by a crowd of people walking on a floor is considered to produce an effect which is a mean between a dead and live load, and a factor of safety is adopted modulus of Rupture is a constant quantity found in aulas for strength of iron beams, and is eighteen times the : the constant " A." ulus of Elasticity. — If we take a bar of any elastic 1, one inch square, and of any length, secured at one end, he other apply a force pulling in the direction of its length, i find by careful measurement that the bar has been stretched ;ated by the action of the force. if we divide the total elongation in inches by the original )f the bar in inches, we shall have the elongation of the bar b of length; and, if we divide the pulling-forre per square this latter quantity, we shall have what is known as the s of elasticity. e we may define the hkkIhIiis of fUintirUij an the pullinfj or uiing force per unit of .'section divided by the elongation iresnion i)er unit of Unfjth. \ example of the method of determining the modulus of y of any, material, we v^ill take the following: — )8e we have a bar of wroiight-iron, two inches square and ten feet long, securely fastened at one end, and to the other end we apply a pulling-force of 40,000 pounds. This force causes the bar to stretch, and by careful measurement we find the elongation to be 0.0414 of an inch. Now, as the bar is ten feet, or 120 inches, long, if we divide 0.0414 by 120, we shall have the elongation of the bar per unit of length. Perfonning this operation, we have as the result 0.00034 of an inch. As the bar is two inches square, the area of cross-section is four s(iuare inches, and hence the pulling-force per square inch is 10,000 pounds. Then, dividing 10,000 by 0.00084, we have as the modulus of elasticity of the bar 29,400,000 pounds. This is the method generally employed to determine the modulus of elasticity of iron ties; but it can also be obtained from the deflection of beams, and it is in that way that the values of the modulus for most woods have been foiuid. Another definition of the modulus of elasticity, and which is a natural consequence of the one just given, is the number of pounds that would be required to stretch or shorten a bar one inch square by an amount equal to its length, provided that the law of pei-fect elasticity would hold good for so great a range. The mod- uhis of elasticity is generally denoted by E, and is used in the detomiination of the stiffness of beams. Moment. — If we take any solid body, and pivot it at any point, and apply a force to the body, acting in any direction except in a line with the pivot, we shall produce rotation of the body, provided the force is sufficiently strong. This rotation is produced by what is called the moment of the force; and the moment of a force about any given point or pivot is the product of the force into the perpendicular distance from the pivot to the lin(i of action of the force, or,an common phrase, the product cf the force into the arm with which it acta. The Centre of Gravity of a body is the point through which tlie resultant of the weight of the body always acts, no mat- ter in what, position the body be. If a body be suspended at its centre of tjjravity, and revolved In any direction, it will always be in e<iuilihriinn. (For centre of gravity of surfaces, lines, and soliils, see Chap. IV.) CLASSIFJCATION OF STRAINS. 120 CI.A88IFICATION OF STRAINS WHICH MAT BE PRODUCED IN A SOLID BOD7. The dififerent strains to which building-materials may be exposed are: — I. Tension, as in the case of a weight suspended from one end of a rod, rope, tie-bar, eta; the other end being fixed, tending to stretch or lengthen the fibres. II. Shearing Strain^ as in the case of treenails, pins in bridges, etc., where equal forces are applied on opposite sides in such a manner as to tend to force one part over the adjacent one. III. Conipressiony as in the case of a weight resting on top of a column or post, tending to compress the fibres. IV. Transversa or Cross Strain, as in the case of a load on a beam, tending to bend it. V. Torsion, a twisting strain, which seldom occurs in build- ing-construction, though quite frequently in machinery. 130 FOUNDATIONS. CHAPTER n. FOUNDATIONS. The following chapter on Foundations is intended to furnish the reader with only a general knowledge of the subject, and to enable him to be sure that he is within the limits of safety if he follows what is here given. For foundations of large works, or buildings upon soil of questionable firmness, the compressibility of the soil should be determined by experiments. The term ^'foundation" is used to designate all that portion of any structure which serves only as a basis on which to erect the superstructure. This term is sometimes applied to that portion of the solid mate- rial of the earth upon which the structure rests, and also to the artificial arrangements which may be made to support the base. In the following pages these will be designated by the term " foundation-bed." Object of Foundations.— The object to be obtained in the construction of any foundation is to form such a solid base for the superstructure that no movement shall take place after its erection. But all structures built of coarse masonry, whether of stone, or brick, will settle to a certain extent; and, with a few exceptions, all soils will become compressed under the weight of almost any building. Our main object, therefore, is not to prevent settlement entirely, but to insure that it shall be uniform ; so that, after the structure is finished, it will have no cnacks or flaws, however irregularly it may be disposed over the aroa of its site. Foundations Classed. — Foundations maybe divided into two classes : — Class I. — Foundations constructed in situations where the natural soil is sufficienthj flnn to bear the weight of the intended structure. Class II. — Foundations in situations where an artyicicU bear^ ing-stratum must be formed, in consequence of the 9rftne89 or looseness of the soil. FOUNDATIONS. 131 Each of these two great classes may be subdivided into two divisions: — a. Foundations in situations wliere water offers no impediment to the execution of the work. 6. Foundations under water. It is seldom that architects design buildings whose foundations are under water; and, as this division of the subject enters rather deeply into the science of engineering, we shall not discuss it here. Boringf. — Before we can decide wliat kind of foundation it will be necessary to build, we must know the nature of the subsoil. If not already known, this is deterininetl,* ordinarily, by digging a trench, or making a pit, close to the site of the proposed works, to a depth sufficient to allow the different strata to be seen. For important structures, the nature of the subsoil is often de- termined by boring with the tools usually employed for this pur- pose. When this method is employed, the different kinds and thickness of the strata are determined by examining the speci- mens brought up by the auger used in boring. Foundations of tlie First Class.— -The foundations in- cluded under this class may be divided into two cases, according to the different kinds of soil on which the foundation is to be built : —% Case I. — Foundations on soil composed of mateiHals whose stability is not aff^cteA by saturation with water, and which are firm enough to support the weight of the structure. Under this case belong, — Foundations on Rock. — To prepare a rock foundation for being bfuilt upon, all that is generally required is to cut away the loose and decayed portions of the rock, and to dress the rock to a plane surfsice as nearly perpendicular to the direction of the pressure as is practicable; or, if the rock forms an inclined plane, to cut a series of plane surfaces, like those of steps, for the wall to rest on. If there are any fissures in the rock, they should be filled with con- crete or rubble masonry. Concrete is better for this purpose, as, when once set, it is nearly incompressible under any thing short of a crushing-force; so that it forms a base almost as solid as the rock itself, while the compression of the mortar joints of the masonry is certain to cause some irregular settlement. If it is unavoidably necessary that some parts of the foundation shall start from a lower level than others, care should be taken to keep the mortar Joints as close as possible, or to execute the lower portions of the work in cement, or some hard-setting mortar: other- wise the foundations will settle unequally, and thus cause much injury to the superstructure. The load placed on the rock should at no time exceed one-eighth of that necessary to crush it. Pro' 132 FOUNDATIONS. fessor Rankine gives the following examples of the actual intensity of the pressure per square foot on some existing rock founda- tions: — Average of ordinary cases, the rock being at least as strong as the strongest reil bricks 2000(; Pressures at tlie base of St. KoIIox chimney (450 feet below the summit) On a layer of strong concrete or beton, 6 feet deep .... 0070 On sandstone below the beton, so soft that it crumbles in the hand 4000 The last example sliows the pressure which is safely borne in practice by one of the weakest substances to which the name of rock can be applied. M. Jules Graudard, C.E., states, that, on a rocky ground, the Roquefavour aqueduct exerts a pressure of 26,800 pounds to the square foot. A bed of solid rock is unyielding, and appears at first sight to offer all the advantages of a secure foundation. It is gen- erally found in practice, however, that, in lai^ge buildings^ part of the fowidations will not rest on the rock, but on the adjacent soil; and as the soil, of whatever material it may be composed, is sure to be compressed somewhat, irregular settlement will almost invariably take place, and give much trouble. The only remedy in such a case is to make the bed for the foundation resting on the soil as firm as possible, and lay the wall, to the level of the rock, in cement or hard-setting mortar. Foundation on Compact Stony Earths, such as Graieel or Sand. — Strong gravel may be considered as one of the best soils to build upon ; as it is almost incompressible, is not affected by exposure to the atmosphere, and is easily levelled. Sand is also almost incompressible, and forms an excellent foun- dation as long as it can be kept from escaping; but as it has no cohesion, and acts like a fluid when exposed to running water, it should be treated with great caution. The foundation bed in soils of this kind is prepared by digging a trench from four to six feet deep, so that the foundation may be started below the reacli of the disintegrating effects of frost. The bottom of the trench is levelled ; and, if parts of it are required to be at different levels, it is broken into steps. Care shoulil l)e taken to keep the surface-water from running into the trench; and, if necessary, drains should be made at the bottom to carry away the water. The weight resting on the bottom of the trench should be pro* portional to the resistance of the material forming the bed. FOUNDATIONS. 133 Mr. Gaudard says that a load of 10,500 to 18,300 pounds per square foot has been put upon close sand in tlie foundations of Gorai Bridge, and on gravel in the Lock Ken Viaduct at Bordeaux. In the bridge at Nantes, there is a load of 15,200 pounds to the square foot on sand; but some settlement has already taken place. Ilankine gives the greatest intensity of pressure on foundations in firm earth at from 2500 to 3500 pounds per square foot In order to distribute the pressure arising from the weight of the structure over a greater surface, it is usual to give additional breadth to the foundation courses: this increase of breadth is called the spread. In compact, strong earth, the spread is made one and a half times the thickness of the wall, and, in ordinary earth or sand, twice that thickness. Case II. — Foundations on soils firm enough to support the weight of the strtictiire, but whose fttaMUty l8 affected by water. The principal soil imder this class, with which we have to do, is a clay soil. In this soil the bed is prepared by digging a trench, as in rocky soils; and the foundation must be sure to start below the frost-line, for the effect of frost in clay soils is very great. The soil is also much affected by the action of water; and hence the ground should be well drained before the work is begun, and the trenches so arranged that the water shall not remain in them. And, in general, the less a soil of this kind is exposed to the air and weather, and the sooner it is protected from exposure, the better for the work. In building on a clay bank, great caution should be used to secure thorough drainage, that the clay may not have a tendency to slide daring wet weather. The safe load for stiff clay and marl is given by Mr. Gaudard at from 5500 to 11,000 pounds per square foot. Under the cylindrical piers of the Szegedin Bridge in Hungary, the soil, consisting of clay intermixed with fine sand, bears a load of 13,300 pounds to the square foot; but it was deemed expedient to increase its sup- porting power by driving some piles in the interior of the cylinder, and also to protect the cylinder by sheeting outside. Mr. McAlpine, M. Inst. C.E., in building a high wall at Albany, N.Y., succeeded in safely loading a wet clay soil with two tons to the square foot, but with a settlement depending on the depth of the excavation. In order to prevent a great influx of water, and consequent softening of the soil, he surrounded the excavation with a puddle trench ten feet high and four feet wide, and he also spread a layer of coarse gravel on the bottom. Foundations in Soft Eurths. — There are three materials in gen- eral use for forming an aitificial bearing-stratum in soft soils. 134 FOUNDATIONS. Whichever material is employed, the bed is first prepared by ezca^ vating a trench sufficiently deep to place the foundation-courses below the action of frost and rain. Great caution should be used in cases of this kind to prevent unequal settling. The bottom of the trench is made level, and covered with a bed of stones, sand, or concrete. Stones. — When stone is used, the bottom of the trench should In; paved with rubble or cobble stones, well settled in place by ramming. On this paving, a bed of concrete is then laid. Sand. — In all situations where the ground, although soft, is of sufficient consistency to confine the sand, this material may be used with many advantages as regards both the cost and the stability of the work. The quality which sand possesses, of distributing the pressure put upon it, in both a horizontal and vertical direction, makes it especially valuable for a foundation bed in this kind of soil; as the lateral pressure exerted against the sides of the founda- tion pit greatly relieves the bottom. There are two methods of using sand; viz., in layers and as piles. In fonning a stratum of sand, it is spread in layers of about nine inches in thickness, and each layer well rammed before the next one is spread. The total depth of sand used should be sufficient to admit of the pressiu^ on the upper surface of the sand being distributed over the entire bottom of the trench. Sand-piling is a very economical and efficient method of forming a foundation under some circumstances. It would not, however, be effective in very loose, wet soils; as the sand would work into the surrounding ground. Sand-piling is executed by making holes in the soil, or in the bottom of the trench, about six or seven inches in diameter, and about six feet deep, and filling them with damp sand, well rammed so as to force it into every cavity. In situations where the stability of piles arises from the pressure of the ground around them, sand-piles are found of more service than timber ones, for the reason that the timber-pile transmits pressure only in a vertical direction, while the sand-pile transmits it over the whole surface of the hole it fills, thus acting on a large area of bearing-surface. The ground above the piles should be covered with planking, concrete, or masonry, to prevent its being forced up by the lateral pressure exerted by the piles: and, on the stratum thus formed, the fomidation walls may be built in the usual manner. Fouiidatious on Piles. — Where the soil upon which we wish to build is not firm enough to support the foundation, one of the most common metliods of fonnhig a solid foundation bed is FOUNDATIONS. 136 by driving wooden piles into tlie soil, ami placing the foundation wails upon these. The piles are generally round, and have a length of ahout twenty times iheir mean diameter of cross-section. The diameter of the hcjid varies from nine to eighteen inches. The piles should be straight grained, and free from knots and ring strokes. Fir, beach, oak, anil Florida yellow-pine are the best woods for piles; though spruce and hemlock are very commonly used. Where piles are exposed to tide-water, they are generally driven with their bark on. In other cases, it is not essential. Piles which are driven through hard ground, generally require to have an iron hoop fixed tightly on their heads to prevent them from splitting, and also to be shod with iron shoes, either of cast or wrought iron. Long piles may be divided into two classes, — those which trans- mit the load to a firm soil, thus acting as pillars; and those where the pile and its load are wholly supported by the friction of the earth on the sides of the pile. In order to ascertain the safe load which it will do to put upon a pile of the first class, it is only necessary to calculate the safe crushing-strength of the wood; but, for piles of the second and more common class, it is not so easy to determine the maximum load which they will safely support. Many writers have endeavored to give rules for calculating the effect of a given blow in sinking a pile; but investigations of this kind are of little practical value, because we can never be in pos- session of sufficient data to obtain even an approximate result. The effect of each blow on the pile will depend on the momentum of the blow, the velocity of the ram, the relative weights of the ram and the pile, the elasticity of the pile-head, and the resistance offered by the ground through which the pile is passing; and, as the last-named conditions cannot well be ascertained, any calcula- tions in which they are only assumed must of necessity Ikj mere guesses. I^ad on Piles. — Professor Rankine gives the limits of the safe load on pilesy based upon practical examples, as follows : — For piles driveil till they reach the firm ground, 1000 pomids per square inch of ar^ of head. For piles standing in soft ground by friction, 200 pounds per square inch of area of head. But as, in the latter case, so much depends upon the character of the soil in which, the piles are driven, such a gcneml rule as the above is hardly to be reconunended. Several rules for the bearing-load on piles have been given, Perhaps tho nile most commonly given is that of Major Sanders, United-States En«jint;er. He experimented largely at Fort Dela' ware, and in 1851 gave the following rule as reliable for ordinary pikMlriving. Sanders's Rule for determining the load for a common wooden pile, driven until it sinks through only small and nearly equal distances under successive blows : — ,, , , , . „ weight of liammer in lbs. X fall in inches Safe load m lbs. = SXslnkin^t iS^blo^v^ Mr. John C. Trautwine, C.E., in his pocket-book for engineers, gives a rul(i which appears to agree very well with actual results. His rule is expressed as follows: — cube root of weight of x O^.*! Extreme load in _ fall in feet ha m mer in Ib:^. "'"^^ tons of 2240 lbs. ~ Last sinking in inches -h 1 For the safe load he recommends that one-half the extreme load should be taken for i)iles thoroughly driven in firm soils, and one- fourth when driven in river-mud or marsh. According to Mr. Trautwine, the French engineers consider a pile safe for a load of 25 tons when it refuses to sink under a liam- mer of 1344 pounds falling 4 feet. The test of a pile having been sufficiently driven, acconling to the best authorities, is that it shall not sink more than one-fifth of an incli under thirty blows of a ram weighing 800 pounds, falling 5 f(H>t at each blow. A more common rule is to consider the pile fully driven wlien it does not sink more than one-fourth of an inch at the last blow of a ram weighing 2500 pounds, falling 80 feet. In ordinary pile-driving for buildings, however, the piles often sink more than this at the last blow; but, as the piles are seldom loaded to their full capacity, it is not necessary to be so i)articular as in tlie foundations of engineering structures. A common practice witli :ircliitects is to specify the lengih of the piles to be usi»d, and the ])iles ;in» driven imtil their heads are juat al)Ove ground, and then left to he levelled off afterwards. Kxamplo of I^ile Foundation. — As an example of the ni"thf/!l of di'termining the necessary numl>er of plh»8 to 8up]K)rt a i:iv«'n building, we will determine tho numlKT of piles nM|ulr«Ml to MUi)port the sidivwalls of a warehouse (of which a vertical sec- tlon is shown in Fig. 1). The walls aro of brick, and the weight may be taken at 110 pounds per cubic foot of masonry. The piles are to be driven in two rows, two feet on centres; and It is found that a pile 20 feet long and 10 inches at the top will sink Fig. 1. one inch under a 1200-pound hammer falling 20 feet after the pile has been entirely driven into the soil. What distance should the piles ba on centres lengthwise of the wall ? 4 138 FOUNDATIONS. Hy calculation wc find tliat the wall contains 157i^ cubic feet of masonry per running foot, and hence weiglis 17,306 pounds. The load from the floors which comes upon the wall is: — From the first floor 1500 lbs. From the second floor loSO ll>s. From the third floor 1380 lbs. From the fourth floor 790 lbs. From the fifth floor 720 lbs. From the sixth floor 720 lbs. From the roof 240 lbs. Total 6730 lbs. Hence the total Ayeight of the wall and its load per running foot is 24,0:56 pounds. Tlie load which one of the piles will support is, by Sanders's rule, 1200 X 240 — ^^"^7~f — — 36000 pounds. By Trautwine's rule, using a factor of safety of 2.5, the safe load would be (^20 X 1200 X 0.023 — *j 5 X (14-1 ) ~ ^'^ ^^^^ ^^^ ^^'^ pounds), or 33600 pounds. Then one pair of piles would support 72,000, or 67,200 pounds, according to which rule we take. Dividing these numbers by the weight of one foot of the wall and its load, we find, that, by Sandei-s's rule, one pair of piles will support 3 feet of the wall, and, by Trautwine's rule, 2.8 feet of wall: hence the piles should be placed 2 feet 9 inches or 3 feet on centres. In very heavy buildings, heavy timbers are sometimes bolted to the tops of the piles, and the foundation walls built on these. In Boston, Mass., a large part of the city is built upon made land, and hence the buildings have to be supported by pile founda- tions. The Building Laws of the city require that all buildings "exceeding thirty-five feet in height (with pile foundation) shAll have not less than two rows of piles under all external and party walls, and the piles shall be spaced not over three feet on centres in the direction of the length of the wall." ^l.s (m example of the load which ordinary piles in the made land of Boston will support, it may be stated that the piles under Trinity ('hurch in Boston support two tons each, approKimately. For engineering works, various kinds of iron piles are used; baft they are too rarely used for foundations of buildingB to come within the scope of this chapter. For a description of these FOUNDATIONS. 139 le reader should consult some standard work on engineering, good description of iron piles is given in "Wheeler's Civil jering," and also in " Trautwine's Handbook." icrete Foundation Beds. — Concrete is largely used ndation beds in soft soil, and is a very valuable material for rpose; as it affords a firm solid bed, and can be spread out > distribute the pressure over a large area. ;rete is an artificial compound, generally made by mixing cement with sand, water, and some hard material, as bi*oken slag, bits of brick, earthenware, burnt clay, shingle, etc. e is any choice of the materials forming the base of the :e, the preference should be given to fragments of a some- K>rous nature, such as pieces of brick or limestone, rather > those with smooth surfaces. {See page liSa.) broken material used in the concrete is sometimes, for con- 2e, called the agrjregate, and the mortar in which it is incased, sitrix.

This process ;ted to by the best authorities, on the ground that the heavy :ht portions separate while falling, and that the concrete is •re not uniform throughout its mass. best method is to wheel the concrete in barrows, immedi- fter mixing, to the place where it is to be laid, gently tipping position, and carefully ramming into layers about twelve thick. After each layer has been allowed to set, it should pt clean, wetted, and made rough, by means of a pick, for the yer. ; contractors make the concrete courses the exact width d, keeping up the sides with boards, if the trench is too This is a bad practice; for when the sides of the founcla- ;s are carefully trimmed, and tlie concrete rammed up solidly them, the concrete is less liable to ha crushed and broken it has entirely consolidated. It is therefore desirable that K:ifications for concrete work should require that the whole of the excavation be filled, and that, if the trenches are ted too wide, the extra amount of concrete be furnished at itractor's expense. Tete made with hydraulic lime is sometimes designated as 140 FOUNDATIONS. The pressure allowed on a concrete bed should not exceed one> tenth part of its resistance to crushing. Trautwine gives as the average crushing-strength of concrete forty tons per square foot. Foiiudations in Compressible SoiL— The great diffi- cully mot with in fonuing a iinu bed in compressible soils arises from the nature of the soil, and its yielding in all directions under pressure. (See page 144.) There are several methods which have been successfully em- ployed in soils of this kind. I. When the compressible material is of a moderate depth, the excavation is made to extend to the firm soil beneath, and the fomulation put in, as in firm soils. The principal objection to this method is the expense, which would often be very grea.t. II. A second method is to drive piles through the soft soil into the tlrm soil beneath. The piles are then cut oif at a given level and a timber platform laid upon the top of the piles, which serves as a support for the foundation, and also ties the tops of the piles together. III. A modification of the latter method is to use shorter piles^ which are only driven in the compressible soil. The platform is made to extend over so large an area that the intensity of the press- ure per square foot is within the safe limits for this particular soil. lY. Another modification of the second method consists in using piles of only five or six inches in diameter, and only five or six feet long, and placing them as near together as they can be driven. A platform of timber is tlien placed on the piles, as in the second metho<l. Tht^ object of the short piles is to compress the soil, and make it tirmor. ''This practice is one not to be recommended; its effect bein<i^ usually to pound up the soil, and to bring it into a state which can best Xh', described by comparing it to batter-pudding." * V. Still another method is to surround the site of the work with shccL-piling (flat piles driven close together, so as to fonn a sheet), to prcvi>nt the esca^Mi of the soil, which is then consolidated by driving ]>iles into it at short distunires from each otlier. The piles are then sawn oft' level, and the ground excavated between them for two or three feet, and filled up with concrete: the whole is tlien planked ovt;r to re(!eive the superstructure. The great point to be attended to in building foundations in soils of this kind is to distribute the weight of the structui'e equally 1 Dobeon on Fouiidatloiirt.

Planking for Poiinaation Beds.— In erecting buildings □n soft groimd. where a large briiring-siirface ia required, planking may be resorted to with great advantage, provided tbo timber can lie kept from decay. If the ground is wet ami the timber good, there ia little to fear in thia respect; but in a dry aituatlon, or one expoaed to alternations of wet and dry, no dependence can be placed on unprepared timber. There are several methods cm- ployed for the presei-vation of timber, such as kyanlzing oi' creo- Mting: and the timber used for fouiidatlona should be trcaleil by one of these methods. The advantage of timber Is, tliat it will resist a great cross-strain with very triOing flexure; and therefore a wide fooling may l>e ob- tained without any excessive spreailing of the bottom courses of tbe masonry. The best method of employing planking under walls is to cut the stuff into short lengths, which should be placctd acroKS Uie foundation, and tied longitudinally by planking laid to the width of the bottom course of masonry in tlie direction of the length of the wail, and firmly spiked to the bottom planking. Another good method of using planking ia to lay down sleepers on the ground, and fill to their top with cement, and then place tlie planking on the level surface thus formed. For the cross'timbers, four-Inch by six-inch timber, laid flatwise, will answer in ordinary FouiKlations for Cliimiteys. — As examples of tlie foun- dations i'ci|uired for very high chimneys, we quote the following front a treatise on foundations, in the latter part of a work on "Foundations and Foundation Walls," i»y George T.

For example, the pressure on the foundation of a tall chimney should be considerably less than that of the low mas- sive foundation of a fireproof vault. In the former case a slight inequality of bearing power, and consequent unequal settling, might endanger the stability of the structure; while in the latter no serious harm would result. The pressure per unit of area should be less for a light structure subject to the passage of heavy loads— as, for example, a railroad viaduct — than for a heavy struct- ure, subject only to a quiescent load, since the shock and jar of the moving load are far more serious than the heavier quiescent load." The following list of actual known weight on different soils will give a very good idea of what has been done in actual practice. Rock. — St. Rollox chimney, poorest kind of sandstone, 2 tons per square foot. Clay. — Chimney, McCormick Reaper Works, Chicago, 1^ tons per square foot on dry, hard clay. Capitol at Albany, N.

Steel rails were first used embedded in concrete, but they oflfer, however, comparatively little resistance to deflection, and for this reason, if allowed to project beyond the masonry to any considerable length, the concrete filling is liable to crack, and thus the strength of the foundation become impaired. Steel I-beams, more recently used for this purpose, are found to be superior in every respect. A greater depth can be adopted, the deflection thus reduced to a minimum and a sufficient saving effected to more than compensate for their additional cost per pound. The foundation should be prepart-d (see illustration, p. 146) by first laying ji bed of concrete to a depth of from 4 to 1*3 inches and then placing upon this a row of I-beams at right angles to the face of the wall. In the case of heavy ])iei's, the beams may be crossed in two directions. Their distances apart, from centre to centre, may vary from 9 to 24 inches according to circumstances, i.e,, length of their projection beyond the masonry, thickness of concrete, esti- mated pressure per square foot, etc. They should be plaoed at least far enough apart to permit the introduction of the oonczeto * Ira O. Baker, American Architect, Novonber 8, 18B8. FOUNDATIONa 145 filling and its proper tamping between the beams. Unless the concrete is of unusual thickness, it will not be adyisable to exceed 20 inches spacing, since otherwise the concrete may not be of suffi- cient strength to properly transmit the upward pressure to the beams. The most useful application of this method of founding is in localities where a thin and comparatively compact stratum overlies another of a more yielding nature. By using steel beams in such cases, the requisite spread at the base may be obtained without either penetrating the firm upper stratum or carrying the footing-courses to such a height as to encroach unduly upon the basement-room .

Chicago Foundations*'" — The architects and builders of Chicago probabijT have to deal with the most unfavorable condi- tions for securing a good ^foundation for their heavy buildings of any people in the world. 1 he soil under the central part of the city consists of a black loamy clay, which is tolerably firm at the surface, and will sustain a load of from one to three tons per foot, depending upon locality. A few feet below the natural surface of the ground the soil becomes quite soft, growing more and more so the deeper the excavation is carried, and at a depth of from 12 to 18 feet it is so yielding that nothing can be placed upon it with any reliance. Nor is this all. It has been discovered, by many failures in buildings, that there is a broad subterranean layer of soft mud which lies directly across the most heavily built portion of the city, extending under the Post- office, and reaching from the lake to the river, a distance of three- quarters of a mile. The first of the larger structures were built with continuous foundation walls, with wide footings, the width being proportioned tx) the loads bearing upon them. This method, however, did not prove successful, as it was foimd that the wall will settle more than a pier, and the comers of the wall will settle less than the centre. After experiments of one kind and another, it has come to be the accepted practice in Chicago of dividing the foundation into iso- lated piers, the footing of each pier being carefully proportioned according to the load upon it, its position in the building, char- acter of the superstructure, etc., so that all shall settle at exactly the same rate without any crackings or detriment to the super structure. The footings of the piers are built of steel beams and concrete, as described on page 145, except that the beams are often crossed three and four times ; in this way a great spreading is obtained in a small height. In determining the area of the footings, the ground is assumed to be capable of sustaining a safe load of from 1| to 2^ tons per square foot. The loads on the piers of the Board of Trade building vary from 2| to S^ tons per square foot. The size of the footings under the piers and the corners is made less than under the walls, to offset the difference in settlement of the different portions of the building. •^-.^ * 0. H. BlMkall, in American Architect, p. 147, Vol. XXUI. 148 FOUNDATIONS. It is found that a heavy pier will sink proportionally more than a light one, so that the area under the larger piers is made relatively greater than under the smaller ones. Again, it is necessary to take into account the material of which the superstructure is to be built. Thu?, a footing under a brick wall i^ made larger than a footing under a line of iron columns, so that if both footings aro loaded with the same weight, thiit under the columns will settle the most, to allow for the compression in the joints of the mason- work. It is impossible to build heavy buildings on the Chicago w)il without settlement, and the architect must therefore plan his build- ing so that all parts shall settle equally, and this has been success- fully done in many of the largest buildings. In a building where the footings aro proportioned to give a bear- ing weight on the ground of 2+ tons per square foot, it is esti- mated that the building will settle about 4 inches altogether. Piling has been successfully used under several buildings in Chicago, and there seems to bo no reason why it should not be more extensively resorted to. In the construction of the large grain elevators which are seat> tercd through the city the loads are so excessive, reaching as high as six tons per foot, that it would be impracticable to support them on ordinary footings, and piling has been resorted to. The piles are driven a distance of twenty to forty feet down to hard-pan, cap[)ed by wooden sleepers, with heavy wooden cross-beams and solid planking to receive the masonry. CONCBETE FOOTING FOB FOUNDATIONS. 148a OONORSTB FOQ!nNQ> FOR FOUNDATIONS. For the footings of foundations in nearly all kinds of soil where piles are not used, the writer believes a good concrete to be prefer- able to even the best dimension stone, for the reason that it acts as one piece of masonry and not as individual blocks of stone, and if made of sufficient thickness it will possess sufficient transverse strength to span any weak place in the soil beneath, if not of large area. When the best brands of Portland cement are used, the propor- tions may be as follows : One part Portland cement ; 3 parts clean sharp sand ; 5 parts chip stone, in sizes not exceeding 2 x 1^ x 3 inches. Using these pro- portions, one barrel of cement will make from 22 to 26 cubic feet of concrete. The above proportions were used in the concrete for the founda- tions of the Mutual Life Insurance Company's Building, New York City When the cement is not of the best quality, or other cement than Portland cement is used, more cement should be used with the other material. Using a cement made in the West, the author specifies that one part of cement to two of sand and four of broken stone should be used, and the result has been very satisfactory. It will generally be found wise to keep an inspector constantly on the ground while the concrete is being put in, as the temptation to the contractor to economize on the cement is very great. In mixing the concrete, the stone, sand, and cement should be thrown into the mortar box in the order named , and while one man turns on the water two or more men should rapidly and thoroughly work the material back and forth with shovels, when it should be imiuediatelv carried to the trenches. The concrete should be deposited in layers not over six inches thick, and each layer \\ell rammed. If one layer dries before the next is deposited it should be well wet on top, just before depositing the next layer. Care should be exercised to see that the trenches are not dug wider than the desired width of the footings ; and also in mixing the concrete, not to use more water than is necessary to bring the mass to a pudding-like consistency, as otherwise the cement may be washed away. 148^ COST OF CONCRETE. COST OF OONORSTB. The cost of labor in mixing concrete, when the proper facilities are provided, need not exceed three cents a cubic foot, and four cents is a liberal allowance, with wages at two dollars a day. The vunount of materials required to make 100 cubic feet of concrete may be taken as follows : proportion of 1 to 6, 5 bbls. cement (original package) and 4.4 yards of stone and sand ; proportion of 1 to 8, 3.9 bbls. of cement and 4i yards of aggregates. The cost of concrete at the present time in Denver is about thirty cents per cubic foot. The weight of concrete varies from 130 to 140 lbs. per cubic foot, according to the material used, granite aggregates making nat- urally the heaviest concrete. MASONRY WALLS. 149 CHAPTER III. MASONRT TV ALLS. Footingr Courses. — In commencing the foundation walls of a building, it is customary to spread the bottom courses or the masonry considerably beyond the face of the wall, whatever be the character of the foundation bed, unless, perhaps, it be a solid rock bed, in which case the spreading of the walls would be useless. These spread courses are technically known as " footing courses." They answer two important purposes : — :ist, By distributing the weight of the structure over a larger area of bearing-surface, tlie Uability to vertical settlement from the compression of the ground is greatly diminished. 2d, By increasing the area of the base of the wall, they add to its stability, and form a protection against the danger of the work being thrown out of "plumb" by any forces that may act against it. ... Footings, to have any useful effect, must be securely bonded into the body of the work, and have sufficient strength to resist the violent cross-strains to which they are exposed. Footings of Stone Foundations. — As, the lower any stone is placed in a building, the greater the weight it has to sup- port and the risk arising from any defects in the laying and dress- ing of the stone, the footing courses should be of strong stone laid on bed^ with the upper and lower faces dressed true. By laying on. bed is me^nt laying the stone the same way that it lay before quarryin{]j. In la3^ng the footing courses, no back joints should be allowed beyond the face of the upper work, except where the footings are in double courses; and every stone should bond into the body of the work several inches at least. Unless this is attended to, the footings will not receive the weight of the superstructure, and will be useless, as is shown in Fig. 1. In proportion to the weight of the superstructure, the projection of each footing course beyond the one above it must be reduced, or the cross-strain thrown on the projecting portion of the masonry will rend ft from top to bottom^ as shown in Fig. 2. la- boildllig 1st)9e mlMses of work, such as the abutments of 150 MASONRY WALLS. bridges and the like, the proportionate increase of bearing-surface obtained by the footings is very slight, and there is generally great risk of the latter being broken off by the settlement of the body f A' ^ P ] ^,/ EEL ^IL 1 Fig. 1. Fig. 2. of the work, as in Fig. 2. It is therefore usual in these cases to give very little projection to the footing courses, and to bring up the work with a battering-face, or with a succession of very slight offsets, as in Fig. 3. A 'r* /^''//x' Hl"l/ -^ Fig. 3. Footings of undressed rubble built in common mortar should never be used for buildings of any importance, as the compression of the mortar is sure to cause movements in the superstructun*. Jf rubble must be used, it should be laid with cement mortar, £o that the whole will form a solid mass; in which case the size aiul shape of the stone are of little consequence. In general, footing stones should be at least two by three feet on the bottom, and eight inches thick. The Building Laws of the city of New York require that ttie footing under all foundation walls, and under all plejs, columns, posts, or pillars resting on the earth, shall be of stone or concrete. Under a foundation wall the footing must be at least twelve inches wider 1 aan the bottom width of the wall, and under pler% wrtnmnUi MASONRY WALLS. 151 its, or pillars, at least twelve inches wider on all sides than the ;tom width of the piers, columns, posts, or pillars, and not less m eighteen inches in thickness; and, if huilt of stone, the stones ill not he less than two by three feet, and at least eight inches ck. Vll base-stones shall be well bedded, and laid edge to edge; and, Lhe walls are built of isolated piers, then there must be inverted hes, at least twelve inches thick, turned under and between the rs, or two footing courses of large stone, at least ten inches ck in each course. The Boston Building Laws require that the bottom course for all indation walls resting upon the ground shall be at least twelve hes wider than the thickness given for the foundation walls. footings of Brick Foundations. — In building with ck, the special point to be attended to in the footing courses is 1 BRICK ^^.

The thickness of the walls required by the laws of the cities of Boston, New York, and Denver, Colo., are shown by the tables on pp. 155-157. The Boston Law also contains the following provisions, which form an excellent guide to architects in other localities : Section 38. Vaulted walls shall contain, exclusive of withes, the same amount of material v.a is required for solid walls, and the walls on cither side of the air-space shall be not less than eight inches thick, and shall be securely tied together with ties not more than two feet apart. Section? 39. In reckoning the thickness of walls, no allowance shall be made for ashlar, unless it is eight inches or more thick, in which case the excess over four inches shall be reckoned as part of the thickness of the wall. Ashlar shall be at least four inches thick, and properly held by metal clamps to the backing, or prop- erly bonded to the same. Section 40. External walls may be built in part of iron or steel, and when so built may be of less thickness than is above required for external walls, provided such walls meet the requirements of this act as to strength, and provided that all constructional parts are wholly protected from heat by brick or terra-cotta, or by plastering three-quarters of an inch thick, with iron furring and wiring. First and Second Class Buildings. Section 45. First and second class buildings hereafter bnilt shall have floor bearing supports not over thirty feet apart. These supports may be brick walls, trusses or columns and girders. Such brick walls may be four inches less in thickness than is required by this act for external and party walls of the same height, pro- vided they comply with the provisions of this act as to the strength of materials, but in no case less than twelve inches thick. When trusses are used, the walls upon which they rest shall be at least four inches thicker than is otherwise required by sections thirty-siz and thirty-seven, for every addition of twenty-five feet or part thereof to the length of the truss over thirty feet. Section 46. Second class buildings hereafter buHt shall be so divided by brick partition walls of (ho thickness prescribed for bearing partition walls and carried twelve inches above the roof, that no space inside any such building shall exceed in area tea thousand square feet, and no existing wall in any aeoond MASONRY WALLS. 165 building shall be removed so as to leave an area not so enclosed, of more than ten thousand square feet. Section 47. All walls of a first or second class building meet- ing at an angle shall be united every ten feet of their height, by- anchors made of at least two inches by half an inch wrought iron securely built in to the side or partition walls not less than thirty- six inches, and into the front and rear walls at least one-half the thickness of such walls. The New York Law also provides that the bearing walls of all buildings exceeding one hundred and five feet in depth without a cross wall, or piers or buttresses, shall be increased four inches in thickness for each additional one hundred and five feet in depth or part thereof; also, in case the walls of any building are less than twenty feet apart and less than forty feet in depth, or there are cross walls, or piers or buttresses, which serve to strengthen the walls, the thickness of the interior walls may be reduced in thickness at the judgment of the superintendent of buildings. In comparing the thickness of brick walls in the eastern and western portions of the country, it should be taken into consideration that the eastern brick arc much harder and stronger than those in the west, and that an eight-inch wall in Boston is probably as strong (to resist crushing) as a thirteen-inch wall in Denver, Colo.

ETC. CHAPTER IV. COMPOSITION AND RESOLUTION OF FORCZSa^ CENTRE OP GRAVITY. Let us imagine a round ball placed on a plane surface at A (Fig. 1), the surface being perfectly level, so that the ball will have no tendency to move until some force is imparted to it. If, now, we impart a force, P, to the ball in the direction indicated by the arrow, the ball will move off in the same direction. If, instead of imparting only one force, we impart two forces, P and Pi, to the ball, it will not move in the direction of either of the forces, but will move off in the direction of the resultant of these >B forces, or in the direction Ab in the figure. If the magnitude of the forces P and Pi is indicated by the length of the arrows, then, if we complete the parallelogram ABCDy the diagonal DA will represent the direction and magnitude of a force which will have the same effect on the ball as the two forces Pi and P. If, in addition to the two forces P^ and P, we now apply a third force, Pg, the ball will move in the direction of the resultant of all three forces, which can be obtained by com- pleting the parallelogram ADEF, formed by the resultant!)^ and the third force Pg. The diagonal R of this second parallelogram will be the resultant of all three of the forces, and the ball will move in the direction Ae, In the same way we could find the resultant of any number of forces. Again : suppose we have a ball suspended in the air, whose weight is indicated by the line W (Fig. 2). Now, we do not wish to suspend this ball by a vertical line above it, but by two inclined lines or Fig. 2. forces, P and Pi. What shall be the magnitude of these two forces to keep the ball suspended in just this position ? We have here just the opposite of our last case; and, instead of finding the diagonal of the resultant, we have the diagonal, which is the line IF, and wish to find the sides of the parallelogram. To do this, prolong P and Pi , and from B draw lines panUel to thfl^ COMPOSITION OF FORCES. 159 Fig. 3. to complete the parallelogram. Then will CA be the required magnitude for P, and CB for Pi. Thus we see how one force can be made to have the same effect as many, or manv can be made to do the work of one. Bearing the above in miad, we are now prepared to study the following propositions: — I. A force may be represented fry a straight line. In considering the action of forces, either in relation to struc- tures or by themselves, it is very convenient to represent the force gi'aphically, which can easily be done by a straight line having an arrow-head, as in Fig. 3. The length of the line, if drawn to a scale of pounds, shows the value of the force in pounds; the direc- tion of the line indicates the direction of the force; the arrow-head shows which way it acts; and the point A denotes the point of application. Thus we have the direction, magnitude, and point of application of the force represented, which is all that we need lo know. Parallelog^ram of Forces, — II. Jf two forces applied at one point, and actiny in the same plane, be represented by two straight lines inclined to each other, their resultant loill be equal to the diagonal qf tlie parallelogram formed on these lines. Thus, if the Hues AB and AC (Fig. 4) represent two forces act- ing on one point. A, and in the same plane, then, to obtain the force which would have the same effect as the two forces, we complete the parallelogram ABDC, and draw the diagonal AD» This line will then represent the result- ant of the two forces. When the two given forces are at right angles to each other, the resultant will, by geometry, be equal to the square root of the sum of the squares of the other two forces. The Triaui^le of Forces. — III. If three forces acting on a point be repre- sented in magnitude and direction by the aides of a triangle taken in order, they icill keep the point in equilibrium. Thus let P, Q, and R (Fig. 5) represent thi"ee forces acting on the point O. Now, if we can draw a triangle like that shown at the right of Fig. 5, whose sides shall be respectively {Murallel to the forces, and shall have thfl^ same relation to each other as do the forces, then the Fig. 4. 160 COMPOSITION OF FORCES. forces will keep the point in equilibrium. If such a triangle cannot be drawn, the forces will be unbalanced, and the point will not be in equilibrium. The Polygon of Forces. — IV. If any nwnher qf forcen actiny at a point can be represented in magnitude xmd direction by the aides of a polygon taken in order, they will be in equilibriwn. This proposition is only the preceding one carried to a greatei extent. Moments* — In considering the stability of structures and the strength of materials, we are often obligexl to take into considera- tion the moments of the forces acting on the structure or piece; and a knowledge of what a moment is, and the properties of moments, is essential to the praper understanding of these subjects. When we speak of the moment of a force, we must have in mind some fixed point about which the moment is taken. The moment of a force about any given point may be defined as the product of the force into the perpendicular distance from the point to the line of action of the force; or, in other words, the moment of a force is the product of the force by the arm with lohich it acVi. Thus if we have a force F (Fig. G), and wish to determine its moment about a point P, we determine the perpen- dicular distance Pa, between the point and the line of action of the force, and multiply it by the force in pounds. For example, if the force F were equal to a weight of 500 pounds, and the distance Pa were 2 inches, then the moment of the force about the point P would be 1000 inch-pounds. The following important propositions relating to forces and moments should be borne in mind in calculating the strength or stability of structures. V. — If any number of parallel forces act on a 1>ody, that the body shall be in eqvilihrimn, the nmn P^ of the forces acting in one direction Fig. 6 P' Pi 4 4 Fig.7 Pi,Pj, and P3. must equal the sum of the forces actr D lug in the opposite direction. Thus if we have tlie parallel forces P\ P*, P®, and P*, acting on the rod AB (Fig. 7), in the opposite direction to the forces Pi, P„ P„ then, if the rod is in equilibrium, the sum of the forces P' , P*, P«, and P», must equal the sum of the loroet COMPOSITION OF FORCES. 161 Fa 1 Fs 4^ 1^ .. . . 1 ' *■ -2 — ^ ^ A ^ S ^ w .n ^. ^ « _J O^ \ Fig. 8 Fi . i. VI. If any nwnber of parallel forces act on a body in opposite directions, then, for the body to he in equilibrium, the sum of the moments tending to turn the body in one direction must equal the sum of the moments tending to turn the body in the opposite direction about any given point. Thus let Fig. 8 represent three parallel forces acting on a rod AB. Then, for the rod to be in equilibrium, the sum of the forces Ft and F3 must be equal to Ft. Also, if we take the end of the rod, A, for our axis, then must the moment of Fj be equal to the siun of the moments of F2 and Fi about that point, because the moment of Fi tends to turn the rod down to the right, and the moments of F^ and F^ tend to turn the rod up to the left, and there should be no more tendency to turn the rod one way than the other. For example, let the forces F^, F^, each be represented by 5, and let the distance ^a be represented by 2, and the distance Ac by 4. The force F, must equal the sum of the forces F3 and Ff, or 10; and its moment must equal the sum of the moments of F^ and Fs. If we take the moments around A, then the moment of F3 = 5 X 2 = 10, and of Fg = 5 X 4 = 20. Their simi equals 30: hence the moment of F| nmst be 30. Divid- ing the moment 30 by the force 10, we have for the arm 3; or the force Fi must act at a distance 3 from A to keep the rod in equilibrium. If we took our moments around b, then the force Fi would have no moment, not having any arm, and so the moment of F2 about 5 must equal the moment of F3 about the same point; or, as in this case the forces are equal, they must both be applied at the same distance from b, showing that b must be halfway between a and c, as was proved before. Tlie Principle of the Lever.— Tills principle is based upon the two pre- ceding prox>osltions, and Is of great im- portance and convenience. VII. Xf three parallel forces acting in one place balance each other, then each ^ force must Ije proportionaX to tJie distance jq between the other two. Thus, if we have a rod AB (Figs. 9a, Ob, and 9c), with three forces, P|, P^, F9, acting QU it» that the rod shall be balanced, we must have the 15 12 Fig. 9 a B Pi 162 COMPOSITION OF FORCES. following relation between the forces and their points of applica- tion; viz., — P, P2 P, or vn ' An ' AC Pi :P^ :Ps ::BC :AB : AC, This is the case of the common lever, anil gives the means of detennining how much a given lever will raise. p Pig.9 b B h Ftg.9o The proportion is also true for any arrangement of the forces (as shown in Figs, a, b, and c), provided, of course, the forces are lettered in the order sho^^Ti in the figures. Example. — Let the distance AC be 6 inches, and the distance CB be 12 inches. If a weight of 500 pounds is applied at the point B, how much will it raise at the other end, and what support will be required at C (Fig. 9b)? Ans, Applying the rule just given, we have the proportion: ^ P:, : P, :: AC : CB, or 500 : (P,) :: 6 : 12. Hence P, = 1000 poiuids; or 500 pounds applied at B will lift 1000 suspended at A. The supporting force at C must, by proposition v., be equal to the sum of the forces Pi and Pj, or 1500 ponnds in this case. Centre of Gravity. — The lines of action of the force of gravity converge towards the centre of the earth; but the distance of the centre of the earth from the bodies which we have occasion to consider, compared with the size of those bodies, is so great, that we may consider the lines of action of the forces as parallel. The number of tin? forces of gravity acting upon a body may be consicU ered as equal to the numbei' of particles composing the body. The centre of (jratlty of a body may be defined *a8 the point through which the resultant of the parallel forces of graTlty, actiiif upon the body, passes in eveiy position of the body. CENTRES OF GRAVITY. 163 If a iKxly be supported at its centre of gravity, and be turned about tliat point, it will remain in equilibrium in all positions. The resultant of the parallel forces of gravity acting upon a body is obviously equal to the weight of the body, and if an equal force be applied, acting in a line passing through the centre of gravity of the body, the body will be in equilibrium. Examples of Centres of Gravity. — Centre of Gravity of Lliies. StraiyfU Lines. — By a line is here meant a material line whose transverse section is veiy small, such as a very fine wire. The centre of gravity of a uniform straight line is at its middle point. This proposition is too evident to require demonstration. The centre of gravity of the perimeter of a triangle is at the centre of the circle inscribed in the lines joining the centres of the sides of the given triangle. Thus, let ABC (Fig. 10) be the given triangle. To find the centre of gravity of its perimeter, find the middle points, D, E, and F, and connect them by straight lines. The centre of the circle inscribed in the triangle formed by these lines will g- be the centre of gravity sought. Symmetrical Lines, — The centre of gravity of lines which are sjrmmetrical with reference to a point will be at that point. Thus the centre of gravity of the circumference of a circle or an ellipse is at the geometrical centre of those figures. The centre of gravity of the perimeter of an equilateral triangle, or of a regular polygon, is at the centre of the inscribed circle. The centre of gravity of the perimeter of a square, rectangle, or parallelogram, is at the intersection of the diagonals of those figures. Centre of Gravity of Surfaces, Definition. — A surface here means a very thin plate or shell. Symmetrical Surfaces, — If a surface can be divided into two symmetrical halves by a line, the centre of gravity will be on that line: if it can be divided by two lines, the centre of gravity will be at their intersection. The centre of gravity of the surface of a circle or an ellipse is at the geometrical centre of the figm-e ; of an equilateral triangle or a regular polygon, it is at the centre of the inscribed circle; of a parallelogram, at the intersection of the diagonals ; of the surface of a sphere, or an ellipsoid of revolution, at the geometrical centre of the body; of the convex surface of a right cylinder at the middle point of the axis of the cylinder. Irregular Figures, — 4^ny figure may be divided into rectangles 164 CENTRES OF GRAVITY. and triangles, and, the centre of gravity of each being found, the centre of gravity of the whole may be determined by treating the centres of gravity of the separate parts as particles whose weights are proportional to the areas of the parts they represent. Triangle, — To find the centre of gravity of a triangle, draw a line from each of two angles to the middle of the side opposite: the intersection of the two lines will give the centre of gravity. QuadrilateraL — To find the centre of gravity of any quadrilat- eral, draw diagonals, and, from the end of each farthest from their intersection, lay ofif, toward the intersection, its shorter segment: the two points thus formed with the point of intersection will form a triangle whose centre of gravity is that of the quadrilatenl. Thus, let Fig. 11 be a quadrilateral whose centre of gravity is sought. Draw the diagonals AD and BC, and from A lay ofif AF= ED, and from B lay off BH = EC. From E draw , P a line to the middle of FH, and from Fa line to the middle of EH. The point of intersection of these two lines is the centre of gravity of the quadri- lateral. This is a method commonly used for finding the centre of gravity of the voussoirs of an arch.

Example. — As an example under the above rule and tables, let us find the common centre of gravity of the semicircle and triangle shown in Fig, 12. We must first find the centres of gravity of the two parts. The centre of gravity of the semicircle is 0.425 R Fig. 12 from A, or 2.975. The centre of gravity of the triangle is i of 8", or 2.666^' from A ; and hence the distance between the centre of gravity is 2.975" + 2.666", or 5.641". 3|X49 The area of the semicircle is approximately — 5 — > ^^^*^ square inches. The area of the triangle is 7 X 8, or 56 square inches. The sum of the areas is 133 square inches.

Ws Fig. 14 RETAINING WALLS. 1^'^ CHAPTER V. RETAINING VSTALLS. A Retaining^ Wall is a wall for sustaining a pressure of earth, sand, or other filling or backing deposited behind it after it is built, in distinction to a brest or face wall, which is a similar structure for preventing the fall of earth which is in its undis- turbed natural position, but in which a vertical or inclined face has been excavated. Fig. 1 gives an illustration of the two kinds of wall. Retaining* Walls. — A great deal has been written upon the theory of retaining walls, and many theories have been given for computing the thrust which a bank of earth exerts against a re- taining wall, and for determining the form of wall which affords the greatest resistance with the least amount of material. There are so many conditions, however, upon which the thrust exerted by the backing depends, — such as the cohesion of the earth, the dryness of the material, the mode of backing up tlic wall, etc., — that in practice it is impossible to determine tli(» exact thrust which will be exerted against a wall of a given heiji:ht. It is therefore necessary, in designing retaining walls, to be guided by experience rather than by theory. As the theory of retaining walls is so vague and unsatisfactory, wc shall not offer any in this article, but rather give such rules and cautions as have been estab- lished by practice and experience. In designing a retaining wall there are two things to be consid- ered, — the backing and the wall. The tendency <^ tAe hacking to slip is very much less when it is ^^^ BETAINING WALLS. in a dry state tlian when it is filled with wnter, and hence eve pi'M^aution shouliJ be taken to secure good drainage. Besides bi face drainage, tiiere should be openings left iii tlie waJI for Ike | water which may accumulate l:>e1iind it to escape aud run off. The manner in which the material is HUed agaiust the wftll also affects the stability of the baclcings. ff the ground be made irregu- lar, as in Fig. 1 , and the earth weil rammed in layers inclined jVom tlie uatl, tliit pressure will be very trifling, provided that attention be paid to drainage. If, on the other hand, the earth tie tipped, in ttie usual manner, in layers sloping toteardu the wall, the full pi urc of the earth will be exerted against II, and It must be made of correaponding strength.

The Wall.— lietainingWAlls are generally built with a batter- ing (sloping! face, as this Is the strongest wall tor a given amonnt of material ; and, if the courses are inclined towards the back.

Fig-I FIg.a The importance of making tlie resistance independent of tiw ailhesion of the mortar Is obviously very great; as It WonU other- wise be necessary to delay backing up a n^l until tba iDortar WH 'horoughly set, which might require several uonllni RETAINING WALLS. it™ e Back of tlie Wall shonld bo left Roagli.— In ivork It would be well to let every third or fourth course ^t an inch or two. This increases the frietion of the earth 9t the back, and thus causes tlie resultant of the forces acting d the wall to become nion? nearly vertical, and to fall farther n the base, giving increased stability. Jt also conduces to ;tli not to make each course of uniform lielglit throughout the less of the wall, but to have some of the stones, especially near ick, sufiiciently high to reach up through two or liiree courses, is means the wliole masonry becomes more effectually inter- 1 or bonded tc^etlier as one mass, and less liable to bulge. ere deep freezing occurs, the back of the wall should be sloped rds for threeor four feet belowitstop, aa at OC (Fig. 2), which 1 be quite smooth, so aa to lessen the hold of the frost, and at displacement. i. 3, 4, 5, and 6 show the relative sectional areas of walls of snt shapes that would be required to resist the pressure of a of earth twelve feet high ("Art of Building," E.

[t should be borne in mind that a trifling force skilfully applied to onbroken ground will keep in its place a mass of material, which, if once allowed to move, would crush a heavy wall ; and therefore great care should be taken not to expose the newly opened ground to the influence of air and wet for a moment longer than is requisite for sound work, and to avoid leaving the smallest space for motion between the back of the wall and the ground. The strength of a brest wall nuist be projiortionately increase<1 when the strata to be supported inclines towards the wall: where they incline from it, the wall need be little more than a thin facing to protect the ground from disintegration. The preservation of the natural drainage is one of the most im- portant points to be attended to in the erection of brest walls, as upon this their stability in a groat measure depends. Xo rule can be given for the best manner of doing this: it must be a matter for attentive consideration in each particular case. STBEKGTH OF MASOKBY. 171 CHAPTER VI. STRBNGTH OF MASONRY. By the term "strength of masonry " we mean its resistance to a crushing-force, as that is the only force to which masonry should bo subjected. The strength of the different stones and materials used in masonry, as determined by experiment, is given in the following table. (For Architectural Terra-Cotta, see page 186a.)

The stones in this table are supposed to be on bed, and the height » to be not more than four times the least side. Of the strength of rubble masonry, Professor Rankine states that "the resistance of fjood coursed rubble masonry to crushing is about four-tenths of that of single blocks of the stone it is built with. The resistance of common rubble to crushing is not much greater than that of the mortar which it contains." Stones generally commence to crack or split under about one-half of their crushing-load. Crushing-Height of Brick and Stone. — If we assume the weight of brickwork to be 112 pounds per cubic foot, and that it would crush under 450 pounds per square inch, then a vertical unifonn column 580 feet high would crush at its base under its own weight. Average sandstones at 145 pounds per cubic foot would require a column 5950 feet high to crush it; and average granite at 165 pounds per cubic foot would require a column 10,470 feet high. The Merchants' shot-tower at Baltimore is 246 feet high, and its base sustams a pressure of six tons and a half (of 2240 pounds) per square foot. The base of the granite pier of Saltash Bridge (by Biiinel) of solid masonry to the height of 96 feet, and supporting the ends of two iron spans of 455 feet each, sustains nino tons and a half per squai-e f oot . The highest pier of Rocquef avonr stone aqueduct, Marseilles, is 305 feet, and sustains a pressure at the base of thirteen tons and a half jyar square foot. Worldng-Strengtli of Masonry.— The worlring-streiigth of masonry is generally taken at from one-sixth to one-tenth of the crushing-load for piei's, colunms, etc., and in the case of arches a factor of safety of twenty is often recommended for computing tbe resistance of the voiissoirs to crushing. Mr. Trautwine states that it cannot be considered safe to expose even first-class pressed brickwork in cement to more tlian thirteen or sixteen tons' pressure per square foot, or good hand-moulded brick to more than two-tliirds as nmch. {Seepage 181.) Sheet lead is sometinH^s plac(ul at the joints of stone columns with a view to equalize the pressure, and thus increase the strength of the cohnun. Exi)oriments, however, seem to show that the effect is directly the reverse, and that the column is materiaHy weakened thereby. ' Piers. — Masonry thai is so heavily loaded tliat it Is necessary to proporlion it in regard to its strength to resist crushing, is, as a general rule, in the form of piers, either of brick or Btoue. As 1 Trautwine's Pocket-book, p. 176. STRENGTH OF MASONRY. 1*^3 these pien are often in places where it is desirable tliat they should occupy as little space as possible, they are oflen loaded to the full limit of safety. The material generally used for building piers is brick: block or cut stone is sometimes used, for the sake of appearance; but rubble- work should never be used for piers which are to sustain posts, pillara, or columns. Brick piers more than six feet in height should never bo less than twelve inches square, and should have properly proportioned footing courses of stone not less than a foot thick. The brick in piers should be hard and well burned, and should be laid in cement, or cement mortar at least, and be well wet before being laid, as the strength of a pier depends very much upon the mortar or cement with which it is laid: those piei*s which have to sustain very heavy loads should be built up with the best of the Rosendale cements. The size of the pier should be determined by calculating the greatest lead which it may ever have to sustain, and dividing the load by the safe resistance of one square inch or foot of that kind of masonry to crushing. Example. — In a large storehouse the floors are supported by a girder running lengthwise through the centre of the building. The girders are supported every twelve feet by columns, and the lowest row of columns is supported on brick piers in the basement. The load which may possibly come upon one pier is found to be 65,000 pounds. What should be the size of the pier ? ^iM. The masonry being of good quality, and laid in cement mortar, we will a^ume 12 tons per square foot, or 166 lbs. per square inch (see p. 181), for the safe working load. Dividing 65,000 lbs. by 166, we have 891 square inches for the size of the pier. This would require a pier 20 x 20 inches. It is the custom with many architects to specify bond stones in brick piers (the full size of the section of the pier) every three or four feet in the height of the pier. These bond stones are gener- ally alx)ut foiu" inches thick. The object in using them is to distribute the pressure on the pier equally through the whole mass. Many first-class builders, however, consider that the piers are stronger without the bond stone; and it is the opinion of the writer that a pier will be just as strong if they are not used. Section 3 of the Building Laws of the city of New York requires that every isolated pier less tlian ten superficial feet at the base, and all piers supporting a wall built of rubble-stone or brick, or under any iron beam or arch-girder, or arch on which a wall rests, or lintel supporting a wall, shall, at intervals of not less than thirty inches in height, have built into it a bond stone not less than 174 STRENGTH OF MASONRY. four inches thick, of a diameter each way equal to the diametei of the pier, except that in piers on the street front, above the curb, the bond stone may be four inches less than the pier in diameter. Piers which support colmnns, posts, or pillars, shonld have the top covered by a plate of stone or iron, to distribute the pressure over the whole cross-section of the pier. In Boston, it is required that '*all piera shall be built of good, hard, well-burned brick, and laid in clear cement, and all bricks used in piers shall be of the hardest quality, and be well wet when laid. '* Isolated brick piers under all lintels, girders, iron or other col- umns, shall have a cap-iron at least two inches thick, or a granite cap-stone at least twelve inches thick, the full size of the pier. ^* Piers or columns supporting walls of masonry shall have for a footing course a broad leveller, or levellers, of block stone not less than sixteen inches thick, and with a bearing surface equal in area to the square of the width of the footing course pluB one foot required for a wall of the same thickness and extent as that borne by the pier or colunm." For the Strength of Manonry WallSj see Chap. UL The following tables give the results of some tests on bclckf brick piers, and stoue, made under the direction of the author, in behalf of the Massachusetts Charitable Mechanics Ajbso- ciation. The specimens were tested in the government testingi-macliliie at Watertown, Mass., and great care was exercised to make tlie te~sts as perfect as possible. As the parallel plates between which the brick and stone were crushed are fixed in one position, it is necessary that the specimen tested should have perfectly parallel faces. The bricks which were tested were rubbed on a reyolTing bed until the top and bottom faces were perfectly true and parallel. The preparation of the bricks in this way required a great deal of time and expense; and it was so difficult to prepare some of the hanler bi'ick, that they had to be broken, and only one-half if :he brick prepared at a time.

They were a very soft brick. The Cambridge Brick were the common brick, such as is made around Boston. They are about the same as the Eastern Brick. The Boston Terra-Cotta Company^ a Brick were manufactured of a rather fine clay, and were such as are often used for face brick. The New-England Pressed Brick were hydraulic pressed brick, and were almost as hard as iron. From tests made on the same machine by the United States Gov- ernment in 1884, the average strength of three (M. W. Sands) Cam- bridge, Mass., face brick was 13,925 pounds, and of his common brick, 18,337 pounds per square inch, one brick developing the enor- mous strength of 22,351 pounds per square inch. This was a very bard-burnt brick. Three brick of the Bay State (Mass.) manufacture showed an average strength of 11,400 pounds per square inch. The New England brick are among the hardest and strongest brick in the oonntry, those in many parts of the West not having one-fourth of the strength given above, so that in heavy buildings, 176 STRENGTH OF MASONRY. where the strength of the brick to be used is not known by actaal tests, it is advisable to have the brick tested. Prof. Ira 0. Baker, of the University of Illinois, reported some tests on Illinois brick, made on the 100,000 pounds testing machine at the university, in 1888-89, which gives the crushing strength of soft brick at <574 pounds per square inch, average of three face brick, 3,070 pounds ; and of four paving brick, 9,775 pounds. In nearly all makes of brick it will be found that the face brick are not as strong as the common brick. Tests of the Streni^li of Brick Piers laid with Various Mortars/ — These tests were made for the purpose of testing the strength of brick piers laid up with different cement mortars, as compared with those laid up with ordinary mortar. The brick used in the piers were procured at M W. Sands's brick- yard, Cambridge, Mass., and were good ordinary brick. They were from the same lot as the samples of common brick tested as described. The piers were 8" by 12", and nine coui-ses, or about 224'' high, excepting the first, which was but eight courses high. They were built Nov. 29, 1881, in one of the storehouses at the United-States Arsenal in Watertown, Mass. In order to have the two ends of the piers perfectly parallel surfaces, a coat of about half an inch thick of pure I'ortland cement was put on the top of each pier, and the foot was grouted in the same cement. March 8, 1882, three months and five days later, the tops of the piers were dressed to plane surfaces at right angles to the sides of the piers. On attempting to dress the lower ends of the piers, the cement grout peeled off, and it was necessary to remove it entirely, and put on a layer of cement similar to that on the top of the piers. This was allowed to harden for one month and sixteen days, when the piers were tested. At that time the piers were four months and twenty-six days old. As the piers were built in cold weather, the bricks were not wet. The piers were built by a skilled brick-layer, and the mortars were mixed under his superintendence. ITie tests were made with the government testing-machine at the Arsenal. The following table is arranged so as to sbow the resalfc of these tests, and to afford a ready means of comparison of the strength of brickwork with different mortars. The piers generally failed by cracking longitudinally, and some of the brick were crushed. The 1 The report of these tests was first pablished in the AmBrican Aidiileel^ June 8, 1882.

Three kinds of brick were reprasent«d in the conatruction of the piers, and mortars of different composition — ranging in strength from lime mortar to neat Portland cement. The piers ranged in cross-section dimensions from H' x 8" to 16" x IS", and in height from 16" to 10 '. The piers were tested at the age of from 18 to 24 months The following table gives the reaiUts obtained, and memoranda regarding the size and character of the piers. « SSS223SSS2 ■3 11 Jiiiiiiiiii ,IIWJI|I.I.I. 1 lii iiilll^ 5 J 1 1 nrl r;::il • il i I I I 180 STRENGTH OF MASONRY. Tests of Mortar Cubes. — The following tests of 6" oabesof mortar were made by the United States Gk)veniment at Watertown, Mass., in the year 1884. Ttie mortar cubes were allowed to season in the open air, a period of fourteen and a half months, whpn they were tested. The age of tlic plaster cube was four months. It should be noticed that, while the cube? of Rosendalc cement and Hme-mortar showed a greater strength than when sand alone was mixed with the cement, with the cubes of Portland cement and lim^-mortar the reverse was the case, differing from the result obtained by the author.

The following table is ari-anged to show the sectional area and strength of each specimen, and the average for each variety of ^tone. The cracking-strength, so to speak, of the stone, is of con- sideitible unportance, for, after a stone has commenced to crack, its permanent strength is probably reached ; for, if the load which caused it to crack were allowed to remain on the stone, it would probably in time crush the stone. In testing the blocks, however, some in- equality in the faces of the block might cause one corner to ciack when the stone itself had not commenced to weaken. STKENGTH OF MASONRY. Cell. Q. A.

STRENGTH OF MASONRY. 186a Architectural Terra- Cotta— Weight and Strength. The lightness of terra-cotta, combined with its enormous resist- ing strength, and taken in connection also with its durability and absolute indestructibility by fire, water, frost, etc., renders it specially desirable for use in the construction of all large edifices. Terra-cotta for building purposes, whether plain or ornamental, is generally made of hollow blocks formed with webs inside, so as to give extra strength and keep the work true while drying. This is necessitated because good, well-burned terra-cotta cannot safely be made of more than about 1^ inches in thickness, whereas, when required to bond with brick-work, it must be at least four inches thick. When extra strength is needed, these hollow spaces are filled with concrete or brick- work, which greatly increases the crushing strength of terra-cotta, although alone it is able to bear a very heavy weight. *• A i'Olid block of terra-cotta of one foot cube has borne a crushing strain of 500 tons and over." Some exhaustive experiments, made by the Royal Institute of British Architects, give the following results as the crushing strength of terra-cotta blocks : Crushing wt. per en. ft. 1.

The weight of tem-ootta in solid blocks is 122 pounds. When 186* STBENGTH OP MASONRY. made in hollow blocks 1^ inches thick, the weight varies from 6f to 85 pounds per cubic foot, the smaller pieces weighing the most. For pieces 12" x 18" or larger on the face, 70 pounds per cubic fool will probably be a fair average. For the exterior facing of fire-proof buildings, terra-cotta is non considered as the most suitable material available. STABILITY OF PIERS ANP BUTTBESSES. 187 CHAPTER VIT. 8TABII1ITT OF PIERS AND BUTTRESSBS. A PI Kit or buttress may be cousMered stable when the forces acting upon it <lo not cause it to rotate or "tip over," or any course of stones or brick to slide on its bed. When a pier has to sustain only a vertical load, it is evident that the pier must be stable, although it may not liave sufficient strength. It is only when the pier receives a thrust such as tliat from a rafter or an arch, that its stability must be considered. In order to resist rotation, we must have the condition that the moment of the tluiist of the pier about any point in the outside of the pier shall not exceed the moment of the weight of the pier about the same point. To illustrate, let us take the pier shown in Fig. 1. Let us suppose that this pier receives the foot of a rafter, which exerts a thrust T in the direction AB» The tendency of this thrust will be to cause the pier to rotate about the outer edge b 1 ; and the moment of the thrust about this point will be T X a lb I, a lb i being the arm. Now, that the pier shall be just in equilibrium, the moment of the weight of the pier about the same edge must just equal T X a, 6,. The weight of the pier will, of course, act through the centre of gravity of the pier (which in this case is at the centre), and in a vertical direction; and its arm will be 6|<r, or one-half the thickness of the pier. Ilcncc, to liave equilibrium, we must have the equation, T X ttibi = W X bic. Ihit under this condition the least additional thrust, or the crush- ing off of the outer edge, would cause the pier to i-otate: hence, to have the pier in safe equilibrium, we must use some factor of safety. This is generally done by making the moment of the weight c(iual to that of the thiiist when referred to a point in the bottom of the pier, a certain distance in from the outer tnlge. This distance for piers or buttresses should not be less than one- fourtb of tbe thlcknesa of the pier. 18R STABILITY OF PIERS AND BUITBESSEI^. Rcpresontiiig this point in the figui*e by h, we have the neceasuj e(i nation for the safe stability of the pier, TX ab= W X it, t denoting the width of the pier. We cannot from this e<iuation detenuine the dimensions of a pier to resist a given thmst; becanse we have the distance ah, /, and W, all unknown quantities. Hence, we must first guess at i\w size of the pier, then find the length of the line a6, and sec if the moment of the pier is equal to that of the thrust. If it is not, we must guess again. Graphic Method of determining: the Stability of a Pier or Buttress. — When it is desii-ed to determine if a givon pier or buttress is capable of resisting a given thrust, the probleiu can easily be solved graphically in the following manner. TiCt ABCD (Fig. 2) represent a pier which sustains a given thnist T at B. To detennine whether the pier will safely sustain tliis thrust, we pi-oceed as follows. Draw the indefinite line liX in the direction of the thnisL Through the centre of gravity of the pier (which in this case Is at the centre of the pier) (h-aw a vortical line until it intersects tint line of the thrust at c. As a force may be considered to act any- where in its line of direction, we may consider the tlinut and Ih* weiixht to act at the point c: and the resultant of these two forces can l)e obtained by laying off the ihnist T from e on eX, and Ui« wcijrlit of the pier IT, from c on the line cY, lx)th to the same scale (pounds to the inch), completing the parallelogram, and dimw- ing the diagonal, if this diagonal prolonged cats the base of the pier at less than one-fourth of the width of the liase from the outer eilge, the pier will l>e unstable, and its dhneusious must beduuigiad. The stability of a pie7' may be increased by adding 10 U* ira%|l STABILITY OF PIERS AND BUTTRESSES. 186 (by placing some heavy mnterial on top), or by Increasing Its width at the base, by means of " set-offs," as in Fig. 3. Figs. 3 (A and B| show the method of determinit^ the stability ^f a buttress with offsets. The flrst step Is to find the vertical line paaslng throngli the centre of gravity of tlie whole pier. This is best done by dividing the bmtresa up into quadrilaterals, as ABCD, DEFG, and GIIIK (Fig. 3A), finding the centre of gruvity of each quadrilateral by the method of diagonals, anil then measuring the perpendicular distances A'g, A'„ X^, from the diSei^ent centres of gravity to the line KI. Multiply the area of each qitadrilateral by the distance of its centre of gravity from the line KT, and add together the areas and the products. Divide the sum of the latter by the sum of the former, and the result will be the distance of the centre of gravity of the whole buttress from KI. This distance we denote by X^. Example I. — Let the buttress shown in Fig. 3A have Ilia dimensions given l)etween llie cross-marks. Then the arv& of the quadrilaterals and the distances from their centres of gravity to KI would be as follows; 1st area = 35 sq. ft X, = (V.ft-> 1st area x X, - M.2.5 2d area = 23 sq. ft.

After this line is found, the metho<l of dctemiining the stability of the pier is the same as that given for the pier in Fig. 2. Fig. 3B also illustrates the method. If tlie buttress is more than one foot thick (at right angles to the piano of the paper), the cubic contents of the buttress must be obtained to find the weight. It is easier. howeviT, to divide tlie real thrust by the thickness of the buttress, which i^ivi's the thrust per foot of buttress. J^ine of lleniiitsince, — Dcjinition, The line of resistance or of i>nvs.sures, of a pier or buttress, is a line drawn througli the centre of pressure of each joint. The centre of prenftitre of any joint is the point where the resultant of the forces acting on that portion of the pier above the joint cuts it. The line of pressures, or of resistance, when drawn in a pier, shows liow near the greatest stress on any joint comes to the edges of tliat joint. It can be drawn by tlie following method. Let AIU'I) (Fig. 4) be a pier whose line of I'esistance we wish to draw. First divide the pier in height, into portions two or three feet high, by drawing horizontal lines. It is more convenient to make the i)ortions all of the same size.

After this line is found, the method of determining the stability the pier is tlie same as that given for the pier in Fig. 2. Fig. i also illustrates the method. If the buttress is more than one fc thick (at right angles to the plane of the paper), the cubic contei of the buttress must be obtained to find the weight. It is easii however, to divide the real thrust by the thickness of the buttre: which gives the thrust per foot of buttress. J^iiie of Kesistaiice. — Definition, The line of resistan or of pressures, of a pier or buttress, is a line drawn through t centre of pressure of each joint. The centre of pressure of any joint is the point where t resultant of the forces actmg on that portio.n of the pier abo the joint cuts it. The line of pressures, or of resistance, when drawn in a pi< shows how near the greatest stress on any joint comes to the edg of that joint. It can be drawn by the following method. Let ABCB (Fig. 4) be a pier whose line of resistance we wish to draw. First divide the pier in height, into portions two or three feet high, by drawing horizontal lines. It is more convenient to make the portions all of the same size. Prolong the line of the thnist, and draw a vertical line through the centre of gravity of the pier, intersecting the line of thrust at the point a. From a lay off to a scale the thrust T and the weights of the different portions of the pier, coiuniencing with the weight of the upper portion. Thus, to i represents the weight of the portion above the lirst joint; i02 represents the weight of the second portion; and so on. The sum of the to's will equal the whole weight of the pier. Having proceeded thus far, complete a parallelogram, with T u w I for its two sides. Draw the diagonal, and prolong it. Whfi it cuts the first joint will be a point in the line of resistanc Draw another parallelogram, with T and Wi+Wt for iU two aldf Draw the diagonal intersecting the second Joint at % Fit.4. STABILITY OF PIERS AND BUTTRESSES. 191 this way, when the last diagonal will intersect the base in 4. Join the points 1, 2, 3, and 4, and the resulting line will be the line of resistance. We have taken the simplest case as an example; but the same principle is true for any case. Should the line of resistance of a pier at any point approach the outside edge of the joint 'neai-er than one-quarter the width of the joint, the pier should be considered unsafe. As an example embracing all the principles given above, we will take the following case. Example II. — Let Fig. 5 represent the section of a side wall of a church, with a buttress against it. Opposite the buttress, on the inside of the. wall, is a hammer-beam truss, which we will sup- pose exerts an outward thrust on the walls of the church amount- ing to about 9600 pounds. We will further consider that the resultant of the thrust acts at P, and at an angle of 60° with a horizontal. The dimensions of the wall and buttress are given in Fig. 5 A, and the buttress is two feet thick. Question. — Is the buttress sufficient to enable the wall to withstand the thrust of the truss ? The first point to decide is if the line of resistance cuts the joint CD at a safe distance in from C To ascertain this, we must find the centre of gravity of the wall and buttress above the joint CD. We can find this easiest by the method of moments around KM (Fig. 5A), as already explained. The distance Xi is, of course, half the thickness of the wall, or one foot. We next find the centre of gravity of the portion CEFG (Fig. 5A), by the method of diagonals, and, scaling the distance X«, we find it to be 2.95 feet. The area of CEFG = ^g = 10 square feet; and of GIKL = Ax = 26 square feet. Then we have, X,-\ ^, =26 ^, X X, = 26 Xt = 2.95 ^2 = 10 A^X Xi- 29.5 36 36 ) 55.5 Xo = 1.5 Or the centre of gravity is at a distance 1.5 foot from the line ED (Fig. 5). Then on Fig. 5 measure the distance Xn = 1.5 foot, and through the point a dmw a vertical line intersecting the line of the thrust prolongisd at O. Now, if the thrust is 9600 pounds for a buttress two feet thick, it would be half that, or 4800 pounds, lor a buttrass one loot thick.

Di*aw the line O'e intersecting the base at c. Tliis is the point where the line of resistance cuts the base; and, as it is at a safe distance in from A, the buttress has sufficient stability. If there were more offsets, we sliould i^roceed in the same way, finding where the line of resistance cuts the joint at the top of each offset. The reason for doing thisis because the line of resist- ance might cut the base at a safe distance from the outer edge, while higher up it might come outside of the buttress, so that the buttiess would be unstable. The method given iu these examples is applicable to piei's of any sliape or material. Should the line of resistance make an angle less tliau 30^ with any joiut, it might cause the stones above Uie joint to slide on their bed. This can be prevented either by dowelliug, or by incliu- lug the joint. It is very seldom in architectural coustruction that such a case would occur, however. 194 THE STABILITY OF ARCHES. CHAPrER vin. THE STABILITT OF ARCHB8. The arch is an arrangeimmt for spanning large openings by means of small blocks of stone, or other material, arranged in a par- ticular way. As a rule, the arch answers the same purpose as tbe beam, but it is widely different in its action and in tbe effect that it has upon tlie appearance of an edifice. A beam exerts merely a vertical force upon its supports, i>ut the arch exerts both a vertical load and an outward thrust. It is this thrust which requires that tho arch sliould be used with caution wliere the abutments are not abundantly large. Before taking up the principles of the • arch, we will define the many terms relating to It. The distance ec (Fig. 1) is called the ftpan of the arch; ai, its rise; b, its crown; its lower boundary Hue, eac, its 9(^t or intrados ; the outer boundary line, pi^l its back or extrados. The terms "soffit" and "back'' are also applied to the entire lower and upper curved surfaces of the whole arch. The ends of the arch, or the sides which are seen, are called its faces. The blocks of which the arch itself is composed are called voussoh'-s : the centre one, K, is called the keystone ; and the lowest ones, .S.S, the tfprintfei'H, In nf*/- weiital arches, or those whose intrados is not a complete semicircle, the springers generally rest upon two stones, as RR, which luive their upper surface cut to receive them: these stones are called skewhdcks. The line connecting the lower edges of the springers is called the sprinyhKj-Une ; the sides of the arcli are called the haunches ; and the load in the triangular space, between the haunches and a horizontal line drawn from the crown, is called the spandrel. The blocks of masonry, or other material, which support two sucrcssive arches, are called piers : the extreme blocks, which, in the Cease of stone bridges, generally support on one side emlMuak- ments of earth, arc calle<l ((hutments. A pier strong enough to withstand the thrust of ^ther areh, should the other fall down, is sometimes called an nhnUneni pier. Resides their own weight, arches usually support a pemnneiit kiad or surcharge of masonry or of earth. In using arches in architectural constructions! thit flom of fki THE STABILITY OF ARCHES. 195 arch is generally governed by the style of the edifice, or by a limited amount of space. The semicircular and segmental forms of arches are the best as regards stability, and ai-e the simplest to construct. Klliptical and three-centred arches are not as strong as circular arches, and should only be used where they can be given all the strength desirable. The strenytJi of an arch depends very much upon the care with which it is built and the quality of the work. In stone arches, special care should be taken to cut and lay the beds of the stones accurately, and to make the bed-joints thin and close, in order that the arch may be strained as little as possible in settling. To insure this, arches are sometimes built dry, grout or liquid mortar being aftei*wards nm into the joints; but the advantage of this method is doubtful. !Brick Arches may be built either of wedge-shaped bricks, moulded or rubbed so as to fit to the radius of the soffit, or of bricks of common shape. The former method is imdoubtedly the l>est, as it enables the bricks to be thoroughly bonded, as in a wall ; but, as it involves considerable expense to make the bricks of the proper shape, this method is very seldom employed. Where bricks of the ordinary shape are used, they are accommodated to the curved figiu-e of the arch by making the bed-joints thinner towards the intrados than towards the extrados; or, if the curvature is sharp, by driving thin pieces of slate into the outer edges of those joints; and different methods are followed for bonding them. The most common way is to build the arch in concentric rings, each lialf a brick thick; that is, to lay the bricks all stretchers, and to depend upon the tenacity of the mortar or cement for the connec- tion of the several rings. This method is deficient in strength, unless the bricks are laid in cement at least as tenacious as them- selves. Another way is to introduce courses of headers at intervals, so as to connect pairs of half-brick rings together. This may be done either by thickening the joints of the outer of a pair of half-brick rings with pieces of slate, so that there shall bo the same number of courses of stretchers in each ring between two courses of headers, or by placing the courses of headers at such distances apart, that between each pair of them there shall be one course of stretchers more in the outer than in the inner ring. The former method is best suited to arches of long radius ; the latter, to those of short radius. Hoop iron laid round the arch, between half-brick rings, as well as longitudinally and radially, is very useful for strengthening brick arches. The bands of hoop iron which traverse the arch radially may also be bent, and prolonged In tbe bed-Joints of the backing and spandrels. 196 THE STAlilLlTY OF ARCHES. By the aid of hoop-iron bond.

The New- York City Building Laws make the following i ments regarding brick arches: — " All arches shall be at least four inches thick. Arches o"\ foot span shall be increased in thickness toward the hauu additions of four inches in thickness of brick. The first ad< thickness shall commence at two and a half feet from the c< tli(^ span ; the second addition, at six and one-lialf feet from I tre of the span ; and the thickness shall be increased then inches for every additional four feet of span towards the liai " The said brick arches shall be laid to a line on the centr a close joint, and the bricks shall be well wet, and the join with cement mortar in proyoitions of not more than two < to one of cement by measure.

Hide for RadUis of Brick Archett. — A good nUe for the of segmental brick arches over windows, doors, and othe openings, is to make the radius equal to the width of the Oj This gives a good rise to the arch, and makes a pleas- ing proportion to the eye. It is often desirable to span openings in a wall by means of an arch, when there is not sufficient abut- ments to withstand the thrust or kick of the arch. In such a case, the arch can be formed on two cast-iron skewbacks, which are held in place by iron rods, as is shown in Fig. 2. AVhen this is done, it is necessai^ to proportion the size rods to the thrust of the arch. The horizontal thrust of the very nearly represented by the following formula: — load on arch x span Horizontal thrust = y x rise of arch in feet' If two tension rods are used, as is generally the case, the ter of each rod can be detennined by the following mie: — ^. . . , / total load on arch X span Diameter lu iiicl.es = y/ ^ x rise of aich in fee»^ THE STABILITY OF ARCIIES.y 107 If only one rod is used, 8 should be substituted in the place of 16, in the denominator of the above rule; and, if three rods are used, 24 should be used instead of 1(5. Centres for Arches. — A centre is a temporary stnicture, generally of timber, by which the voussoirs of an arch are sup- ported while the arch is being builU It consists of parallel frames or ribs, placed at convenient distances apart, cui'ved on the outside to a line parallel to that of the soffit of the arch, and supporting a series of ti-ansverse planks, upon which the arch stones rest. The most common kind of centre is one which can be lowered, or struck all in one piece, by driving out wedges from below it, so as to remove the support from every point of the arch at once. The centre of an arch should not be struck until the solid part of the backing has been built, and the moi*tar has had time to set and haixlen ; and, when an arch forms one of a series of arches with piers between them, no centre should be struck so as to leave a pier with an arch abutting against one side of it only, imless the pier has sufficient stability to act as an abutment. When possible, the centre of a large brick arch should not be struck for two or three months after the arch is built. Mechanical Principles of the Arch, — In designing an arch, the fii-st question to be settled is the form of the arch; and in regard to this there is generally but little choice. Where the abut- ments are abundantly large, the segmental arch is the strongest fonn ; but, where it is desired to make the abutments of the arch as light as possible, a pointed or semicircular arch should be used. Depth of Keystone. — Having decided upon the form of the arch, the depth of the arch-ring must next be decided. This is generally determined by computing the required depth of keystone, and making the whole ring of the same or a little larger depth. In considering the strength of an arch, the depth of the keystone is considered to be only the distance from the exti-ados to the intra- dos of the arch; and if the keystone projects above the arch-ring, as in Fig. 1, the projection is considered as a part of the load on the arch. There are several rules for determining the depth of the key- r.tone, but all are empirical; and they differ so greatly that it is <lifficidt to recommend any particular one. Professor Rankine's Itule is often quoted, and is probably true enough for most arches. It applies to both circular and elliptical arches, and is as follows: — Rankine's Rule. — For the depth of the keystone, take a mean proportional between the inside radius at the crown, and 0.12 of a foot for a single arch, and 0.17 of a foot for an arch form- ing one of a series. Or, if represented by a formula, •Mi) THE STABILITY OP AECHE8. Bnt, if we sliouM compute the stability of a •eraidreular ardi of 20 foot span, and 1.3 foot depth of keystone, we should find thai the arch was vei^ unstablp; hen^e, in this case, we must throw tlw rule aside, and go by our own judgment. In the opinion of the autlior, such an arcli should have at least 2i feet depth of ucb- Ttng, and we wiil try the stability of the arch with that thickness. In ali calculations on tlie arch, it is customary to conaltler tlie an'U to be one foot thick at rightangles toltsface; for it is evident, thai, if an arch one foot thick is stable, any utmiberof arches of the same fliiiiensioiis built alongside of it would be stable. Graplilc Solution of tlie Stalilllty of tlie Arcli.— Tlie most convenient luctbod of detennlning the stability of the arch is by the graphic mutliod, as it is called. 1st Stbi'. — Draw one-half the arch to as large a scale as con- venient, and divide it up Into voussoirs of i!qual size. In this exaniiile, shown In Fig. '-i. we have divided the arch-ring into ten equal voussolrs. (It is not necessary that these should be the actttal voussolrs of which the arch is built. ) The next step Is to And the area of each voussolr. Where the arch-rfi^ Is divided into voussoirs of equal size, this Is easiest done tiy computing th« ana of the arch-ring, and dividing by the number of voussoira. Fls.3 Ridi' for 'W'li of •iiif-hiiif vf urdi-rim; is as follows: — Area in square feet = 0.7854 X (outside radius squared — itaW.c radius squared). In this example the wholi' area equals 0.78-Vl X J12.5* — Id*) = 44.2 s<|iiare feet. As tiiere are ten equal voussoira, the area of «*ch vonssilir is 4.4 square feet. Having drawn out one-half of the arch-ring, we divide eack Joint into tliree equal parts; and from the point A (Fig. 8] we lay off to a scale the area of each voussoir, one below the ot' THE STABILITY OF ARCHES. 201 with the top voussoir. The whole length of the line AE will equal the whole area drawn to same scale. The next step is to find the yertical line passing through the centre of gravity of the whole arch-ring. To do this, it is first necessary to draw vertical lines through the centre of gravity of each voussoir. The centre of gravity of one voussoir may be found by the method of diagonals, as in the second voussoir from the top (Fig. 3). Having the centre of gravity of one voussoir, the centres of gravity of the others can easily be obtained from it. Next, from A and E (Fig. 3) draw lines at 4b^ with AE, inter- secting at O. Draw 01, 02, 03, etc. Then, where AO intersects the first vertical line at a, draw a line parallel to 01, intersecting the second vertical at b. Draw 6c parallel to 02, cd parallel to 03, and so on to kn parallel to OlO: prolong this line downward until it intersects AO, prolonged at D. Then a vertical line drawn through 1) will pass through the centre of gravity of the arch-ring. 2i) Step. — Draw a horizontal line through A (the upper part of the middle third), and a vertical line through D; the two lines intersecting at C (Fig. 3). Now, that the arch shall be stable, it is considered necessary that it shall be possible to draw a line of resistance of the arch within the middle third. We will, then, first assume that the line of resistance shall act at A, and come out at B'. Then draw the line CB, and a horizontal line opposite the point 10, between Q and P. This horizontal line represents the hori- zontal thrust at the crown. Draw AP equal to QP, and the lines PI, P2, P3, etc. Then, from the point where AC prolonged intersects the first vertical, draw a line to the second vertical, parallel to PI ; from this point a line to the third vertical, parallel to P2 ; and so on. The last line should pass through B. If these lines, which we will call the line of resistance, all lie within the middle third, the arch may bo considered to be stable. Should the line of resistance pass outside of the arch-ring, the arch should be considered unstable. In Fig. 3 this line does not all lie in the middle third, and we nuist see if a line of resistance can yet be drawn within that limit. 2i) Triai.. — The line of resistance in Fig. 3 passes farthest from the middle third at the seventh joint from the top; and we will next pass a line of resistance through A and where the lower line of the middle third cuts the seventh joint, or at B (Fig. 4). To do this, we must prolong the line <jh, parallel to 07 (Fig. 4), until it intersects AO. In this case it intersects it at O; but this 18 merely a coincidence; it would not always do so. Through O draw a vertical intersecting PA prolonged at C. Draw a line 303 THE STABILITY OF ARCHES. through C &nd D, and the horizontal line p^, oppoalte the point 7: this line represents the new horizonUkl thrust H,. Disw AP = pQ, and the lines PI, P2, etc.; then draw the line of resistaniK )is before. It should pass through D if drawn correctly. This lime we aee that the line of reslatance Ilea within the middle third, except jiist a short distance at the springing; and hence we nw} consider the arch stable. If it had gone outside the middle third this time, to any great extent, we should have considered the anHi unatable. The above Is the method of determining the stability of M unloaded semicircular arch. Such a case very seldom occurs In practice; but it is a good example to Illustrate the method, whidi applies to all other cases, with a little difference in the method of determining the centre of gravity of loadod arches. FiB.4 Example II. — Loaded or awcharf/ed semicircular areh. We will take the same arch as in Example L, and snppoM It to l>e loaded with a wall of masonry of the same thickness and welgbt per square foot as tliat of the arch-ring ; the horizontal snrtece of rhc wall being 3 feet C inches above the arch-ring at the crown. 1st Stei-. — Find centre qfgraHty, Commencing at Ibe crown, divide the load and aFch-rlng Into strips two feet wide, making the last strip the width of the areb- ring at tlie springing.

The lines PI, P2, P3, etc., represent the magnitude and dirae- tion of the thrust at each joint of the arch. Thus PI represents the thrust of the first voussoir and its load ; P2, that of the flret two voussoirs and their loads; and so on. Then from the point a', where the line BP, prolonged, intersects the vertical line 1, draw a line a7/ parallel to PI; from 6', on 2, draw a line 6V parallel to P2, and so on. The last line should pass through Q, and be parallel to P6. Now, if we connect the points where the lines a'6', 6V, etc., cnk the joints of the arch, we shall have a broken line, which is known as the line of resistance of the arch. If this line lies within the middle third of the arch, then we conclude that the arch is stable. If the line of resistance goes far outside of the middle, we must see if it be possible to draw another line' of resistance within the mid- dle third; and if, after a trial, we find that it is not possible, we must conclude that the arch is not safe, or unstable. In the example which we have just been discussing, the line of resistance goes a little outside of the middle third; but it is very probable that on a second trial we should find that a line of resist- ance passed through R and Q' would lie almost entirely within the middle third. . The method of drawing the second line of resistance was explaineil under Example I. ; and, as the same method applies to all cases, we will not repeat it. The method given for Example II. would apply equally well for a semi-elliptical arch. Example 111. — Segmental archy with load (Fi^ 6). 1st Step. — To determine the centre ofgravify. In this case we proceed, the same as in the latter, to divide the arch-ring and its load into vertical slices two feet wide, and compute the area of the slices by measuring the length of the vertical lines An, Bh, etc. Having computed the areas of the slices^ we lay them off in order from R, to a convenient scale, and then proceed exactly as in Example II., the remaining steps detenAinlng the tlirust; and the lines of resistance are also the same as given under Example 11. In a flat segmental arch, there is practically no need of dividing the arch-ring into voussoirs by joints radiating from a centre, but to consider the joints to be vertical. Of course, when built, they must be made to radiate. Fig. 6 shows the computation for an arch of 40-loot flpan, and with a load 13i feet high at the centre. The depth of the arch- ring is 2 feet inches.

CHAPTER IX. RESISTANCE TO TENSION. OR THE STRENGTH OF TIE-BOD8, BARS, ROPES, AND CHAINS. The resistance which any material offers to being pulled apart is due to the tenacity of its fibres, or the cohesion of the particles of which it is composed. It is evident that the amount of resistance to tension which any cross-section of a body will exert depends only upon the tenacity of its fibres, or the cohesion of its particles, and upon the number of fibres, or particles, in the cross-section. As the number of the fibres, or particles, in the section, is pro- portional to the area, the strength of any piece of material must be as the area of its cross-section; and hence, if we know the tenacity of the material per square inch of cross-section, we can obtain the total strength by multiplying it by the area of the section in inches. The tenacity of different building-materials per square inch hM been found by pulling apart a bar of the material of known dimen- sions, and dividing the breaking-force by the area of the croti- section of the bar. Table I. gives the average values for the tenacity of building- materials, as determined by the most reliable experiments. Knowing the tenacity of one square inch of the material, all that is necessary to determine the tenacity of a piece of any uniform size is to multiply the area of its cross-section, in square inches, by the number in the table opposite the name of the material. Tliii would give the weight that would just break the piece; but, as what we wish is the safe load, we must divide the result by a factor of safety. Most engineers advise using a factor of safety of five f6r a (lead load, although the New-York City and also the Boston Building Laws require a factor of six. Denoting the factor of safety by Sf and the tenacity by T, we iKive as a rule. For a rectangular bar, breadth x depth XT Safe load = ^;7-^^^ (1) RESISTANCE TO TENSIOlf.

The square root of this is 1.6 or 1§ inches nearly: therefore the diameter of the rod should be If inches. Tensile Strength and Qualities of SteeL The elastic limit of steel should not be less than 40,000 poonds per square inch for high grade steel, 36,000 pounds for medium steel, and 30,000 pounds for solt steel. The ultimate tensile strength of high grade steel should range between 70,000 and 80,000 pounds per square inch ; of mediom, between 00,000 and 70,000 ; and of soft steel, between 52.000 and 60,000 pounds per square inch. The elongation in a length of 8 inches should be not less than 18 per cent, for liigh grade steel, 23 per cent, for medium, and 25 per cent, for soft stcol. The reduction of area at point of fracture should be not less than 35 per cent, of tho original area. Jligh grade steel i85 per cent, carbon) should be used for com- pression, bolsters, bearing-plates, pins, and rollers. Medium steel (1j per cent, carbon) should be osed for tension members, floor system, laterals, bracing, and, unless high gnde steel is specified, should be used for all steel members except rivets. Soft steel (11 or 12 j)er cent, carbon) should be nsed in rivets only, and should bo tested by actually making up into rivets, riveting two plates together, and upon being nicked and cut cmt should show a good, tough, silky structure, with no crystalline appeannoe.

All wrought iron must be tough, ductile, fibrous, and of uniform quality for each class, straight, smooth, free from cinder pockets or injurious flaws, buckles, blisters, or gracks.

If any test piece has a manifest flaw, its U^st shall not be considered. For each bar thus giving results more than 4 per cent, below the requirements, tests from two additional bars chall be furnished by the contractor without charge, and if in a total of not more than ten tests, two bars (or. for a larger number of tests, a proportionately greater number of bars) show results more than 4 per cent, below the requirements, it shall bo cause for rejecting the lot from which the sample bars were taken. Such lot shall not exceed 20 tons in weight, and bars of a single pattern, plates rolled in universal mill or in grooves, and sheared plates shall each constitute a separate lot. Rivet Steel. — 2l. Rivet steel shall have a specified tensile strength of 60,000 pounds per square inch, nnd test bars must have a tensile strength within 4, 03 pounds per square inch of that spe- cified, and an elastic limit, elongation, and reduction o ' area at the point of fracture, as stated in clause 17, and be capable of bending double, flat, without sign of fracture on the convex surface of the bend. Time of Inspection. — 22. The inspection and tests of the material will be made promptly on its being rolled, and the quality determined before it leaves the rolling-mill. All necessary facili- ties for this purpose shall bo afforded by the manufacturer ; but, if the inspector is not present to mak(^ the necessary tests, alter due notice given him, then the contractor shall proceed to make such namber of tests on the steel then being rolled as may have been agreed upon, or, in the absence of any special agreement, the number provided for in clause IG or 10, and the (luality of such materia] shall be determined thereby. Variation of Weigrhts. — 23. A variation in cross-section or weight of rolled material of more than 2^ per cent, from that specified may be cause for rejection. CAhT Iron. 24.

Workiiiansjiip. Inspection. — 25. Inspection of the work shall be made as it progresses, and at as early a period as the nature of the work permits. 26. All workmanship must be first-class. All abutting surfaces of compression members, except flanges of plate girders where the joints are fully spliced, must be planed or turned to even bearings so that they shall bo in such contact throughout as may be obtained by such means. All finished surfaces must be protected by white lead and tallow. 27. The rivet-holes for splice plates of abutting members shall be so accurately spaced that when the members are brought into position the holes shall be truly opposite before the rivets are driven. 28. When members are connected by bolts whioh transmit shearing strains the holes must be reamed parallel, and the bolts turned to a driving fit. 29. Hollers must be finished perfectly round and roller-beds planed. Rivets. — 80. Rivets must completely fill the holes, have foil heads concentric with the rivet, of a height not less than ,0 the diameter of the rivet, and in full contact with the surface^ or be countersunk when so requiretl, and machine-driven wherever prM- ticabie. 31. Built members must, when finished, bo true and free from twists, kinks, buckles, or open joints between the component pieces. Eye Burs and Pin-hole, and Pilot Nuts.— 82. All pin-holes must be accurately bored at right angles to the axis of the members, unless otherwise shown in the drawings^ and in piec^es not adjustable for len^.th no variation of more than one- thirty-se3oncl of an inch will be allowed in the length between centres of pin-holes ; tlio diameter of the pin-holes shall not exceed that of the pins by more than one- thirty-second inch, nor by more than one-fiftietli inch for pins under three and one-half inobes diameter. Eye bars must Ic strai^^ht before boring; the holes must be in the centre of the heads, and on the centre line of the bars. Whenever links arc to be packe;! more tiian onemi^tli of an inch to the foot of their length out of parallel with the axis of the structure, they must bo bent with a gentle RESISTANCE TO TENSION. 215 the head stands at right angles to the pin in their intended position before being bored. All links belonging to the same panel, when placed in a pile, must allow the pin at each end to pass through at the same time without forcing. No welds will be allowed in the body of the bar of eye bars, laterals, or counters, except to form the loops of laterals, counters, and sway rods ; eyes of laterals, stirrups, sway rods, and counters, must be bored ; pins and lateral bolts must be finished perfectly round and straight, and the party contracting to erect the work must provide pilot nuts where neces- sary to preserve the threads while the pins are being driven. Thimbles or washers must be used whenever required to fill the vacant spaces on pins or bolts. Tests of Eyes on Full Size Bars.— 33. To determine the strength of the eyes, full size eye bars or rods with eyes may be tested to destruction, provided notice is given in advance of the number and size required for this purpose, so that the material can be rolled at the same time as that required for the structure, and any lot of iron bars from which full size samples are tested shall be accepted — 1st, if not more than one-third the bai*s tested break in the eye ; or, 2d, if more than one- third do break in the eye and the average of the tests of those which so break shows a tensile strength in pounds per square inch of original bar, given by the formula — g3 pQQ_7,000 X area of origjnal bar _ ,^^ ^ ^.^^^^ ^^ ^^^ ^j -^ Circumference of original bar inches), and not more than one-half of those which break in the eye fail at more than 5 percent, below the strength given by the formula. Any lot of steel bars from which full size samples are tested shall be accepted if the average of the tests shows a strength per square inch of original bar, in those which break in the eye, within 4,000 pounds of that specified, as in clause 17 ; but if one- half the full size samples break in the eye, it shall be cause for rejecting the lot from which the sample bars were taken. All full size sample bars which break in the eye at less than the strength here specified shall be at the expense of the contractor, unless he shall have made objection in writing to the form or dimension of the heads before making the eye bars. All others shall be at the expense of the purchaser. If the contractor desires additional tests thev shall be made at his own expense, under the supervision of the purchaser, the acceptance of the bars to be determined by the result of all the tests in the manner above set forth. A variation from the specified dimensions 216 RESISTANCE TO TENSION. of the heads will be allowed, in thickness of one-tblrty.second inch below and one-sixteenth above that specified, and in diameter of OD^ourth inch in either direction. Piincbiug' and Reaming. — 34. In iron work, the diameter of the punch shall not exceed by more than one-sixteenth inch the diameter of the livcts to be used. Rivet-holes must be accurately spaced ; the use of drift-pins will be allowed only for bringing together the several parts forming a member, and they must not be driven with such force as to disturb the metal about the holes ; if the hole must be enlarged to adnut the rivet, it must be remade; all rivet-holes in steel work, if punched, shall be made with a punch one-eighth inch in diameter less than the diameter of the rivet in- tended to be used, and shall be reamed to a dluneter one-sixteenth inch greater than the rivet. Annealing. — 35. In all cases where a steel piece iu which the Full strength is required has been partially heated, the wlM^e piece must be subsequently annealed. All bends in steel most be nade cold, or if the degree of curvature is so great as to require heatings the whole piece must be subsequently annealed. Painting. — 86. All surfaces inaccessible after assembling must be well painted or oiled before the parts are assembled. 37. The decision of the engineer shall control as to the interpre- tation of drawings and specifications during the execution of work thereunder, but this shall not deprive the contractor of his right to redress, after the completion of the work, for an improper decision.

Tensile Strength and Quality of Wrou^ht-Imm. The best American rolled iron has a. breaking tenatle itTength of from fifty thousand to sixty thousand pounds per sqaitre Inch tar epecimens not exceeding one square inch in section. Ordlnar7bM>- iron should not brealt under a less strain than fifty thouNnd pounds per square inch, and sliould not take a set under a Knu less than twenty-five thousand pounds per square inch. A bar one inch square and one foot long should stretch fifteen per cent of Ui length before breaking, and should be capable of being bent, coH, 00° over the edge of an anvil without sign of fracture, ud should show a fibrous lestnre when broken. Iron IliJit will not meet these re<[airements fs not suitable for structures; Imt notliinii is gained by speclfyii^ more severe tMts, because, in bars of the sizes and shapes usually required for tneb work, nothinp mon? can be atlaineil with certainty, and coniden- Eiuus milkers will be unwilling to agree to furnish that which ll la not practicable to produce.

Appearance of the Fractured Surface of Wrouglit- Iron. At one time it was thought that a fibrous fracture was a sign of good tough wrought-iron, and that a crystalline fracture showed that the iron was bad, hard, and brittle. Mr. Kirkaldy's experi- ments, however, show conclusively, that, whenever wrought-iron breaks suddenly, it invariably presents a crystalline appearance; and, when it breaks gradually, it invariably presents a fibrous ap- pearance. From the same experiments it was also shown, that the appearance of the fractured surface of wrought-iron is, to a certain extent, an indication of its quality, provided it is known liow the stress was applied which produced I he fracture. Small, uniform crystals, of a uniform size and color, or fine, close, silky fibres, indicate a good iron. Coarse crystals, blotches of color caused by impurities, loose and open fibres, are signs of bad iron; and flaws in the fractured surface indicate that the piling and welding processes have been imper- fectly carried out. Kirkaldy^s Conclusious.^ Mr. David Kirkaldy of England, who made some of the most valuable experiments on record, on the strength of wrought-iron, came to some conclusions, many of which differed from what had previously been supposed to be true. The following are of special importance to the student of build- ing construction, and should be carefully studied : — " The breaking-strain does not indi(uite the quality, as hitlK'ito assumed. ** A hUjh breaking-strain may be due to the iron being of superior quality, dense, fine, and moderately soft, or simply to its being very hard and unyielding. ** A ioKJ breaking-strain may be due to looseness and coarsenc^ss in the texture; or to extreme softness, although very close and fine in quality. 1 Kirkaldy *B Ezperiraents on Wrought-iron iind Steel. 220 RESISTANCE TO TENSION. ** The contraction of area at fracture, previously oyerlooked, fo an essential element in estimating the quality of specimens. ** The respective merits of various specimens can be correctly as tained by comparing the breaking-strain y(9t/i% with the contraci of area. " Inferior qualities show a much greater variation in the breakj strain than superior. ^* Greater differences exist between small and lai*ge bars inooi than in fine varieties. ''The prevailing opinion of a rough bar being stronger thai turned one is erroneous. " Rolled bars are slightly hardened by being forged doii'n. '' The breaking-strain and contraction of area of iron plates greater in the direction in which they are rolled than in a tn verse direction. *^ Iron is less liable to snap, the more it is worked and rolled. '* The ratio of ultimate elongation may be greater in short tl in long bars, in some descriptions of iron; whilst in others then is not affected by difference in the length. '* Iron, like steel, is softened, and the breaking-strain reduced, being heated, and allowed to cool slowly. '* A great variation exists in the strength of iron bars which hi been cut and welded. Whilst some bear almost as much as uncut bar, the strength of others is reduced fully a third. " The welding of steel bars, owing to their being so easily bun by slightly overheating, is a difficult and uncertain operation. '^ Iron is injured by being brought to a white or welding heat not at the same time hanmiered or rolled. '^ The breaking-strain is considerably less when the strain is ai^ suddenly instead of gradually, though some have imagined that ' reverse is the case. '* The specific gravity is found generally to indicate pr^ty correc th<* quality of spiH'inieus. "' Till' doiisity of iron is decreased by the process of wire-draw and by the similar ])rocess of cold rolling,^ instead of increwted, previously imagined. *' The density of iron is decreased by being drawn out nude tensile strain, instead of increased, as believed by some. "" It must be abundantly evident, from the facts which have b * The couclusioii of Mr. Kirkaidy in renpect to cold rolllDg ia undoubtedly t when the rolling amonntrt to wirc-dniwini;: but, when tbe oomprenkm of Hurface by rolliiiK diminidheH the MH:tional area in greiUer proportion thtt cxtcndd the bar, the result, accordinfc to the experience of tho PlttsbnTj^ mi facturerH, ia a slight iucreaise in the density of the Iron. 1 [STANCE TO TENSION. 221 produced, that the breahing-strain, when taken alone, gives a false impression of, instead of indicating, the real quality of the iron, as the experiments which have been instituted reveal the somewhat tiarthng fact, that frequently the inferior kinds of iron actually yield & higher result than the superior. The reason of this diHer. enoe was shown to be due to the fact, that, whilst the one quality retained its original area only very slightly decreased by the strain, the other was reduced to less than one-half. Now, surely this variation, hitherto unaccountably completely overlookedj is of importance as indicating the relative hardness or softness of the material, and thus, it is submitted, forms an essential element in considering the safe load that can be practically applied in various structures. It must be borne in mind, that, although the softness of the material has the e£fect of lessening the amount of the breaking- strain, it has the very opposite effect as regards the workimj-Htrain. This holds good for two reasons: first, the softer the iron, the less liable it is to snap; and, second, fine or soft iron, being more uni- form in quality, can be more depended upon in practice. Hence the load which this description of iron can suspend with safety may approach much more nearly the limit of its breaking-strain than can be attempted with the liarder or coarser sorts, where a greater margin must necessarily be left. '* As a necessary corollary to what we have just endeavored to establish, the writer now submits, in addition, that the working- strain should be in proportion to the breaking-strain per square inch of fractured area, and not to the breaking-strain per square inch of original area, as heretofore. Some kinds of iron experi- mented on by the writer will sustain with safety more than double the load that others can cuspend, especially in circumstances where the load is unsteady, and the structure exposed to concussions, aa in a ship or railway bridge." Eye-Bars and Screw-Ends* Iron ties are generally of flat or round bars attached by eyes And pins, or by screw-ends. In either case, it is essential that the proportion of the eyes or screw-ends shall be such that the tie will not break at the end sooner than in the middle. In importaiit work, eyes are forged on the ends of flat or round bars, by hydraulic pressure, in suitably shaped dies; and, while the risk of a welded eye is thus avoided, a solid and well-formed eye is made from the iron of the bar itself. A similar process is adopted for enlarging the screw-ends of long 222 RESISTANCE TO TENSION. rods ; so that, when the screw is cut, the diameter of the screw il the root of the thread is left a little larger than the body of the rod. Frequent trials with saeh rods has proven that they will pull apart in tension anywhere else but in the screw ; the threads remaining perfect, and the nut turning freely after having been subjected to such a severe test. By this means the net section required in tension is made available with the least excess of material, and no more dead weight is put upon the structure than is actually needed to carry the loads imposed. T/ie diameter of the eye in flat bars, having the same thiokneBB throughout, should be 0.8 the width of the bar. The width of the metal on each side of the eye should be \ the width of the bar, and in front of the eye should be equal to the width of the bar. Wlien it becomes necessary to use a larger pin than here described (as when a bar takes hold of the same pin with bars of larger size), the amount of metal around the eye should be still further increased. The weight of an eye-bar, proportioned as here described, will be about equal to that of a plain bar of a length equal to the distaDce from centre to centre of the pins, plus twice the diameter of the pin multiplied by the width of bar, both in inches. The thickness of flat hara should be at least one-fourth of the width in order to secure a good bearing surface on the pin, and the metal at the eyes should be as thick as the bars on which they are upset. Table IV. gives the proportion for eye bars, sleeve nuts, and clevises, as manufactured by ttie ^ew Jersey Steel & Iron Co. Table VI. gives the proportion for upset screw-ends for dif- ferent sizes of rods, as adopted by the keystone Bridge Com' pany. Cast-iron has only about cno-thirJ the tensile strength of wroujj:! It-iron ; and as it is liabk* to air-holes, internal strains from uiH'ipial contraction in cooling, and other concealed defects, redu- cing its effective area for tension, it should never be used where it is subject to any great tensile stress. Tables. The following tables give the strength of iron rods, bars, steel and iron wire roi)es, nianila ropes, and dimensions of upset screw* ends. The diameter in Table III. is the least diameter of the rod; and, if the screw is cut into the rod without enlarging the end, the effective diameter between the tlu^ads of the icrew dumld be ised in calculating the strength of the rod.

Ropes of hemp fibres are laid with three or four strands of twisted fibres, and run up to a circumference of twelve inches. Hawsers are laid with three strands of rope, or with four rope strands. C<(hles are laid with three strands of rope only. Tarred ropes, hawsers, etc., have twenty-five per cent less strength than white ropes: this is in consequence of the injury the fibres receive from the high temperature of the tar, — 290°. Tarred hemp and manila ropes are of about equal strength. Manila ropes have from twenty-five to thirty per cent less strength than white ropes. Hawsers and cables, from having a less pro- portionate number of fibres, and from the increased irregularity of the resistance of the fibres, have less strength than ropes; th^ diflference varying from thirty-five to forty-five per cent, being greatest with the least circumference. Ropes of four strands, up to eight inches, are fully sixteen i^er cent stronger than those having but three strands. Hawsers and cables of three strands, up to twelve inches, are fully ten per cent stronger than those having four strands. The absorption of tar in weight by the several ropes is as fol- lows : — Bolt-rope . . . .18 per cent Shrouding . . 15 to 18 per cent Cables 21 per cent Spun-yarn . . 25 to 30 per cent White ropes are more durable than tarred. The greater the degree of twisting given to the fibres of a rope, etc., the less its strength, as the exterior alone resists the greater portion of the strain.

Thos in Fig. 1, let abed be a, beam resting upon the sup- ports 8S, which are very near logclher. If a sufflcientl; heavf load were placed upon tlie beam, it nould cause the beam to break, not by. bending, but by pushing the whole central part of the beam thrai^b between tlie ends, as represented in the figure. This mode of fracture is called " shearing." The resistance of a body to shearing is, like its resistance lo tension, directly proportional to tbe area to lie sheared. Hence, if we denote the resistance of one square inch of tlie material to shearing by F, we shall have as ihe safe resistance to shearing, Safe shearing > _ area to be sheared X strength fc S ft denoting factor of safety, as before. A piece of timber may be sheared either longitudinally or trans- versely; and, as the resistance is not the same in both cases, the value of F will be different In the two cases. Hence, in substi- tuting values for F, we must distinguish whether the force tends to shear the piece longituilinally (lengthwise), or Iransyersely (across).

If we let // denote the hori- zontal thrust of the rafter, then, by ,a simple deduction from formula 1, we have the rule: — Length of CD in inches = b.^th o^beam x r <2) F, in this case, being the resistance to shearing longitudinally. Example I. — The horizontal thrust of a rafter is 20,000 pounds, the tie-beam is of Oregon pine, and is ten inches wide: how far should the beam extend beyond the point D f Ana. In this case H = 20,000 pounds, and from Table X. we find that jP = 840; aS we will take at 5. Then 5 X 20000 = 10 X 840 * ^^ nearly 12 inches. Practically a large part of the thrust is generally taken up by an iron bolt or strap passed through or over the foot of the rafter and tie-beam, as at A (Fig. 2). When this is done, the rod or strap should be as obliquely inclined to the beam as is possible; and, whenever it can be done, a sti-ap should be used in preference to a rod, as the rod cuts into the wood, and thus weakens it. The two principal cases in building construction where the shearing strength must be computed, are pins and rivets; for the latter see pages o57-565. Strength of Pins in Iron Bridge and Roof Trusses. — Iron and steel trusses are now so generally used that it is neces- sary for the architect who is at all advanced in his profession to know how to determine the strength of the joints, and especially of pin joints ; and to facilitate the calculation of the necessary size of pins, we give Table II , which shows the single shearing strength and bearing value of pins, and Table III., showing the maximum bending moment allowed in pins. Pins must be calculated for shearing, bending, and bearing strains, but one ol" the latter two only (in almost every case) deter- mines the size to be used. By bearing s( rain is meant the force required to crush the edges of the iron plales against, which the pin bears. The several strains usually allowed per square inch on pin con- nections in bridges are : shearing, 7,500 pounds; crushing, 12,000 pounds ; and bending, 15,000 pounds for iron, and 20,000 pounds for steel. The shearing strain is measured on the area of cross-section ; the 236 STRENGTH OF PINS. crushing strain, on the area measured by the product of the diame- ter of the pin, by the thickness of the plate or web on which it bears. The bending moment is determined by the same rules as given for determining the bendiug moment of beams. When gi'oupsof bars are connected to the same pin, as in the lower chords of trusses, the sizes of bars must be so chosen, and the bars so placed, that at no point on the pin will there be an exces- sive bending strain, on the presumption that all the bars are strained equally per square inch. The following example will show the method of determining the size of pin in a simple joint. Example.— Fig. 3. Determine the size of pin for the joint in the lower chord of a truss, shown in Fig. 3, the middle bar being a vertical suspension rod, merely to hold the chord in place. 40,000 IX 4' I -. ^ IX 4'^40,000 * IX 4'-40.000 ^ 40,000 1X4' 4- i Fig. 8. Ans, The shearing and crushing strain in this case is 40,000 pounds. The bending moment will be 40,0(iO x 1"; the distance between the centres of the two outer bars = 40,000 pounds. Prom Table III. , we find that to sustain a bending moment of 40,000 lbs., with a fibre strain of 15,000 lbs., will require a 3" or 3^" pin. From Table II., we find that the bearing value of a 3^" pin is but 37,500 lbs., and that we must increase the size of the pin to 8f inches. The shearing strength of a 3|" pin is, from Table II., 67,500 lbs., so that the size of pin we must use in this case is deter- mined by the bearing strain. To be sure of the correct size of the pin, one must make the calculation for all three of the strains.

STRENGTH OF PINa 239 Bending Moment in Pins. The only difficult part of the process of calculating the sizes of pins will generally be found in determining the bending moment. In cases where the strains all act in the same plane, the bending moment can generally be determined by multiplying the outside force by the distance from its centre to the centre of the next bar, as in the foregoing example. When, however, the forces act in several planes, as is generally the case, the process of determining the bending moment is more difficult, and can be best determined by a graphic process, first published by Prof. Chase Green, and in- cluded in his lectures to the students in engineering at the Univer- sity of Michigan. As the pieces acting on any well-designed joint are symmetrically arranged, it is unnecessary to consider more than one-half of their number. Fig. 4 shows a sketch of one-half the members of a joint in the lower chord of a Howe truss. The pieces are parallel to the plane of the paper, and the pin is perpendicular to the same, but drawn in cabinet perspective, at an angle of 45° with a horizontal. The bars are assumed to be each one inch thick, and the channel to have one-half -inch web. The centre of the hanger is }" from the centre of the channel. The method of obtaining the bending moment is as follows : Draw the line A B at an angle of 45° with a horizontal, and, com- mencing with c, lay off the distances between the centres of the bars to a scale (1^" or 3" to the foot will be found most convenient) ; then draw the lines 1-3, 2-3, etc. , parallel to the pieces which they represent in the trass, to a scale of pounds. Resolve the oblique forces into their horizontal and vertical components (in this exam- ple there is but one oblique force). Next draw the stress diagram (Fig. 6) as follows : On a horizon- tal line lay off 1-2 equal to the first or outer force ; 2-3, equal to the next, 3-4 ; and 4-1, being the horizontal component of the brace, closes the figure. In the same way, lay off the vertical forces 15, 5 6, 61. If the forces are correct, the sum of the forces acting in one direction will always equal those acting in the opposite direction. From 1 draw the line 1 at 45", equal to the same scale of, say, 20,000 pounds, or any other convenient length. Draw 2, 3, 4, etc. Then, in Fig. 5, starting at the first horizontal force, draw c d parallel to 2, 6^ e parallel to 3, «/ parallel to 4, and/^ parallel to 1. In the same way, starting at the first vertical force, draw r 8 par- allel to 5> s ^ parallel to 6, and t 2 parallel to ' ' '^ 240 STREN(iTH OF PINS. line c d e fk will represent the boundary of the horizontal ordi. nates, and /• ,9 1 'O the boundary of the vertical ordinate?. And to find the resultant of these ordinates at any point on the pin, it is o ^ t only nooci^sary to draw tlic diagonal from the ends of the ordinates ut that ))<)ii)t. Thr.s. thi> resultant at X^ Fig. ft, will be i»-ii, uid it is evidtnt that this is the longest hypothenuM whk^ onn be BTRENGTH OF PINS. 241 dxawn ; and this hypotheause, multiplied by 0-1 (20,000 pounds), gives 62,600 pounds as the maximum bending moment on the pin. To obtain the maximum bending moment,, it is necessary to take the longest hypothenuse that can be drawn, no matter at what place it occurs. If one desires to try the effect of changing the order of the bars on the pin, it can readily be done. Suppose the diagonal tie to change places with the next chord bar. The horizontal stress dia- gram then becomes 1-2, 2-si, 3-4', 4-1. The equilibrium polygons A Fig. 11. will now be (Pig. l)cdef' k' and r' s' f w, and the longest hypoth- enuse, w a*, or 3J", which makes the bending moment 75,000 pounds, showing that the arrangement in Pig. 4 is the best. As a rule, in arranging the bars on a pin, those forces which counteract each other should be close (ogcthor. To further illustrate this method of dotcrniininp: the bending moment on pins, we will determine the bending moment for the pin at the joint A, Pig. 8. This is the some truss as worked out on page 686, the strains given in Pig. 8 being ^ of the strains at the joint, as all the pieces are doubled.

Drawing the line AB, Fig 11, we lay off the outer force at a; then measaring off an incli. the distance between centres of the two outer bars, we lay off the next force {)arallel to the direction in which it acts ; and in the oame way, the other two forces. The three inclined forces must be resolved into their horizontal and vertical components. We next draw tlio stress diagram (Fig. 10) to the same scale of i)ounds, mak- ing 1 e(iual 20,000 pounds. The lines 4 and 6 ha[)pen, in this case, to coincide. Then, in Fig. 11, we draw a d parallel to 2, '> f parallel to 8, c d — 4, and d e parallel to 1. In the same way, we obtain i\w line hjk B. In this case, it will be seen tlial the longest horizontal ordinate is h by while at that point there is no vertical ordinate^ ; also, that no hypothenuse can be dra^Ti which will he as long as h b, so that we must take A 6 as the greati»st re- sultant : and this, multiplied by 20,000 pounds, gives 31,800 {xmnds as the inaxirnuni bending moment cm the pin. It will be seen that this is just the prmluct of the outer force by its arm to the centre of the next bar, so that the greatest bending moment is at that point. To determino the sizeof the pin, we find, from Table III., that for a steel j;iii to sustain this moment, allowing a flbro strain of 20,<MM) pounds, wc shall need a 25" pin. This pin has a bearing value of JU,5()) i)()un(ls for a bar an inch thick. The outer bar in this case is J thick, and has a strain of J31.800 [>ounds, equivalent to 42,4'K) pounds for a 1 bar. And we see, from Table II., that we shall need to u.'^e a lU' pin to meet this strain. The shearing streij;^^th of a ii\" pin is 36 tons, or nn)re than double the strain. Hence we must use a lU" pin. or. by increasing the thickness of the bars, we might reduce the pin to 3 inches. BEARIKQ-PLATES FOB GIBBEBS AKD COLUMKS.

Answer. — ^As the plate rests on concrete, the bottom of the plate should have an area equal to 212,000 -h150= 1,413 square inches, or 37 inches square. The column should be about 10 inches in diameter and 1 inch thick. The shape of the base-plate should be as shown in Fig. 1. The height K should be equal to the projection P, and D should be equal to the diameter of the column. The thickness of all p<w- tions of the plate should be equal to that of the column above the base. This is not so much required for strength as to get a perfect casting, as such castings are liable to crack by unequal cooling when the parts are of different thicknesses. The projection of the flange G should be three inches, to permit of bolting the plate to the bottom of the column. It will be seen that in such a plate no transverse strain is developed in any portion of it. THICKNESS OF FLAT BASEPLATES. For small columns and wooden posts with light loads, plain flat iron plates are generally used. They may have a raised ring to fit inside the base of an iron column, or for a wooden post, a raised dowel, 1^ inches or 2 inches in diameter. If the plate is very thick, a saving in the weight of the plate may be made by bevel- ling the edge, as shown in Fig. 2, without loss of strength. The outer edge, however, should not be less than one inch thick. When such a plate is used, it is evident that if the plate is to distribute the load equally over its entire area, it must have suffi- cient transverse strength to resist bending or breaking, and this strength will depend upon the thickness of the plate. It is diffi- cult to make an exact formula for the thickness of such platu^ IKABiyG-PLkTES 50^ ^1212X5 JlTl/ COLrHTs. 34ic bat the writer ]u« -is-ricr-i -JiaE: *>_*: will be *lway? :c li* <^*-^ iLie strength: •r '-M«— ' ThickZKS Lt Z'J^Z>t -Z.

The resistance to crushing may be found by multiplying the distance X by the thickness of the bracket and the product by 13,000. Thus, if X is four inches and the thickness one inch, the resistance to crushing would be 52,000 pounds. Such a bracket would support the end of a 20- inch light steel beam of 16 feet span under its full load ; for heavier beams, the thickness of the bracket and also the length D should be increased. ■v^ STHEMGTU ( POSTS, STRUTS, AND C0LUMN3. 243 CHAPTER XL STRBirGTH OF POSTS, STRUTS, AND COLUMNS.

The values for white oak, yellow pine, and spi*uce, are derived from experiments on full-size posts, made with the government testing- machine at Watertown, Mass. ; the smaller value representing the strength of such timber as is usually found in the market, and the larger value, the strength of thoroughly seasoned straight- grained timber. For these woods a smaller factor of safety may be a Trautwine. b Hatfield. ii44 STRENGTH OF WOODEN POSTS AND COLUMNS. used than for the others, tlie strength of wlilch was derived from experiments on small pieces.

Stren^h of Wooden Posts over Twelve Diameters in Length. When the length of a post exceeds twelve times its least thick- ness or diameter, the post is liable to bend under the load, and hence to break under a less load than would a shorter column of the same cross- section. To deduce a formula which would make the proper allow- ance for the length of a column has been the aim of many engineers, but their formulse have not been verified by actual results. Until within two or three years the formulse of Mr. Lewis Gordon and Mr. C. Shaler Smith have been generally used by engineers, but the extensive series of tests made on the Gov- ernment testing machine at Watertown, Mass., on full-size col- umns, show that these formulae do not agree with the results there obtained. Mr. James H. Stanwood, Instructor in Civil Engineering, Mass. Institute Technology, in the year 1891 platted the values of all the tests made at the Watertown Arsenal up to that time on full- size posts From the drawing thus obtained he deduced the fol- lowing formula for yellow pine posts : Safe load pec square inch = 1,000 — 10 x . ' ^■,^. . — r-^ ^ ^ breadth m ins. The author has carefully compared this formula with the results of actual tests, and with other formulae, and believes that it meets the actual conditions more nearly than any other formula, and he has therefore discarded the tables of wooden posts given in the previous editions of this work and prepared the following tables for the strength of round and square posts of sizes coming within the range of actual practice For other sizes the loads can easily be computed by the formula. The loads for oak and white pine posts were computed b} the following formulse : 346 3TBENGTH OF WOODBN POSTS AND COLD For oak and Norway pine : For white pine and spmce posts : Safe load per sqnare inch = 635-6 X !!°^^° '^ . "^ ^ breudth id ius. in which the breadth is the le ast sid e of a rectangular stnit, or the diameter of a round post. The round posts were compnted for the half-inch, to allow tor being turned out of a square post, of the size next larger. The formuUe were onl^ used for posts exceeding ISdiameters for yellow pine, and ten diameters for other woods. For posts having bad knots, or other defects, or which are known to be eecentrically loaded, a deduction of from 10 to 35 per cent should be made from tbe values given iu the tables. 8APB LOAD IN POUNDS FOR YELLOW PINB POSTS <IU>ITND AND SQUARE). STRENGTH OF WOODEN POSTS AND COLCHNS. 347 248 STRKNGTH OF WOODEN POSTS AND OOLUMNa eccentric Loardrng. When the load on a post is applied in such a way that it is not distributed uniformly over the end of the post, the loading is called eccentric and the effect on the post is much more injurious than if the load were uniformly distributed. When a post supports a girder on one side only, or when the weight from one girder is much more than from the other, the load becomes eccentric, and an allowance must be made in the safe load varying from 10 to 25 per cent., according to the amount of eccentricity. The exact allowance cannot bj calculated, so that one must necessarily use his judgment in the matter, remembering that it is best to be on the safe side. Iron caps for timber pillars are often used in important con- structions, and are an excellent invention, as they serve to dis- tribute the thrust evenly through the pillar, and also form a bracket, which is often desirable, for supporting the ends of girders where a second post rests on top of the first. Fig. 1 shows the section of one of the simplest forms of caps. The Goetz and Duvinage caps, described at the end of Chapter XXIV., are the best shape for mill construction. STRENGTH OF CAST-IRON COLl \S, 249 Cast-Irou Columns. For cast-iron columns, where the length is not more than six or eight times the diameter or breadth of colunm, the safe load may be obtained by simply multiplying the metal area of cross-section by ()'i tons, which will give tons for the answer. Above this proportion, that is, where the length is more than eight times the breadth or diameter, the following formulas should be used. These formulas are known as Gordon's and Rankine's.

Ans. We must first find the metal area of the cross-section of the column, which we obtain by subtracting the area of a circle of four inches in diameter from the area of one six inches in diameter. The remainder will be the area of the metal. The area of a six- inch circle is 28.27 square inches, and of a four-inch, 12.56 square inches; and the metal area of the column is 15.71 square inches. 250 STRENGTH OF CAST IKON COLUMNS. Then, substituting known values in fonnnla. 5, we liave 15.71 X 18830 Safe load = .^^^^^^ = 104700 pounds. ^"^40(rx"36 There is no use in carrying tlie result farther than the nearest hundred pounds, because the accuracy of our formulas will not warrant it.

Ana, The area of cross-section would* be 8 + 7 = 15 square inches. Then, by formula 7, 15 X 13330 Safe load in lbs. = 20736 ~ 58300 pounds. ^■^ 133 X 04 Projectingr Caps. Hollow columns calculated by the foi-egoing formulas should not be cast with heavy projecting mouldings round the top or bottom, Fig. 2 as in Fig. 2, at a and 6. It is obvious that these are weak, and would break off under a load much less than would be requhredto STRENGTH OF CAST-IRON COLUMNS. 251 cnish the column. When such projecting ornaments are deemed necessary, they should be cast seimrately, and be attached to a pro- longation of the cohimn by iron pins or screws. Ordinarily it is better to adopt a more simple base and cap, which can be cast in one piece with tlie pillar, without weakening it, as in Fig. 3. In all the rules and formulas given for cast-iron colunms, it is supposed that the ends have bearings planed true, and at right angles to the axis of the column. When the columns are used in tiers, one above the other, the end connections of the columns should be made by projecting flanges, wide enough to received-inch bolts for bolting the columns together, as shown in Fig. 4, page 242^, and the entire ends and flanges should be turned true to the axis of the column. The end joints are generally placed just above the floor beams, for convenience in erecting the work. The basement columns should be bolted to cast-iron base plates, as shown in Fig. 1, page 242a. The author does not consider it advisable to use cast-iron columns with hinged ends, or in build- ings whose height exceeds twice their width. Tables of Cast-iron Columns. By an inspection of the foregohig fonnulas for cast-iron columns, it will be seen, that, all other conditions being the same, the strength per square inch of cross-section of any column varies only with the ratio of the length to the diameter or least thickness. Thus a column 15 feet long and 10 inches diameter would carry the same load per square inch as a similar column 9 feet long and 6 inches diameter, both having the ratio of length to diameter as 18 to 1. Owing to this fact, tables can be prepared giving the safe load per square inch for colunms having their ratio of length to diame- ter less than 40. On this principle Table IV. has been computed, giving the loads per square inch of cross-section for hollow cylindrical and rectangu- lar cast-iron colunms. To use this table, it is only necessary to divide the length of the column in inches by the least thickness or diameter, and opposite the number in column I. coming nearest to the quotient find the safe strength per square inch for the column. Multiply this load by the metal area in the cross-section of the column, and the result will be the safe load for the column. Example III. — Wliat is the safe load for a 10-inch cylindrical cast-iron column 15 feet long, the shell being 1 inch thick ? Ans. The length of the colunni divided by the diameter, botn in inches, is 18, and opposite 18 in Table lY. we find the safe load 252 STRENGTH .OF CAST-IRON COLUMlSrS. per square inch for a cylindrical column to be 7,360 pounds. The metal area of the column we find to be 28.27 inches ; and, multi- plying these two numbers together, we have for the safe load of the column 208,236 pounds, or about 104 tons. Besides this table, we have computed Table V. following, which gives at a glance the safe load for a cast-iron column coming within the limits of the table, and of a thickness thei*e shown. Thus, to find the safe load for the column given in the last example, we have only to look in the table for columns having a diameter of 10 inches and a thickness of shell of 1 inch, and oppo- site the length of the column we find the safe load to be 10^ tons, the same as found above. The safe load in both tables is one-^ixth of the breaking-load. TABLE IV. Strength of Hollow Cylindrical or Rectangular Cast-Iron Pillars, (Calculated bt Formulas 5 and 6.)

The principal disadvantage, as found in practice, is the difficulty, if not impossibility, of making rigid connections with the beams and girders. In buildings of not more than five or six stories, however, this is not of great importance. (Jast-iron is, of course, subject to flaws, and the columns are liable to be cast of uneven thickness of metal, but by careful inspec- tion these defects can be discovered, and any columns containing them rejected. For unprotected columns, c'ast-iron is unquestionably better than steel, as has been quite conclusively demonstrated by the experi- ments of Prof. Bauschinger, of Munich. Cast-iron, three quarters of an inch or more in thickness, is also practically uninjured by rust, while it is clnime<l that wrought-irOn or steel may be almost destroyed by it. Although cast iron columns may be made in a great variety of shapes, the hollow cylindrical and rectangular columns have thus far been the principal shapes used, and for interior unprotected columns the cylindrical column probably meets the usual require- ments better than any others. Every year, however, the require- ments of building regulations are being made more strict, so that at the present time it is required in most of our large cities that all vertical supports in buildings over five stories in height shall be protected by fireproof material, and for such buildings the author would call attention to the H-shaped column, as offering the following advantages : 1. Being entirely open, with both the interior and exterior sur- faces exposed, any inequalities in thickness can be readily discov- ered, and the thickness itself easily measured, thus obviating any necessity for boring, and rendering the inspection of the columns much less tedious. 2. The entire surface of the column can be protected by paint. 3. When built in brick walls, the masonry fills all voids, so that no open space is left, and if the column is placed as shown in Fig. 4, only the edge of the column comes near the face of the wall. 4. Lugs and brackets can be cast on such columns better than on circular columns, ■pjQ 4 especially for wide and heavy girders. 5. The end connections of the columns dp not require projecting rings, or flanges, which are often objection- able in circular columns. The cost of columns of this shape should not exceed that of cir- cular columns of the same strength. STBBKOTH 07 OABT-IBON COLDKKS. 2SBb As to the strength of such columns, the onl; experimental data which we have on the subject is that obtAined from the experiments of Mr. Eaton HodghinsoD, which give them about theaame strength as cyliudrieal columns of the same diameter, when the length does not exceed thirty diameters and the thicliness ia not less than three- quarters of an inch. When surrounded bj- masonry they would probably be stronger than the cylindrical column. The column may be flreprocfed in the same way as the Z-bar column, which it much resembles. The space occupied by the column 8lig}itly exceeds that ot both the cylindrical and Z-bar column. Fio. 6. PiQ. B. hut not enough to be of any serious consequence.

The increasing use of hollow rectangular cast-iron columns in buildings, particularly when enclosed in brick walls, has led the author to compute Table V.6, which gives the safe loads for a large number of sizes and lengths, the application of the table being readily apparent. The loads correspond with and are based upon those given in the last column of Table IV. The author would recommend that the various sizes be not used for greater lengths than those given in the table. 266e STRENGTH OF CAST-IBON COLUHKa TABLE V.6 iSafe Loads in Tons of 2,000 Pounds far HoUovo Bertnngular Cast-iron Columns.

Within the past three years wrought-iron and steel columns have been gradually taking the place of cast-iron columns in fire- proof buildings, and the time is probably not far distant when wrought- iron oi" steel columns will be used almost exclusively for the inte- rior supports of all largo buildings. In iron or steel trusses the struts are invariably made of the same material, though, of course, the strut bars are of a different section from that usod for ties. There are many contingencies which may arise in the manufact- ure of cast-iron columns which preclude anything approaching uniformity in the product. Among these are unevenness in the thickness of the metal, which has sometimes been found to be very different on one side of a round column from that on the opiK)site side. The presence of con- fined air, producing '* blow holes ** and *' honey-comb," and the col- 356 STRENGTH OF WROUGHT-IRON POSTS. lection of impurities at the bottom of the mould are aAso frequent sources of weakness in cast iron. The most critical condition, however, is that due to the unequal contraction of the metal during the process of cooling, thereby giving rise to initial strains, at times of sufficient force to produce rupture in the column or in its lugs on the slightest provocation. In many cases the trouble is due to faulty designing or careless- ness in the execution of the work ; yet, even under favorable condi- tions, it is so difficult to secure equal radiation from the moulds in all directions that castings entirely exempt from inherent shrink- age strains are probably seldom produced. As a protection against these contingencies, resort must be had cither to the uncertain expedient of a high factor of safety, or a material such as wrought iron or rolled steel must be adopted of a more uniform and reliable character than cast iron. Columns built up o* rollcl socLioiis alsj offer better facilities for fire-proof covering ; and for columns where extreme loads are to be supported, as in the lo.ver sLorieii oi' very high buildings, wrought- iron and steel columns wiU occupy less room than a cadt-iron column, and in many instances will be found to be cheaper. The forms of rolled columns now in general use in buildings are the ** Phoenix," '* Larimer," " Gray," and *• Z-bar" columns, illus- trated on pages 267-389A. For the strut bars of trusses two-channels bars, angle or T-bars, are generally used. In trusses with pin connectiotis the channel bar offers the best shape for the struts. I-beams are also often used. Streiigrtli of Wroiijjflit-iron Posts. The formulas most generally accepted by engineers of the present day for the strength of irre^^ular- shaped sections (such as nearly all these struts are) are as follows : Column — Square Bearing, Ultimate strength / _ 40,000 in lbs. per sq. inch i "~^ sq. of le ngth in inches ^ ' ' 36,000 X r* 1 + Column — Pin and Square Bearing^ Ultimate strength | _ 40,000 in lbs. per sq. inch ) ~"I sq. of le ngt h"lnlnches ^^ STRENGTH OF WROUGHT-IRON POSTa 257 Column — Pin Bearing, Ultimate strength ) _ 40,000 in lbs. per sq. inch ) ~' sq. of length in inches ' ' 18,U00 X r» in which r denotes th»j radius of gyration. A column is square hearing when it has square ends which butt against, or are firmly connected with, an immovable surface, such as the floor of a building, or riveted connections : it is pin and square hearing when one end only is square bearing, and the other end presses against a close-fitting pin ; and it is pin bearing when both ends are thus piti-jointed with the axis of the pins in parallel direc- tions (for example, the posts in pin -connected trusses). To shorten the process of computation by this formula, Table VI. has been computed, which gives the ultimate strength per square inch of cross-section for different proportions of the length in feet, divided by the radius of gyration. The radius of gyration of the principal patterns of rolled bars now on the market may be obtained from the tables given in Chapter XIII. To use these tables, it is only necessary to divide the length of the strut (in feet) by the least radius of gyration, if the strut is free to bend either way, and from the table find the load per square inch corresponding to this ratio. The area of the cross-section, multi- plied by the load, taken from the table, will give the ultimate strength of the strut or column. To find the safe load, divide by 4 for columns used in buildings, and 5 for trusses. Example 1. — What is the greatest safe load of a pair of Carnegie angles, 6" x 6", 33 pounds per foot, riveted together, 12 feet long, with square or fixed ends ; the angles being used as a strut bar in a truss ? Ans, The least radius of gyration is 1.85. which is contained in 12, 6.5 times. The strength for a column, with square ends, for this ratio of _ is, from Table VI., about 34,200 pounds per square r inch ; this, divided by 5, gives a safe strength of 6,840 pounds per scjuare inch, or a total safe load for the two angles of (6,840 x '.9.90) 136,116 pounds, or 68 tons. When two or more angles, channels, or I-beams are connected together by lattice work, the radius of gyration for the whole sec- tion should first be obtained, and then the method of calculation is the same as for a single bar. Channel bars are generally used in pairs, either connected by lat- tice work, or, where additional strength is required, by wrought-iron 258 STRENGTH OF WROUGHT-IRON POSTS. plates riveted to the flanges of the channels. In sach cases, the channels should be spaced far enough apart so that the colomu will be weakest in the direction of the web ; i.e., with neutral axis at right angles to the web, for which case the radius of gyration of the column is the same as that of a single channel. In Table VII. the quantities d and D show the distance that the channels should be separated to have the same radius of gyration about either axis. If the radius of gymtion is wanted for the neutral axis through the centre of section paraliei with web, it can readily be found, as the distance between the centre of grjivity of channel and centre of section with the aid of Column VI., in tables, pages 301-21. If two channels are connected by means of two plates, instead of lattice bars, it is necessary to obtain, fii*st, the moment of inertia of the section, whence the radius of gyration is found as the square root of the quotient of the moment of inertia divided by the area of the section. This moment of inertia, for a neutral axis, through centre of sec- tion perpendicular to the plates, is ecjual to the cube of the width of the plate, multiplied by ,'2 of tiie thickness of the two plates added, plus the combined area of the two channels multiplied by the square of the distance from their centres of gravity to the neu- tral axis. For a neutral axis in a direction parallel to the plates, it is equal to the moments of inertia of the channels as found in the tables, increased by the area of the two plates multiplied by the square of the distance between the centre of the plate and the centre of the section. The strength of such a strut may, however, be calculated with suflBcient accuracy for most purposes, by taking the radius of gyra- tion of a single channel, and getting the strength per square inch of cross-section, and then multiplying by the total area of the sec- tion. If the channels are s[)aced according to Table VII., or even greater, the true radius of gyration will be a little larger than that of the single channel, so that what error there is will be on the saf^ side. Table VII. has been computed on this basis, giving the strength of two channels, used as a strut. The heavy figures give the safe load (factor of saf('ty of 5) for the two channels latticed together, and the figures in italics give the safe load per square inch of sec- tion ; so that, in case the pair of channels alone do not give sufficient strength, one can readily tell how much additional area will be required. Table VIII. gives the safe load of Carnegie T-bara» used singly. STRENGTH OF WROUGHT-IRON POSTS. 259 Example ?. — A certain strut in a roof truss (18 feet Jong) has to withstand a stress of 50 tons, and it is desired to use two channels for the purpose ; what sized channels will be required, the strut baviiiij pin joints ? Ans. Looking down the column headed 18 (Table VII.), we find the nearest load under 50 tons is 40.8, for two 10" channels, pin bearing, and the safe strength per square inch is WA tons. As the load in the table lacks 9.2 tons of that required, the section of the channels 9 2 must be increased by -^, or 2.7 square inches, which is equivalent to 9 pounds per foot additional weight for the two channels ; so that we should use two 10" channels, weighing 24^ pounds per foot each, and the channels should be spaced 9.1" out to out, the flanges being turned in. In pin-connected trusses, two channels make the most practical form of strut bar. A common form of column or strut to be recommended for com- paratively light loads is that formed simply of two angles riveted together back to back, or four angles united either with a single course of lattice bars or a central web plate, as in Fig. 4, page 264. The radii of gyration for such struts are tabulated on pages 319-21. In cases where four angles are used, the two pairs should be spaced far enough apart to make the column weakest about a neu- tral axis parallel to the central web or latticing. The radius of gyration will then be the same as that given in the tables for a single pair of angles, since the moment of inertia of the web plate about such an axis is so small that it may be disregarded entirely. Example 3. — A strut 16 feet long, to be fixed rigidly at both ends, is needed for supporting a load of 80,000 pounds. It is to be com- posed of two pairs of angles, united with a single line of i" lattice bars along the central plane. What weight of angles will be re- quired, with a safety factor of 5 ? • Ans. We will assume four W x 4" angles, and determine the thick- ness of metal required. The angles must be spread ^" in order to admit the latticing. From the table on page 321, we find the radius of gyration of a pair of light 3" x 4" angles with the 3" logs par- l 16 alleland^"aparttobe 1 97 '. Hence the value of - = Y~Q7 — ^ 1» for#vhich the ultimate strength, as per Table VI. = 31,680 pounds. The allowable strain per square inch with a safety factor of 5 will therefore be 31,680 ^ 5 = 6.34 ) pounds, and the area of the re- quired cross-section 80,000 -t- 6,340 = 12.62 square inches, or 3.16 square inches for each angle. Hence the weight per foot of each 260 STKENGTU OF WROUGHT-IRON COLUMNS. TABLE VI. Ultivuite Strength of Wrought-iron Columns.

Both actions maj take place at tfa* \ lOUGHT-raON AND STEEL COLUMNS. i!Ot> same time, bat if the Latter occurs alone, it maj be aa indication that the rivet spacing or the thickness ol the metal is losufficient. The niJe has been deduced from actual eiperiments upon wrought- fron columns, that the distance between centres of rivets should not exceed, in the line of strain, sixteen times the thioltness of metal of the parts joined, and that t]je distance Ijetween rivets or other points of support, at right angles to the lino of strain, should not exceed tbirt;-tiTO times the thickness of the metal. On page 244 sections are shown of some of the most common forms of steel and wrougbt-lron columns. Figs. 5 and 6, as well as the Ph<Bnix and Keystone Columns illustrated on piiges 267 and 377, belong to the type known as Cloeed Columns. As it is impractica- ble to repaint the inner surfaces of such columim, they should pref- erably be used only for interior work, where tlie clianggs in tem- perature are not considerable, and the air is comparatively dry. In places exposed to the extremes of temperature and unprotected from the rain, the paint on the inner surface of the column will, sooner or later, cease to be a protection to the iron, corrosion will set in, and, once begun, will continue as long as there is unoxidjzed metal left la the column. Figures 4 and 8 on page 264 represent types of }]=- columns with open sections, which readily admit -^-J of repainting, and are therefore suitable for out- Ik. door work. J 0( these, the latter, designed bj C. L, Strobel, C.B., and known as the Z-bar Column, is believed to oSer advantages equal, if not superior to those t any other steel or wrought-iron column in the f market. Bracing of Channels. — When chaqnels are i oonnected by hittioe work (as in Fig. 1). that there ^ may not be a tendency in the channels to bend be- £__jl tween the points of bracing, the distance I should jr be made to equal the total length of strut, mul- P,g i_ tiplied by the least radius of gyration of a single colunm, and the product divided by the least radius of gyration for the whole section ; or, I = „ where the letters have the following significance : / = length between bracing, L = total length of stmt. r = least radios of gyration for a single channel. B =■ leaat ntdiu of gyration for the whole section. i 266 STRENGTH OF STEEL COLUMNS. When the radius of gyration of channels, about an axis parallel with the web, is not ffiven, it will be sufficiently accurate to use for r tlie distance given in CoJumn VL in the tables on pages 801- 321. Example 4. — We will determine the distance l^ for the strut calcu- lated in Example 2. In this case 2/ = 18 feet, or 216 inches, R = 3.85 : and in Column VI., page 804, the distance d for a 20-pound channel is .70, for a 35-pound channel .75, so that we will assume .72 as the proper distance for a 24-pound channel ; or r = .72; 216 X .72 then I — 3.85 .- - = 40 inches. This same rule will also apply for angles, though with them the lattice work is generally doubled, in Fig. 2. ii 11 Steel Columns. '' Exi)oriments thus far made upon steel stmts indicate that fof Icnfifths up to 90 radii of gyration," (or 7.5 in Table VI„) '* their ulti- mate stnngth is alx)ut 20 |)or cent, higher than for iron. Beyond this )N)int. th<' excess of strength diminishes until it becomes zero at about 200 nulii. After passing this limit, the compressive re^ist- anco of <\y'v\ and iron seems to Iwcome practically equal.*** In Tables Vil and VIII. the loads to the left of heavy black line are for ratios less than 90 diameters. an<l those to the right for ratios alH)V(' that limit.

Between every two segments an iron bar is frequently inserted, through which the rivets pass. These bars, or '* flats *' as they are called, increase the area of the cross-section, and contribute much to the strength of the pillar. Table IX. gives the sizes of the columns rolled by the Phoenix Iron Company, as pub- lished in their book of sections. The interior surfaces of all Phoenix columns are thoroughly painted before riveting the segments together. After twenty years of service in exposed situ- " ations, columns have been cut open and l5 found uninjured by rust, and the paint still in good condition. The illustrations on pages 270 and 271 show methods of joining the several tiers of columns in a building, and the connections with girders, etc. Bearings for girders or beams at ir- regular heights are provided by project- ing brackets that are properly riveted to a segment, or by a plate passing transversely through the column be- tween the flanges, with seating angles alon^r its upper edge. For joining columns at the levels of different tiers, inside sleeves of wrought iron may be usod. They are riveted to the segments of the lower column, and cting tenon which is fastened by diagonal through bolts colamn when it is put in place. line the actual value of Phoenix columns under loads, have been made at different times and on various id especially that of the United States (Government at STRENGTH OF WRODQHT-lR< COLDMNB.

Another special form of wrought-irou column is that known as the Keystone Octagon Column, manufactured by Carnegie, Phipps & Co. It is made of four rolled segments of wrought iron, riveted together as shown in Fig. 5. mmr///M Fie. 5. The table oo the following page giyes the diameters, areas, and weights of these columns as rolled. To compute the strength of these columns it is first necessary to find the radius of gyration (r), when the strength per square inch can then be determined from Table VI. The radius of gyration may be found by the following formulo : J= 7= A r 12 r = /4.' in which moment of inertia ; D area of column ; d radius of gyration. = outside diameter ; = inside diameter ; 278 KEYSTONE WROUGHT-IRON COLUMNS. 1- ll. tf u Q.

Within the past three years, what is known as the Z-bar column has been introduced, and is now manufactured by all the leading iron mills. It is built up of four Z-bars, riveted together, as shown in Figs. 7 to 12, page 264. The dimensions of the different shapes manufactured will be found in the tables given in Chapter XIII. This column possesses so many advantages for building purposes that it is undoubtedly destined to be extensively used. Its claims for superiority are based mainly on the following qualities : 1. Cheapness, — The Z-bars are furnished at a lower price per pound than channels and I-beams, and only two rows of rivets are required, while four or more are used for any other column of an equal sectional area. 2. High Ultimate Resistance to Gompressioii. — Careful tests made upon fifteen full -sized (Carnegie) specimens, in which the web plates were replaced by lattice bars, showed an average ultimate resistance per square inch of 35,650 pounds for lengths ranging from 64 to 88 radii. These results are as favorable as have been obtained for closed cylindrical columns, and are more favorable than have been obtained for any other open columns. For detailed report of the tests referred to, see paper by C. L. Strobel, in Trans. Am. Soc. C. E., April, 1888. 3. Great Adaptability for Effecting Connections with I-heams. — When used in buildings, for supporting single floor beams, or double beam girders, this quality is of the greatest importance. The illustrations on pages 280 and 281 show different methods of making the connections, as employed by Carnegie, Phipps c: Co. This column may bo easily covered with terra-cotta blocks, for fireproofing, and finishing with plaster or cement, and the air-space between the tiling and the metal adds to the protection of the latter in the event of fire. The recesses in the columns may bo used to good advantage for conducting water and gas pipes, electric wires, etc. 4. Favorable Form for Inspection and Repairing. — This is a very desirable feature when used for out door work. When unusually heavy loads must be provided for, as in the case of columns for tho Iov,cr stories of very high buildings, the stand- ard sections of Z-bar columns may be reenforced to the required strength by using either a double central web plate, or by the addi- tion of outside cover plates, or, if need be, both, forming thus a Z-BAK COLUMNS.

A form of column, offering advantages in some cases, especially if the column is to be finished circular in form, is shown by Fig. 3 on page 281. Pig. 8 on the same page shows the manner of splicing columns, whether of equal or unequal size. •* The standard connections for double I-beam girders and single iloor beams to Z-bar columns, detailed on pages 280 and 281, were designed to fairly cover the lunge of ordinaiy practice. When the maximum loads in tons indicate<l for each case are exceeded, the connections may be correspondingly strengthened by simply using longer vertical angles for the brackets and increasing the number of rivets. In proportioning these connections, the shearing strain on rivets was assumed of a maximum intensity of 10,000 pounds per square inch. For steel Z-bar columns, the maximum loads given for these ccmnections may be safely increased 15 per cent.'* The following tables give the safe load in tons for standard Z-bar columns of different lengths, as manufactured by Carnegie, Phipps &Co. The values for steel Z-bar columns should be used only for cases in which the loads are for the most part statical, and equal, or very nearly so, on opposite sides of the columns. When there is much eccentricity of loading, or the loads are subject to sudden changes, the tabulated values must be n^duced according to circumstances. The Carnegie Steel Co. has discontinued the manufacture of iron bars of all kinds, and their product is now confined entirely to steel, which has practically superseded iron in structural work, being sold at the same price per pound, while 20 per cent, stronger. (The steel here referred to is what is knovrn as "mild" steel, having an ultimate strength of about 60,000 pounds per square inch, and containing a comparatively low percentage of carbon.) Example. — What size of Z-bar column, 30 feet long, with square bearing ends, will be required to carry a load of 200 tons, using a safetv factor of 4 ? A7is. Referring to table of steel Z-bar columns, page 287. we find that for a length of 30 feet, a 12-inch column with |-inch metal, weighing 118 4 lbs. per foot, will support with safety 202.6 tons, which is slightly in excess of the load. * Carnegie, Phipps & Co.'t) Pocket Companion, 1890.

The Gray Column* The fibres on the opposite page show a perspective Tiew and section of a column which was patented in December, 1892, by Mr. J. H. Gray, C. E., and which has since been used in some promi- nent buildings. As may be seen from the illustratioDS, this column is made of angle- bars riyeted together and braced every few feet in height by flat iron ties, as shown in the perspective view The angles may be reenforced by cover-plates riveted to their faces, when necessary to increase the strength of the column. Any bridge shop can make these columns by paying a small royalty to the patentee. As angles are the cheapest shape of rolled steel that is manufact- ured, this should be an economical column. The special advantages claimed for this column are : 1. A strong, economical section. 2. Provides continuous pipe space from basement to rool 3. Has four flat sides for connections. 4. Size of column does not vary when section is iucreased or diminished. 5. Does away with ** cap-plates," and joins sections of colamns firmly together, making a continuous column. Tests made in the hydraulic machine of the Keystone Bridge Works on 14-inch columns, 11 feet long, developed a resistance to crushing of from 38,000 to 40,000 pounds per square inch of section, and a modulus of elasticity of from 24.030,000 to 27,750.000 pounds. The tables on pages 2SQe-2S9h give the safe loads of several siaea of square, wall, and corner columns as computed by Mr. Gray. By varying the thickness of angles and adding cover-plates, the strength of the column can be greatly increased. Tables of wall and corner columns, and further particulars, maj be obtained by addressing Mr. J. U. Gray, C. E., Chicago.

CHAPTER Xir. BENDINGMOMENXa Tmk bonding-niomont of a beam or tnws represents the destnic- live energy of the load on the l)eani or truss at any point for which tlie ]>en(hng-nionicnt is computed. The moment of a force around any given axis is the product of the force into the pen^^ndicular distance between the line of action of the force and the axis, or the product of the force into its arm. In a I^eam the forces or loads are all vertical and the arms hori- zontal. The bending-moment at any cross-section of a beam is the alge- braic siun of the moments of the forces tending to turn the beam ai*ouud the horizontal axis passing through the ceuti'e of gravity of the section. Example. — Suppose we have a beam with one end securely fixed into a wall, and the other end projecting from it, as in Fig. I. ]jet us now 8upix>se wc liave a weight, which, if placed at tlie end of the beam, will cause it to break at the point of support. /^^v, ^ Then, if we were to place the ^\^ ^^^ weight on the Ix^am at a point ^^v, ^\^ ^-x near the wall, the beam would ^>.^ ^^V/ support the weight easily; but, as ^\^ we move the weight towards the outer end of the beam, the beam bends more and more; and, wh<»n ^' the weight is at the end, the beam breaks, as shown by the dotted lines. Fig. 1. Now, it is evident that the destructive eneigy of the weight la greater, the farther tlie weight is removed from tlie wall-end of the beam, thouixh the weight itself remains the same all the time. Tlie reason for this is, that the moment of the weight tends to turn the beam alwut the point A, and thus producer a pull on the ui>i)er fibres of the beam, and compresses the lower fibres. As the weight is moved out on the beam, its moment becomes greater, and hence also the pull and compression on the fibres; and, when tlie ^rm ^^ BENDING-MOMENTS. 291 moment of the weight produces a greater tension or compression on the fibres tlian they are capable of resisting, they fail, and the beam breaks. Before the fibres break, however, they commence to striitch, and this allows the beam to bend: hence the name "Ixmd- ing^nionient" h«s been given to the moment which causes a beam to bend, and perhaps idtimately to break. There may, of course, be several loads on a beam, and each one having a d liferent monvent, tending to bend tlie beam; and it may ilso occur that some of the weights may tend to turn the beam in different directions: the algebraic sum of their moments (calling those tending to turn the beam to the right +, and the others — ) would be the bending-moment of the beam. Knowing the bending-moment of a beam, we have only to find the section of the beam that is capable of resisting it, as is shown in the general theory of beams. Chap. XIV. To determine the bending-moments of beams mathematically, requires considerable training in mechanics and niathematics; but, as most beams may be placed under son\e one of the following cases, we shall give the bending-moment for these cases, and then show how the bending-moment for any other methods of loading may be easily obtained by a scale diagram. Examples of Bencliugr-Momeuts. Case I. Beam fixed at one end^ and loaded with concentrated load W. Bending-moment = W X L. {L may, or may not, be the whole length of the beam, according to where the weight is located. ) Case II.

The hendin{i-moment for any case other than the above may easily be obtained by the graphic method, which will now b« explained. Graphic Method of Determining Benclin^- Moments. The bending-moment of a l)eam supported at both ends, and loader! with one concentrated load, may be shown graphically, as follows : — Let W be the weight applied, as shown. Then, by rule under Case VI., thebeuding- niomeut directly under [<« f^ J^ jjj W = IF X in X n Draw the beam, with ^ the given span, accu- rately to scale, and then measure down the line AB equal to the bending - mo- iiuMit. Connect B with each end of the beam. If, then, we wished to find the bending- moment at any other point of the beam, as at o, draw the vertical line y to BC ; and its length, measured to the same scale as ABf will give the bending-moment at o. Beam with two concentrated loads. To draw tlie bending-moment for a beam with two concentrated loads, first draw the dotted Hues ABl) and ACD, giving the outline 294 BENDINO-MOMENTS. of Ihe bending-nioment for each loful separately; KB heing eqiwl toWx It^^ „„(, rr pqjial to P X '-^ Fi9.IO Now, Ihe beiuting-momnnt at Uie pclnt E equals RJi, doe to tha loud ir, anil Kb, clue to tlie load P: liunce the l)Uiiilii^(-nioiuent at i'slioHld lie drawn ainul to En+ Kh — Kll, ; anil at Fthe beiMl- Iiig iiioiiienl shoHkt equal H,'+ Fc= FC,.

Draw the beam with the given spaii. accurately to a scale, m before, and at the middle of the beam draw the vertical line AH I equal to If x gi W representing the whole distributed load. Then connect the points C, it, D by a parabola, and It will ^ve the outline of the bendlng-moraents. if, now, we wanteil the bendlng-Qiomeat at the point a, we have only to draw the vertical line ab, and measure It to th<! same scale as ^ B, and it will be the moment deatred. Hethoda for drawing the parabola may be found in " Geometrical Problems," Part I. Beam loaded viith both diatritruted and concenlrated loads. To determine the bendlng-momcnt in this case, we have only to combine the methods for concentrated loads and for the distributed load, as shown in „ the accompanying figure. The bend- ing-moment at any point on the beam will then be lim- ited by the line ABC on top, and CHEFA on the bottom ; and the gii'atesi bendfiig- moraent will be the longest verti- cal tine that can be drawn between Ha.ia these two bounding lines. For example, the tiending-momeiit at X would be BE. The posi- tion of the greatest ben ding-moment will depend upon the position. of the concentrated loads, and it may aud may not occur at tlie 296 BENDING-MOMENTS. Example. —What is the greatest bending-ittmneilt In a hektk of 20 feet span, loaded with a distributed load of 800 pounds and a concentrated load of 500 pounds 6 feet from one end, and a con- centrated load of 600 pounds 7 feet from the other end ? L Ans. 1st, The moment due to the distributed load is W X ^* 800 X 20 or y = 2000 pounds. We therefore lay off to a scale, say 4000 pounds to the inch, Bl = 2000 pounds, and draw a parabola between the points Af B, and C. 2d, The bend- ing-moment fbr the concentrated load of 500 pounds is 50 X 6 X 14 20 , or 2100 pounds. Hence we draw E2 = 2100 pounds, to the same scale as Bly and then draw the lines AE and CE, 3d, The bending-monient for the concentrated load of 600 pounds 600 X 7 X 13 — , or 2730 pounds; and we draw i)8 = 2780 pounds, IS 20 and connect D with A and C. 4th, Make EII = 2 — 4, and DG = 3 — 5, and connect O and H with C and A and with each other. The greatest bending-nioment will be represented by the longest vertical line which can be drawn between the parabola ABC and tlu* broken line AHGC. In this example we find the longest veitl- cal line which can be drawn is xy ; and by scaling it we find the greatest bending-nionient to be 5550 pounds, applied 10 feet 11 inches from the point A. In this case, the position of the line Xy was determined by drawing the line TT\ parallel to IIG, and tangent to ABC, The line Xy is drawn through the point of tangency. Note. — As the measurements ased for determining the bending-momeiit \ in feet, we must multiply the moment by 12. to get it into inch poands; otfaar- wise, in working out the dimenaione of the beam, they would be in feot Inntfiad of inches. MOMENTS OF INERTIA AND RESISTANCE. 297 CHAPTER Xm. MOMENTS OF INERTIA AND RESISTANCE, AND RADIUS OF GYRATION. Moment of Inertia. The strength of sections to resist sti-ains, either as girders or as posts, depends not only on the area, but also on the form of the cross-section. The property of the section which represents the effect of the form upon the strength of a beam or post is its mo- ment of inertia, usually denoted by I. The moment of inertia for any cross-section is the sum of the products obtained by multiply- ing the area of each particle in the cross-section by the square of its distance from the neutral axis. Note. — The ueutral axis of a beam is the line on which there is neither tension nor compression; and, for wooden or wronght-iron beams or posts, it may, for all practical purposes, be considered as passing through the centre of gravity of the cross-section. For most forms of cross-section the moment of inertia is best found by the aid of the calculus; though it may be obtained by dividing the figure into squares or triangles, and multiplying their areas by the squares of the distance of their centres of gravity from the neutral axis. Moment op Resistance. The resistance of a beam to bending and cross^breaking at any given* cross-section is the moment of the two equal and opposite forces, consisting of the thrust along the longitudinally compressed layers, and the tension along the longitudinally stretched layers. This moment, called "the moment of resistance," is, for any given cross-section of a beam, equal to • moment of inertia extreme distance from axis* In the general formula for strength of columns, given on p. 281, the effect of the form of the column is expressed by the square of the radius of gfyration, which is the moment of inertia of the sectiou divided by its area; or -r = r^. The moments of inertia of the principal elementary sections, and a few common 206 MOMENTS OF INERTIA AND RESISTANCE. forms, are given below, which will enable the moment about any given neutral axis for any other section to be readily calculated by merely adding together the moments about the given axis of the elementary sections of which it is composed. In the case of hollow or re-entering sections, the moment of the hollow portion is to be subtracted from that of the enclosing area. Moments of Inertia and Resistance, and Radii of Gyration.

Moments of Inertia and Radii of Gyration of Mercliant Sliapes of Iron and Steel. For the sections of rolled iron beams and bars to be found in the tnarket, the moments of inertia are given in the '* Book of Sections " published by the manufacturers. The following tables give the moments of inertia and radii of gyration for the principal sections manufactured by ( amegie, Phipps & Co., the New Jersey Steel and Iron Company, and the Phoenix Iron Company (revised to October 1, 1891). The Pencoyd Iron Works have recently made changes in a number of their sections, and some of the old seotioDS of iron beams and channels have been abandoned, and they are not at present prepared to furnish the revised data. The tables give the least weight for each section of iron beam, and the minimum and maximum weights for channels, deck beams, and angle irons. These shapes can be rolled for any weight between the two given, while the weight of the beams can also be greatly increased. With the quantities given in these tables, one can find all the data required in usual calculations. The tables on pages 322-24 will be found very oonTenie&t in computing the strength of struts formed of two or four angle bart.

When a section is employed alone, either as girder or post, the neutral axis passes through its centre of gravity. When rigidly connected with other sections forming part of a compound section, the neutral axis passes through the centre of gravity of the com- pound section; and therefore the moment of inertia of the elemen- tary section will not be that around its own centre of gravity, but around an axis at a distance from that point. The moment tjif inertia of a section aitout an axis other than that thronyh its mi- tre of (jravitjj is (Mjuai to the moment aixmt a i>arallel axis iHitt^ing tliruu^h its coiilrt' of ^Tavity plus the area of the section mulli plied by tlif square of tlu* distance Ix^tween the axes. The first step, then, in findinji; the moment of inertia, is to find the position of the »'entre of i^ravity of the se<^tion. For all sym- nirtrieal sections, this, of course, lies at the middle of the depth. For triani^lrs. it is found on a line j)arallel with the hjiso, and tlis- tant ont'-third the heii;ht of the triangle above the bast». For other sections, it is found by supposing the area divided up into elemen- tary sections, and nndti])lying the area of each such section by the distance of its centn* of gnivity from any convenient line. The sum of these products ilivided by the total area of the si»ction will give tile distance of the centre of gravity from the line from which the distances w<'re measured.

Radius of Gyration of Compound Shapes. {Ninth Edition.) In the case of a pair of any shape without a web the value of B can always be readily found without considering the tiioment of inertia. The radius of gyration for any section around an axis parallel to another axis passing through its centre of gravity, is found as follows : Let r = radius of gyration around axis through centre of grav- ity ; B = radius of gyration around another axis parallel to above ; d = distance between axes. When r is small, E may be taken as equal to d without mate- rial error. Thus, in the case of a pair of channels latticed to- gether, or a similar construction.

PRINCIPLES OF THE STRENGTH OF BEAMS. 829 CHAPTER XIV. GZSNERAL PRINCIPIiES OF THE STRENGTH OF BEAMS, AND STRENGTH OF IRON BEAMS. By the term "beam" is meant any piece of material which supports a load whose tendency is to break the piece across, or at right angles to, the fibres, and which also causes the piece to bend before breaking. When a load of any kind is applied to any beam, it will cause it to bend by a certain amount; and as it is impossible to bend a piece of any material without stretching the- fibres on the outer side, and compressing the fibres on the inner side, the bending of the beam will produce tension in its lower fibres, and compression in its upper ones. This tension and compression are also greatest in those fibres which are the farthest from the neutral axis of the beam. The neutral axis is the line along which the fibres of the beam are neither lengthened nor shortened by the bend- ing of the beam. For beams of wrought-iron and wood the neutral axis practically passes through the centre of gravity of the cross- section of the beam. To determine the strength of any beam to resist the effects of any load, or series of loads, we must determine two things: first, the destructive force tending to bend and break the beam, which is called the " bending-moment ; " and, second, the combined resist- anceof all the fibres of the beam to being broken, which is called the **ni oment of resistance ." The methods for finding the bending-moments for any load, or series of loads, have been given in Chap. XII. ; and rules for finding the moment of resistance, which is equal to the moment of inerlia divided by the distance of the most extended or compressed fibres from the neutral axis, and the quotient multiplied by the strength of the material, have been given in Chap. XIII., together with tables of the moment of mertia for rolled iron sections of the usual patterns. Now, that a beam shall just be able to resist the load, and not break, we must have a condition where the bending-moinent in the beam is equal to the moment of resistance multiplied by the strength of the material.

For ezainplej suppose we have a rectangular beam of yellow pine loaded at irregular pomts with irregular loads: what dhnon- sions shall the beam be to carry these loads ? We will suppose that we have found the bending-moment caused by these loads to be 480,000 inch pounds. Then, as bending-moment equals moment of resistance multiplied by li, 480,000 pounds = —\^ x 1800 = J? x 2>« x 800 ; _ • , 4H00()0 or B X D^= " SOO ~ If we assume i> = 12 inches, then B = ^ =11 inches ; or, 144 the beam should be 11 inches by 12 inches. If, instep of a hard-pine beam, we should wish to use an iron beam to carry our loads in the above example, we must find a beam whose moment of resistance nuiltiplied by 12,000 equals 480, OOC) inch pounds. We can only do this by trial, and for the first trial we will take the Trenton I2:t-inch 125-pound beam. Tlie moment of inertia of this beam is given as 2S8; and its moment of resistance is one-sixth of this, or 48. Multiplying this by 12,000, we have 576,(X)0 pounds as the resisting-force of this beam, or 96,000 pounds over the bending-moment. Hence we should prob- ably use this beam, as the next lightest beam would probably not be strong enough. Fn this way we can find the strength of a beam of any cross-section to carry any load, however irregularly disposed it may be. Strength ol' Wrouglit-Iron Beams, Clianiiels, Aiijyle and T Bars. It is very seldom that one needs to compute the strength of wrought-iron beams, channels, etc. ; because, if he uses one of the regular sections to be found in the market, the computations have already been made by the manufacturers, and are given in their handbook. There might, however, be cases where it would be necessary to make the calculations for any particular beam; and to tneel such^cascs we give the following formulas. 332 PRINCIPLES OF THE STRENGTH OF BEAMS. Beams fixed at one end, and loaded at the other (Fig, 1). Safe load in pounds = 1000 X moment of inertia length in feet x y . (1) Beams fixed at one end, loaded with vniformly distributed load (Fig. 2). Safe load in pounds = 2000 X moment of inert ia length in feet X y . (2) Fig. 2.

Safe load in pounds Fig. 6. 1000 X moment of inertia X span in feet ^(5) m X nX y Beams supported at both ends, loaded with W pounds, at a dis- tance m from each end (Fig. 6). Fig. 6. Safe load W, in pounds at each point = 1000 X moment of inertia (6) m in feet x y The letter y in the above formulas is used to denote the distance of the farthest fibre from the neutral axis; and, in beams of sym- metrical section, y would be one-half the height of the beam in inches. These formulas apply to iron beams of any form of cross- section, from an I-beam to an angle or T bar. For steel beams, increase the value of W one-third. Weight of Beam to be subtracted from its Safe Load. As the weight of iron beams often amounts to a considemble proportion of the load which they can carry, the weight should always be subtracted from the maximum safe load : for beams with concentrated loads, and for beams with distributed loads, one-half the weight of the beam should be subtracted. Example 1. — What is the safe load for a Trenton 12i-inch light I-beam, 125 pounds per yard, having a clear span of 20 feet, the load being concentrated at a point 5 feet from one end ? 1000 XIX span 1000 X 288 ;^ ^0 Ans.

Example 2. — A 12-inch Carnegie iron channel-bar, wdgliing 90 pounds per yard, and having a clear span of 24 feet, supportBA concentrated load at two points, 6 feet from each end. Wliat is the maxiinuin load that can be supported at each point consistent with safety ? Avs. Safe load at each point = ;;-— ^ 6x6 4825 pounds. The moment of inertia for channels and an^e-bars, and other sections, will be found in Chap. XIII. Deepest Beam always most EconomicaL Whenever we have a large load to carry with a given span, It will be found that it can be carried with the least amount of iron by using the deepest beams, provided the beams are not too strong for the load. Thus, suppose we wish to support a load of tons with a span of 20 feet, by means of Trenton beams. We oould do this either by one 12i-inch beam at 125 pounds per yard, or by two 9-inch beams at 85 pounds per yard. But the 12Hnch beam, 21 feet long, would weigh only 875 pounds, while the two 9-incfa beams would weigh 1190 pounds; so that, by using the deeper beam, we save 315 pounds of iron, worth from three to five cents per pound. C The following table, under the heading |F?, gives the relative strength of Trenton beams in proportion to their weighty thns exhibiting the greater economy of the deeper patterns.

IOjQO STRENGTH OF IRON AND STEEL BEAMS. 335 Another important advanta^ in the use of deeper beams is their greater stiffiiess. By referring to the tables, it will be seen tiiat a beam twenty feet long, under its safe load, if 6 inches deep will deflect 0.95 inch ; 9 inches deep, will deflect 0.63 inch ; 12 i^ inches deep, will deflect 0.46 inch ; and 15 inches deep, will de- flect only 0.38 inch. A floor or structure formed of deep beams will therefore be much more rigid than one of the same strength formed of smaller sections. There are, of course, cases where the use of deep beams would be inconvenient, either from increasing the depth of the floor, or from the fact that, with a light load and short span, they would have to be placed too far apart for convenience. In general, however, it will be best to employ the deep beams. Inclined Beams, — The strength of beams inclined to the horizon may be computed, with suflBcient accuracy for most purposes, by using the formulas given for horizontal beams, taking the horizon- tal projection of the beam as its span. Steel and Iron Seams. — The relative efficiencies of steel and iron beams depend upon the conditions under which they are used. The transverse strength of beams of the same length and section is proportional to the tensile strength of the material, or beams made of steel, of 65,000 pounds tenacity, will possess an ultimate stren^h about 80 per cent, greater than similar beams made of iron of 50,000 pounds tenacity. But the steel beam will not be stiffer than the iron beam — that is, it will deflect under working loads as much as the iron beam of the same length and section ; the steel beam merely bending farther than the iron beam without injuiT to its elasticity. Therefore, if strength without regard to stiffness is sought, the steel beam is the best ; but if stiffness without regard to ultimate strength is desired, beams of either material would probably prove of equal utility. Steel beams should not be used for their full load when the span in feet exceeds tivice the depth of the beam in inches. Note.— Since 1893 the Carnegie Steel Company has discontinued the manufacture of iron beams and bars for structural work, and now manufacture all their shapes in steel only. As steel beams, angles, etc., are sold at the same price per pound, and are about 20 per cent, stronger than iron, steel has naturally almost entirely superseded iron in rolled sections. Strengrth of Trenton, Pencoyd, Phoenix, and Car- negrie Rolled Beams, Channels, Angle and T-Bars — Iron and Steel. The foUowing tables ^ve the strength and weight of the various sections to be found m the market, together with the general dimensions of the I-beams. The tables are in all cases made up from data published by the 386 STBElfGTH OF IB017 AND 8TEBL BBAMB. respectiye manufacturers. The deflection of the beams under their maximum safe distributed load is also given in some of the tables. The tables on pages 849 to 363 will to found very convenient, for they can be used for the spans indicated, without any computations whatever. In these tables, the loads to the nght of and below the heavy line will crack plastered ceilings. When 12- to 24-inch beams are used to their full capacity for spans less than 10 feet^ the web should be stiffened at the ends.

These tables also contain the maxim am load that should be placed on the beam, whatever the length, unless the web is stiffened at the points of support. Example. — What should be the maximum distributed load for a 15-inch 145-lb. iron beam of 10 feet span ? Ans. The coefficient of this beam is 648,600 lbs. Dividing by 10, we have 04.860 lbs., or 32.4 tons as the safe load ; but we see, by the last column, that it will not be safe to put more than 22.1 tons on the beam without stiffening the web. Hence, the safe load for that span is 22.1 tons. It is only for very short beams that this condition will apply. STRENGTH, WEIGHT, AND DIMENSIONS OF PENCOYD I-BEAMS— STEEL. Depth of beam, in inches.

Beams Supportingr Brick Walls. In the case of iron beams supporting brick walls having no openings, and in wliich the bricks are laid with the UBual bond, the prism of wall that the beam sustains will be of a triangular shape, tlie height being one-fourth of the span. Owing to freqaenft iirogn- larities in the bonding, it is best to consider the height as one4hinl of the span. Fig. 7. The greatest bending-stress at the centre of the beam, mulling from a brick wall of the above shape, is the same as that caused by a load one-sixth less, concentrated at the centre of the beam, or two-thirds more, evenly distributed. The weight of brickwork is very nearly ten pounds per square foot for one inch in thickness ; and from tlds data we find that the bending-stress on the beams would be the same as that caused by a uniformly distributed load equal to 25 X square of span in feet X thickness In inches - 1» J) Having ascertained this load, we have merely to determine from the proper tables the size of beams required to carry a distrfbuted loail of this amount. £xAMi>LK. — It is proposed to support a solid brick wall IS inches thick, over an opening 12 feet wide, on rolled Iron beams: *. should be the size and weight of 1)eams ? x. Hy the rule given alH>ve, the unifonnly distributed load FRAMING AND CONNECTING IRON BEAMS. 365 which would produce the same bending-stress on the beam as the wail, equals 25 X 144 X 12 9 = 4800 pounds. As the wall is twelve inches thick, it would be best to use two beams placed side by side to support it, as they would give a greater area to build the brick on ; then the load on each beam would be 2400 pounds, or 1.2 tons. From the preceding tables for safe distributed loads on beams, we find that a 4-inch heavy beam would just about support this load; but as a 5-inch light beam would not weigh any more, and would be nmch stiffer, it would be better for us to use two 5-inch light beams to support om- wall. If a wall has openings, such as windows, etc., the imposed weight On the beam may be greater than if the wall is solid. For such a case consider the outline of the brick which the beam sustains to pass from the points of support diagonally to the out- side comers of the nearest openings, then vertically up the outer line of the jambs, and so on, if other openings occur above. If there should he no other openings, consider the line of imposed brickwork to extend diagonally up from each upper comer of the jambs, the intersection forming a triangle whose height is one-third of its base, as described above. When beams are vsed to support a wall entirely (that is, the beams run under the whole length of the wall), and the wall is more than sixteen or eighteen feet long, the whole weight of the wall should be taken as coming upon the beams ; for, if the beams should bend, the wall would settle, and might push out the supports, and thus cause the whole structure to fall. Framingr and Connecting Iron Beams. When beams are used to support walls, or as girders to carry floor-beams, they are often placed side by side, and should in such Fig. 8. Rg. 9. Fig. 10. Fig. 11. cases be furnished with cast-iron separators fitting between the flanges, so as to firmly combine the two beams. These separators "may be placed from four to six feet apart. Such an arrangement iB shown by Figs. 8 and 10, Figs. 9 and 11 showing fonus of sepa- ooo rnAJ»i:>ij ainu uuin w liu i ixn u ittuiM t5iSAM». rators usually employed; that with two bolt-boles being iimmI the 15-ineh and ]2i-inch beams, and that with a single hole smaller sizes. Fig. 12. Fig. 13. When beams are required to be framed together, it is usu done as shown by the accompanying cuts, in which Fig. 12 sli two beams of the same size fitted together. Fig. 13 shows a b fitted flush with the bottom flange of a beam of larger size. 14 shows a smaller beam fitted to the stem of a larger beam, al the lower flange. Fig. 14. Fig. 16. Wooden heanis may be secured to an iron girder in the si manner as an iron beam, by framing the end, and securing it b] ^-bracket; or an angle-iron may be riveted to the web of 3n eirder to afiford a flat bearine on which the wooden faeun i FRAMING AND CONNECTING IRON BEAMS. 367 The different rolling mills have standard connection? for con- necting iron beams with each other. The standard connection angles for all sizes and weights of steel and iron I-beams manufactured by Carnegie, Phipps & Co., Limited, are illustrated on page 3(58. These connections were designed on the basis of an allowable shearing strain of 10,00;) lbs. per square inch, and a bearing strain of v*(),000 lbs. per square inch on rivets or bolts, corresponding with extreme fibre strains in the I-beams of 16,000 and 12,00') lbs. per square inch, for steel and iron respectively. The number of rivets or bolts required was found to be dependent, in most instances, on their bearing values. The connections have been proportioned with a view to covering most cases occurring in ordinary practice, with the usual relations of depth of beam to length of span. In extreme instances, how- ever, where beams of short relative span lengths are loaded to their full capacity, it may be found necessary to make provision for additional strength in the connections. The limiting span lengths, at and above which the standard connection angles may be used with perfect safety, are given in the foUowing table : TABLE OP MINIMUM SPANS, FOR CARNEGIE I-BEAMS, WHERE STANDARD COxVNECTION ANGLES MAY BE SAFELY USED, WITH BEAMS LOADED TO THEIR FULL CAPACITY.

T7700DEN, AND STONE BEAMS — SOLID BUILT BEAMS Cast-iron Beams. — Most of our knowledge of the strength of oast-iron beams is denved from the experiments of Mr. Eaton Hodgkinson. From these experiments he found that the form of cross-section of a beam which will resist the greatest transverse strain is that shown in Fig. 1, in which the bottom flange con- tains six times as much metal as the top flange. When cast-iron be^ms are subjected to very light strains, the are^s of the two flanges ought to be nearly equal. As in practice;* it is usual to submit beams to strains less than the ultimate load, and yet beyond a slight strain, it is found, that when the flilnges are as 1 to 4, we have a proportion which approximates very nearly the requirements of practice. The thick- ness of the three parts — web, top flange, and bottom flange — may with advantage be made in proportion as 5, 6, and 8. If made in this proportion, the width of the top flange will be equal to one-third of that of the bottom flange. As the lesull of his experiments, Mr. Hodgkinson gives the following rul(» for the breaking-weight at the centre for a cast-iron beam of the above form :—- Fig 1 Breaking-load in tons = Area of hot. flange ^ depth ^ o 426 in square inches in ins. clear span in feet (1) Cast-iron beams should always be tested by a load equal to that which they are designed to carry.

RELATIVE STRENGTH OF BEAMS. 376 « ExAMPLV 1. — What load will a hard-pine beam, 8 inches by 18 inches, securely fastened into a brick wall at one end, sustain with safety, 6 feet out from the wall ? Ans. Safe load in pounds (Formula 2) equals 8 X 144 X 100 4x6 = 4,800 lbs. EXA.MPLE 2. — It is desired to suspend two loads of 10,000 pounds each, 4 feet from each end of an oak beam 20 feet long. What should be the size of the beam ? Ans. Assume depth of beam to be 14 inches ; then (Formula 13\ breadth .— ^ * — ==^ — = 11 inches, nearly ; therefore the beam should be 11 x 14 inches. Helative Streng:th of Rectang:iilar Beams. From an inspection of the foregoing forniulas, it will be found tliat the relative strength of rectangular beams in different cases is as follows : — Beam supported at both ends, and loaded with a uniformly distributed load 1 Beam supported at both ends, and loaded at the centre ... i Beam fixed at one end, and loaded with a uniformly distributed load . . . . ; \ Beam fixed at one end, and loaded at the other | Also the following can be shown to be true : — Beam firmly fixed at both ends, and loaded at the centre . . 1 Beam fixed at both ends, and loaded with distributed load . . li These facts are also true of a uniform beam of any form of cross- section.

In general, a beam slioulil have a bearing of four inches, though, if the beam be very short, the bearing may be less. Wv'ujUt of the Benin itHelf to be taken into Account. — The for- nuilas we have given for tlie strength of beams do not take into account the weight of the beam itself, and hence the safe load of tli(>. formulas includes both the external load and the weight of the material in the beam. In small wooden beams, the weight of th(i beam is generally so small, compared with the external load, that it need not be taken into account. But in larger wooden beams, and in metal and stone beams, the weight of the beam should be subtracted from the safe load if the load is distributed ; and if the load is applied at the centre, one-half the weight of the beam should be subtracted. The weight per cubic foot for different kinds of timber may be found in the table giving the Weight of Substances, Part III. Tables for the stren^li of yellow aud wliite pine» spruce, aud oak beauis, are given below, for beams one inoh wide. To find the strength of a given beam of any .other breadth, it is only necessary to multiply the strength given in the table by the breadth of the given beam Example. — What is the safe distributed load for a yellow-pine beam, supported at both ends, 8 inches by 12 inches, 20 feet clear span ? Alls. From Table II., safe load for one inch thickness is 1,440 pounds. 1,440 x 8 = 11,520 pounds, safe load for beam. Far a concentrated load at centre, divide these figures by 2. To find the size of a beam that will support a given load with a given span, find the safe load for a beam of an assumed depth .one inch wide, and divide the givcm load by this strength. KxAMPLK.— Wh.it size spruce beam will be required to carry a distributed load of S,64() pounds for a clear span of 18 feet ? Ann. From the table, we find that a beam 14 inches deep and 1 inch thick, 18 feet span, will support 1.524 pounds ; and diridiiig the load, 8.640 pounds, by 1.524, we have 5) for the breadth of the *t in inches : hence the V>eam should be 6 by 14 inohea, to oany ibuted load of 8,640 pounds with a span of 18 feei. *■■ STRENGTH OF HABD-PINE BEAMS. 311 GQ n 111 I n I 8 S) s a 03 I i •SI o C 'a 5 Si "Q o Jg 2 9i OQ $ OD «1 CO OC J5 1^ 0< IS t-t Ol 0» ^ rH rH of e* ^ o ^ rH O f- O 1-1 W TH K5 *> *k •» *> ^ ri T-i e< e< ot g s i § » «> f-i 11 e» e< Ol ^ s S^ s n iQ Q a o et OD -« rH tH T-l 01 kO OD Xi no o 09 Bi < ^5 r^ Ito ^ yf Id CO CO ^ lO t> I S I P § s i-H VI In 09 00 eo <M OD :0 00 s s s o» t- <?*. 00 eo -* OD 3 S QO g p « i-i" o» o» 00 -^ *o OB a s u > V c > o eS 09 O h3 X Xi © o rfS^ «o .-T i-T of of cc i >A CO ?

STIFFNESS AND DEFLECTION OF BEAMS. 383 CHAPTER XVI. STIFFNESS AND DEFLECTION OF B£AMS. In Chaps. XIV. and XV. we have considered the strength of beams to resist breaking only ; but in all first-class buildings it is desii-ed that those beams which show, or which support a ceiling, should not only have sufficient strength to carry the load with safety, but should do so without bending enough to present a bad appearance to the eye, or to crack the ceiling : hence, in calcu- lating the dimensions of such beams, we should not only calculate them with regard to their resistance to breaking, but also to bend- ing. Unfortunately, we have at present no method of combining the two calculations in one operation. A beam apportioned by the rules for strength will not bend so as to strain the fibres beyond their elastic limit, but will, in many cases, bend more than a due regard for appearance will justify. The amount which a beam bends under a given load is called its deflection, and its resistance to bending Is caUed its stiffness: hence the stiffness is inversely as the deflection. The rales for the stiffness of beams are derived from those for the deflection of beams; and the latter are derived partly from mathematical reasoning, and partly from experiments. We can find the deflection at the centre, of any beam not strained beyond the elastic limit, by the following formula: — _ load in lbs. X cube of span in inches X c Def. in inches - ^duius of elasticity X moment of inertia* ^^^ The values of c are as follows : — Beam supported at both ends, loaded at centre . .0.021 " " *' uniformly loaded . . 0.01:3 ** fixed at one end, loaded at the other .... O.-^Vi " ♦* *' unifonnly loaded .... 0.125 By wM^lgi"e the proper substitutions . in Formula 1, we derive the 384 STIFFNESS AND DEFLECTION OF BEAMS. following formnla for a rectangular beam ^supported at bath ends, and loaded at the centre : — . _ load X cabe of span X 1728 Def. in inches - 4 x breadth X cube of depth X E^ *^' the span being taken in feet. From this fommla the value of the modulus of elasticity, E, for different materials, has been circu- lated. Thus beams of known dimensions are supported at each end, and a known weight applied at the centre of the beam. The deflection of the beam is then carefully measured; and, substituting these known quantities in Formula 2, the value of £ is easily obtained. 1728 Formula 2 may be simplified somewhat by representing a^e ^ ■^, which gives us the formula WX L^ Def. in inches = j^ x I^x F^ ^^^ For a distributed load the deflection will be five-eighths of this. Note. — The constant i'^ correBponds to Hatfield's F, in Us Tnuisreiae Stimiiu. If we wish to find the load which shall cause a given deflection, we can transpose Formula 2 so that the load shall fdrm the left- hand member. Thus : — Load at centre _ 4 X breadth X cube of depth X def. in ins. X E in pounds ~ cube of span X 1728 ' * ' Now, that this formula may be of use in determining the load tb put upon a beam, the value of the deflection must in some way be fixed. This is generally done by making it a certain proportion of the span. Thus Tredgold and many other authorities say, that, if a flooi> beam deflects more than one-fortieth of an inch for every foot of span, it is liable to crack the ceiling on the under side; and henoe this is the limit which is generally given to the deflection of beams in first-class buildings. Then, if we substitute for ** deflection" the value, length in feet -r 40, in the above fornmla, we have, breadth X cube of depth X e Load at centre = ^^— ^ ,-^jj , (5) E letting e = p=^- y engineers and architects think that one-thiriieUk qfan inch )t of span is not too much to allow for the defleetton of floor STIFFNESS AND DEFLECTION OF BEAMS 385 beams, as a floor is seldom subjected to its full estimated load, and then only for a short time. If we adopt this ratio, we shall have as our constant for deflec- _ E tion, €i - J2900- In either of the above cases, it is evident that the values used for Ef F, e, or Ci, should be derived from tests on timbers of the same size and quahty as those to be used. It has only been within the last three or four years that we have had any accurate tests on the strength and elasticity of large timbers, although there had been several made on small pieces of various woods. The values of the vaiious constants for the fii*st three woods in the following table have been derived from tests made by Professor Lanza and his students at the Massachusetts Institute of Tech- nology, and the values for the other woods are about six-sevenths of the values derived from Mi*. Hatfield's experiments. The author believes tliat the values given in this table may be relied upon for timber such as is used in first-class construction. TABLE I.

Re-action of either end support, R,=R, = Uol; m Re-action of either central support, R^ = R, = \htol; (10) hence the re-actions of the end supports are one-fifth less, and of tlie central supports one-tenth more, than if the girder were not continuous. Strength of ContiuHous Girders, — Uviymg determined the re- action of the supports, we will now consider the strength of the girder. Tlu; strength of a beam depends upon the material and shape of the l)eain, jind upon the external conditions impose<l upon the beam. The latter j;ive rise to the bemling-moment of the beani, or tlu> amount by which the external forces (such as the load and supporting forces) tend to bend and break the beam. It is Ibis bonding-moment which causes the difference In the Ijoaring-strength of continuous and non-continuous girders of the same cross-section.

CONTINUOUS GIRDERS. 395 Hence, if we can determine the bending-moment of a beam under any conditions, we can easily determine the required dimensions of the beam from Formula 11. The greatest bending-moment for a continuous girder of two spans is almost always over the middle support, and is of the oppo- site kind to that which tends to break an ordinary beam. Distributed Load. — The greatest bending-moment in a continu- ous girder of two spans, / and /i , loaded with a unifonuly distributed load of w pounds per unit of length, is Bending-moment = o /# , > » (12) V/hen i = f , , or both spans are equal, Bendmg-moment = -g-, (12a) which is the same as the bending-moment of a beam supported at both ends, and uniformly loaded over its whole length: hence a continuous yirder of two tfpans uniformly loaded is no stronyer than if non-continuous. Concentrated Load, — The greatest bending-moment in a con- tinuous girder of two equal spans, each of length /, loaded with W pounds at centre of one span, and with W^ pounds at the centre of the other span, is Bending-monaent •=^ h^(W+Wx). (13) When W = W\^ov the two loads are equal, this becomes Bending-moment = ^WU (13a) or one-fourth less than what it would be were the beam cut at the middle support.

A deflection of i of an inch in a span of 10 feet is in the proportion of y?, of an inch per foot of span; and as the load is concentrated, and applied at the centre, we should use Fomiula 7, employing for e the value given in the fourth column, opposite yellow pine. Formula 7 gives the dimensions of the breadth, and to obtain it we must assume a value for the depth. For this we will first try b inches. Substituting in Formula 7, we have, 4250 X 100 Breadth = 512 x l'j7 ~ ^ inches, nearly. This would give us a beam 6 by 8 inches.

For cylindrical beams the same fonnulas may be employed as for rectangular beams, only, instead of #■, use 1.7 X e, : that is, a cylindrical beam bends 1.7 times as much as the circumscribing rectangle.

In almost every building of importance, it is necessary to employ girdtrs iisiing ui)on jiiers or columns placed from eight to fifteen feet ai)ari ; and in many cases gndcrs can conveniently bo ubtaiueil wliitli will span two and even three of the spaces l)etween the piera or columns. When this is tlie case, the question arises, whether it will be heller construction to use a long continuous girtler, or to have each ii:irdcr of only one span. Most aiehitects an? probably aware tliat a girder of two or more sj)aii> is sirougi'i and stifTer than a gn-der of the same section, of only one s])an. but just htnn much stronger and stiffer is a question they are unable to answer.

CONTINUOUS GIRDERS. 395 Hence, if we can determine the bencUng-moment of a beam under any conditions, we can easily determine tlie required dimensions of tlie beam from Formula 11. The greatest bending-moment for a continuous girder of two spans is almost always over the middle support, and is of the oppo- site kind to tliat which tends to break an ordinary beam. DiMtrlbuted Load. — The greatest l)ending-moment in a continu- ous girder of two spans, / and /, , loaded with a uniformly distributed load of w pounds per unit of length, is Bending-moment = o /^ ^ > » (12) V/hen Z = i I , or both spans are equal, top Bending-moment = -g-, (12a) which is the same as the bending-moment of a beam supported at both ends, and uniformly loaded over its whole length: hence a continuous girder of two ifpams uniformly loaded is no stromjer than if non-continuous.

Several Observations and Formulas for Designing: Continuous Girders. From the foregoing we can draw many observations and conclu- sions, which will be of great use in deciding whether it will be best in any gi\^n case to use a continuous or non-continuous girder. First as to the Su2)ports* — We see from the formulas given for the i*e-action of the supporting forces in the different cases, that in all cases the end supports do not have as much load brought upon them when the girder is continuous as when it is not; but of course the difference must be made up by the other supports. This might often be desirable In buildings where the girders run across the building, the ends resting on the side walls, and the girders being supported at intermediate points by columns or piers. In such a case, by using a continuous girder, part of the load could be taken from the walls, and transferred to the columns or piers. But there is another question to be considered in such a case, and that is vibration. Should the building be a mill or factory in which the girders had to support machines, then any vibration givea to the middle span of the beam would be carried to the side walls if the beam were continuous, while if separate girders were used, with their ends an inch or so apart, but little if any vibration would be can-ied to the side walls from the middle span. In all cases of important construction, the supporting forces should be carefully looked after. Strength, — As the relative strength of continuous and non- oontinuouB girders of the same size and span, and loaded in the •aoie wny, is as their bending-moments, we can easily calculate the .^9S CONTINUOUS GIRDERS. strongth of a continuous girder, knowing the formulas for its bend* ing-nioni(Mit. From the values given for the bending-nioments of the various cases considered, we see that the portion of the girder most strained is tliat which conies over the middle supports; also that, except in llie single case of a girder of two spans uniforndy loaded, tlie strength of a girder is greater if it is continuous than if it is not. But tlie gain in strength in some instances is not very great, altliough it is generally enough to pay for making the girder continuous. Stijrnc's^i. — The stiffness of a girder is indirectly proportional to its deflection; that is, the less the deflection under a given load, the stiffen the girder. Xow, from the values given for the deflection of continuous girders, we see that a girder is rendered very much stiffer by being made (continuous ; and this may be considered as the principal advantage in the use of such girders. It is often the case in building-construction, that it is necessary to usi^ beams of nmch greater strength than is required to carry the superimposed load, because the deflections would be too great if i\ui beam were made smaller. But, if we can use continuous girders, we may make the beams of just the size required for strength; as the deflections will be lessened by the fact of the gird- ers being (continuous. It should therefore be remembered, that, wh(>re great stiffness is required, continuous beams or girders should be used if possible. Foriuulas for Strciigtli and Stiffhess. For eonvenienee we will give the proper formulas for calculating the streni;tli and stiffness of continuous ginlers of rectangidar cross-s(»etion. The fonnulas for strength are deduced from the fornuda, Bending-moment = ;. * (22) where 1i is a (constant known as the modulus of rupture, and la ei^litecu times what is generally known as the co-efticicnl of stn'nijth.

For iron beams we may find the l)ending-inoinent by the for- mulas given, and, from tahles saving the sti-ength and sections of rolled beams, find the beam whose moment of inertia = bending-m oment X depth of beam 2000 •.vhen tli«* beuilinsj moment Is in foot pounds. For (^xjunphs we have a continuous l-lwam of three equal spans, loaded ovtM- each span, with 2(KM) pounds per foot, distributeil. Each span being 10 feet, then, from fonnula 14(r, we have 2(KX) X 100 Bemling-moment = rr^ = 20000. 2(XNK) Moment of inertia = ~:^^^ x depth of beam; 20,(XM) -^ 2(MM) = 10, and we must find a beam whose depth multl- plic 1 hy ten will c(jUJil its moment of inertia. If \\v try a ten-inch lK*am, we should have 10 X 10 = 100; and we sec from Tal)lcs, i)p. 2(50-272, that no ten-inch beam lias a moment of Inertia as small as KM): so we will take a nine-inch beam. W X 10 ~ INK and the lightest nine-inch beam has a moment of inertia of \Y,\: so we will use that beam. In tluj case of continuous I-i)eams of three e(|nal spans, (upially load(>d with a distributed ItKid. wi* may take four-fifths of the load on one siKin, and find the iron beam which would support that load if with only one span.

FLITCH PLATk GIRDEttS. 40 J CHAPTER XVITT. FLITCH PLATE GIRDERS. In framing large buildings, it often occurs that the floors must be supported upon girders, which themselves rest upon columns ; and it is required that the columns shall be spaced farther apart than would be allowable if wooden girders were used. In such cases the Flitch Plate girder may be iron flate used, oftentimes with advan- tage. A section and elevation of a Flitch Plate girder is shown in Fig. 1. Fig. 1. The different pieces are bolted together every two feet by three- fouiths-inch bolts, as shown in elevation. It has been found by practice that the thickness of the iron plate should be about one- twelfth of the whole thickness of the beam, or the thickness of the wood should be eleven times the thickness of the iron. As the elas- ticity of iron is so much greater than that of wood, we must propor- tion the load on the wood so that it shall bend the same amount as the iron plate: otherwise the whole strain might be thrown on the iron plate. The modulus of elasticity of wrought-iron is about thir- teen times that of hard pine; or a beam of hard pine one inch wide would bend thirteen times as much as a plate of iron of the same size under the same load. Hence, if we want the hard-pine beam to bend the same as the iron plate, we must put only one-thirteenth as much load on it. If the wooden beam is eleven times as thick as the iron one, we should put eleven-thirteenths of its safe load on it, or, what amounts to the same tiling, use a constant only eleven- thirteenths of the strength of the wood. On this basis the follow- ing formulas have been made up for the strength of Flit(;h Plate girders/ in which the thickness of the iron is one-twelfth of the braidth oi the beam, approximately : — 40-2 FLITCH PLATE GlRDEES. Let 1) = Depth of beam. B = Total thickness of wood. L = Clear span in feet. i = Thickness of iron plate. f __ i 1^^> pounds for hard pine. f 7o pountls for spruce. W = Total load on girder. Then y for beams supported at both ends, Saf<» load at centre, in pounds = j- (/B-\-*JnOt), (11 22)2 Safe distributed load, in pounds = —f— (/B + 7500. (21 For distributed load, D = \/ 2/7i-f Kiitbt ' I irZ For load at centre D = \/ >^"j_7^' (3) (4) As an example of the use of this kind of girder, we will take tl«(* case of a railway-station in which the second story is devoted to offices, and where we must use girders to support the second floor, of twonty-liyc feet span, and not less than twelve feet on centres. If we can avoid it. This would give us a floor area to be supported by the girder of 12 X 25 = :300 square feet; and, allowing 105 i>ounds p«T s()iiare foot as the weight of the suiKjrimposed load and of the floor itself, we have ol,r>00 pounds as the load to be supported by the ginlcr. Now we find, by computation, that if we were to us«» a M)li(l girder of hard pine, it would re<iuirea8eventeen-lncli by four- teen-inch beam. If we were to use an iron Ix'ani, we find tliat a fifteen-inch ln^iivy iron beam would not have the requisiti^ strength for this span, and that we should be obliged to use twotwelve-4nch beams. We will now see what size of Flitch Plate ginler we would recpiire, sliould we decide to use such a girder. We will assume tlie total breadth of both beams to be twelve inches, so that we can use two six -inch tind)ers, whi<'h we will have hanl pine. The thick- ness of the iron will he one inch and one-eighth. Then, substi- tuting in Formula JJ, wt* have. / :{!.')( M) X 25 . — ^' = V- X KM) X 12 + I;V)T7^rHt = VIW, or 14 inches. Hence we sliall require a twelve-inc4i by fourteen-incb girder. NoVt FLITCH-PLATE GIRDERS. 40;^ for a comparison of the cost of the three girders we have considered in this example. The seventeen-inch by fourteen-inch hard-pine girder would contain 515 feet, board measure, which, at five cents a foot, would amount to $25.75. Two twelve-inch iron beams 25 feet 8 inches long will weigh 2083 pounds; and, at four cents a pound, they would cost $83.82. The Flitch-Plate girder would contain 364 feet, board measure, which would cost $18.20. The iron plate would weigh 1312i poimds, which would cost $52.50; making the total cost of the girder $70.70, or $13 less than the iron beams, and $45 more than the solid hard-pine beams. Flitch-Plate beams also possess the advantage that the wood almost entirely protects the iron; so that, in case of a fire, the heat would not probably affect the iron until the wooden beams were badly burned. 404 TRUSSED BEAMS. CHAPTER XIX. TRUSSED BEAMS. AVhexkveti wo. wish to support a floor upon ginlers having a span of more than thirty feet, we must use eitlier a trussed ginler, a riveted iron-phite fjinU^r, or two or more iron beams. The clieap- esi and most convenient way is, probably, lo use a large woo<leu girder, and truss it, either as in P'igs. 1 and 2, or Figs. JJ ami 4. In all these forms, it is desirable to give the girders as much <!epth as the conditions of the case will permit; as, the deei)er the ginler, the less strain there is in the pieces. In the belly-rod truss we either have two beams, and one rod which runs up between them at the ends, or three beams, and two rods runnini^ up between the beams in the same way. The beams should be in one continuous length for the whole span of the ginler, if they can be obtained that length.

Examples. — To illustrate the method of computing the dimen- sions of the different parts of girders of this kind, we will take two examples. 1. — Computation for a (jlrder snch as is shown in Fig. 7, for a span of 30 feet, the truss to be 12 feet on centres, and carrying a floor for which we should allow 100 pounds pi^r sc^uare foot. The girder will consist of three strut-beams and two rods. We van allow the belly-rod T to come two feet below the beams B, and we will assume that the depth of the beams B will be 12 inches; then the length of C (which is measured from the centre of the beam) would be 80 Inches. The length of B would, of course, be 15 feet, and by computation, or by scaling, we find the length of T to be 15 feet 2i inches. 408 TRUSSED BEAMS. The total load on the girder equals the span multiplied by the distance of girdei*s on centres, times 100 pounds = 90 X 12 X 100 = 3(KX)0 pounds. Then we find, from Fonnula 1, Tension in nxl = f», of 30000 X g^V"^^ = 65664 pounds; and, from Fornuda 20, /6y064 Diameter of each rod = x/jM^g = Ij inches, nearly. The striit-heams we will make of spruce. Tlie compression in the two strut-beams = i% of 36000 X '/,P = 64800 pounds, or 21600 pounds for each strut. To resist this compression would require 21600 -^g^ , or 27 square inches of cross-section, which corresponds to a beam 2^ inches by 12 inches. The load on B = i of 36000. or 18000 pounds; and, as there are three beams, this gives but 6000 pounds' load on each beam. Then, from Formula 22, 6000 X 1.5 _ . ^ . 1^ ^ ~ 2 X 144 X 70 " • incbea^ and, adding to this the 2} inches already obtained for compression, we have for the strut-beams three 65-inch by 12-incli spruce beams. The load on C= ^ Fl', or 22500 pounds. If we are to bave a num- ber of trusses all alike, it would be well to have a strut of cast-iron; but, if we are to build but one, we might make the strut of oak. If 22500 of cast-iron, the strut should have ^.w^q , or 1.8 square inches of cross-section at its smallest section, or al)out 1 inch by 2 inches. If 22500 of oak, IL would require a section equal to "Tqqq • or 22i square inohos, = 4^ inches by 5 inches, at its smallest section. Thus we hav(> found, thai for our truss we shall require three stmt-l)eanis 7 inclu's by 12 inches (of spruce), about 31 feet long, two belly-rods U inches diameter, and a cast-iron strut 1 inch by 2 inches at the smallest end, or else an oak strut 4i inches by 5 inches. 2. — It is desired to support a floor over a lecture-room forty feet wide, by means of a trussed girder; and, as the room above is to be used foi- electrical i)uri>oscs, it is desiretl to have a truss with very little iron in it, and hence we use a truss such as is shown in Fig. 4. re the girders rest on the wall, there will be brick pilasters g a projection of six inches, which will make the span of the 10 feet ; ^nd we will space the rods /if /^ so as to diTldeUieUe- into thi-ee equal spans of 13 feet each. The tie-taun will •TUUSSED BEAMS 409 consist of two hard-pine beams, with the struts cominjGf between them. We will have two rods, instead of one, at i?, coming down each side of the strut, and passing through an iron casting below the hoanis, forming supports for them. The height of truss from centre to centre of timbers we must limit to 18 inches, and we will s})ace the trusses S feet on centres. Then the total floor-area sup- ported by one girder equals 8 feet by 89 feet, equal to .*U2 square feet. Tin; heaviest load to which the floor will be subjected wiii be the weight of students, for which V) pounds per square foot will be ample allowance; and the weight of the flooi* itself will be about 25 pounds; so that the total weight of the floor and load will be UK) pounds per square foot. This makes the total weight liable to come on one girder 81,200 pounds. Then we find, Formula 14, 157 ins. Compression in struts = 0.;^>7 W x .o. ,., = 106800 pounds. 156 ins. Tension in both tie-l)eams = 0.867 ir X ^^ .^^.^ = 106000 pounds. Tension in both rods i? = 0.807 W = 1 1450 pounds. The timber in the tniss wdl l>e hard pine, and hence we must have 10(>8(X) —TTwTTT-, or 107 square inches, area of cross-section m the strut, which is equivalent to a 9-inch by 12-inch timl)er . or, as that is not a merchantable size, we will use a 10-inch by 12-inch strut. The tie-beams will each have to carry one-half of 106000, or 58000 5800()__ pounds ; and the area of cross-section to resist this equals ^j^ — 27 inches, or 2^ inches by 12 inches. The distributed load on one section of each tie-beam coming from the floor-joist equals i:J X 8 X 100 = 10400 pounds; and from Formula 28 wo have ^ = ^ 7T. 7 = ^ — ^Mj ^/w> = 3? inches. Then the breadth 5 X JJ- X A 5x 144x 100 of each tie-beam must be 84^ inches + 21 inches = 6 inclies : hence the tie-beams will be 6 inches by 12 inches. Kach rod will have to /57/i5 ^..^ = } inch, nearly. Thus we have found, for the dimensions of the various pieces of the girder: — Two tie-beams 6 inches by 12 inches; two rods at each joint, J inch diameter i and strut-pieces 10 inches by 12 inches. A\0 BIVETEU PLATKIHON GIKDKHS. CHAPTER XX. RIVETED PLATE-IRON GIRDZSR8, Whenever the load upon a girder or the span is too great to admit of using an iron beam, aiul the use of a tmssed wooden girder is impi-acticable, we must employ a riveted iron-plate girder. Ginlers of this kind are quito commonly used at the present day ; as they can easily be made of any strength, and adapted to any span. They are not generally used in buildings for a greater span than sixty feet. These girders are usually made either like Fig. i tlWW n'A'AMyVitf.wj Fig. 2. or Fig. 2, in section, with vertical stiifeners riyeted to the web- plates (»very few feet along their length. The vertical plates, called '' web-plates/" are made of a single plate of wronght-iron, rarely less than ont^-fourth, or more than five-eighths, of an inch thick, and geiKM-aliy tliive-i>ightlis of an inch thick. Under a distributed load, the web of three-eighths of an inch thick is generally snfll- ciently sti-ong to resist tlu^ shearing-stress Ln the girder without ng, provided that two vertical pieces of angle-lroD ; r ivebed >^eb, near each end of the girder. Tliese ve ii i !«■ of >n or T-iron, whichever is used, are c "; ten the girder is loaded at the centre, ana : • If K4":- . RIVETED PLATE-IRON GIRDERS. 411 under a distributed load, it is necessary to use the stiffeners for tlie whole length of the girder, placing them a distance apart equal to the height of the girder. The web is only assumed to resist the shearing-stress in the girder. The top and bottom plates of tlie girder, wliich have to be proportioned to the loads, span, and lieiglit, are fastened to the web by means of angle-irons. It has been found, that in nearly all cases the best proportions for the angle-irons is :i indies by 3 inches by .J inch, which gives the sectional area of two angles five and a half square inches. The two angles and the plate taken together form the flange; the upper ones being called the '* upper flange," and the lower ones the ** lower flange." RiVKTs. — The rivets with which the plates and angle-irons are joined together should ho, three-fourths of an inch in diameter, unless the girder is light, when five-eighths of an inch may l)e sutti- cient. The spacing ought not to exceed six inciies, and should be closer for heavy flanges : and in all cases It should not be more than three inches for a distance of eighteen inches or two feet from the end. Rivets should also not be spaced closer than two and a half times their diameter. Rules for the Strength of Riveted Girders. In calculating the strength of a riveted girder, it is customary to consider that the flanges resist the transverse strain In the girder, and that the web resists the shearing-strain. To calculate the strength of a riveted girder very accurately, we should allow for tilt* rivet-holes in the flanges and angle-irons ; but we can com- pute the strength of the girder with sufficient accuracy by taking the strength of the iron at ten thousand pounds per square inch, instead of twelve thousand pounds, which is used for rolled beams, and disregardnig the rivet-holes. Proceeding on this consideration, we have the following rule for the strength of the girder : — 10 X area of one flange x height Safe load in tons = :] x span in feet ' ^ ^ ) Area of one flange I _ 3 x load X span in f eet in square inches ) 10 X height of web in inches' ' The height of the girder is measured in inches, and is the height of the web-plate, or the distance between the flange-plates. The w(^b we may make either one-lialf or three-eighths of an inch thick ; anil, if the girder is loaded with a concentrated load at llie centre or any other point, we should use vertical stiffeners the whole length of the girder, spaced the height of the girder apart. 412 RIVETED PLATE-IRON GIRDERS. If the load is distribvted^ divide one-fourth of the whole load on the girder, in tons, by the vertical sectional area of the web-plate: and if the quotient thus obtained exceeds the figure given in the following table, under the number nearest that wlifcli wouhl 1.4 X height of ginler bo obtained by the following expression, " thickness of wci7 ' then stiffening pieces will l)e required up to within one-eighth of tho span from the middle of the girder. c/ X 1 .4 t 31) 3.08 35 2.84 40 2.61 45 2.39 50 2.18 55 1.99 60 1.82 65 1.60 70 1.52 75 1.40 80 1.28 85 1.17 90 1.08 9;) 1.00 100 0.92 Example. —A brick wall 20 feet in length, and weighing 40 tons, is to be supported by a riveted plate-girtler with one web. Tho girder will be <24 inches high. What should be the area of each flange, and the thickness of the web ? 3 X 40 X 20 4ns. Area of one flange = — m x 2^ ~ ^^ square inches. Subticicting 5 squai*e inches for the area of two 8-inch by 8-inch angle-irons, we have 5 s(iuare inches as the area of the plate. If we make tho plate 8 inches wide, then it slK>uId be5-r8,orfofan Inch thick. The web we will make J of an inch thick, and put two stiffonors at each end of the girder. To find if it will be necessary to use more stiffeners, wo divide J of 40 tons, equal to 10 tons, by the area of the vortical section of the web, which eqimls f of an inch X 24 inches = sciuaro inches, and we obtain 1.11.

Girders intended to carry plastering should be limited in depth (out to out of web) to one-twenty-fourth of the span-length, or half an inrh per foot of span: otherwise the deflection is liable to eau<e the plastering to crack. In heavy girders, a saving of iron may often i)e made by nMlucing the thickness of the flanges towanls the ends of th(^ i^irder, where t\w strain is h'ss. The bendinir- moment at a number of points in the length of the girder may Ix' detJMiiiined, and the area of the flange at the different i)oints nia<h' propoilional to the bending-moments at those points. The thick- ness of the llanges is easily varied, as required by forming them of a sutticiiMit numlu'r of plates to give the greatest thickness, and allowing them to extend on each side of the centre, only to such distanc'es as may be nt'cessary to give the required thi<:kness at each point. The deflection of girders so formed will be greater than those of uniform cross-sectiou throughout. TABLES OF SAVE LOADS FOR RIVETED PLATE- IROX GIRDERS. The tables given on pp. 414 and 415 have I)een computed ac- cording to the fonnula on p. 411, to give an idea of the siz«* of girder that will be reiiuired for a given load, of the heights and siKin^ inlieiited.

An economical style of box girder, well adapted for short span lengths, is one composed of a pair of I-beams with top and bottom flange plates. Such girders are commonly used for supporting interior walls in buildings. The following tables give the safe loads for ** Carnegie " beams, with different thicknesses of plates. They were prepared for steel girders on account of the advantages possessed by steel beams over beams of iron. The former are more economical of section and permit the use of a higher unit strain than the latter. The values given in the tables are founded upon the moments of inertia of the various sections. Deductions were made fgr the rivet holes in both flanges. The maximum strain in extreme fibres was limited to 13,000 lbs. per square inch, while in the tables on- rolled steel beams a fibre strain of 16,000 lbs. was used. This reduction was made in order to amply compensate for the deterioration of the metal around the rivet holes from punching. Box girders should not be used in damp or exposed places, since the interior surfaces do not readily admit of repainting. ExajIPle. — A 13' brick wall, lo feet high, is to be built over an opening of 24 feet. What will be the section of the girder re- quired ? Ans. — Assuming 25 feet as the distance, centre to centre of bearings, the weight of the wall will be 25 x 15 x 121 = 45,375 lbs., or 22.68 tons. On page 420 we find that a girder composed of two 12" steel beams, each weighing 32.0 lbs. per foot, and two 14" x i" flange plates will carry safely, for a span of 25 feet, a uniformly dis- tributed load of 23.23 tons, including its own weight. Deducting the latter, 1.42 tons, given in tho next column, we find 21.81 tons for the value of the safe net load, which is 1 . 07 tons less than re- quired. From the following column we find that by increasing the thickness of the flange plates ,^j" we may add 1.52 tons to the allowable load. This will more than cover the difference. Hence the required section will be two 12" steel beams 32.0 lbs. per foot, and two 14 ' x ■^%" steel cover plates. 27 418 bterl beam qibderb. stki':l beam girdbbb. safe loads in tons, uniformlt disnubhtbel S-X" eti.«l (Caiiiogle) I-beama and 3 aleel platw 18" x J" it liii" lit in.'iu lb*, prraq. !■.

A cast-iron arch-girder is considered as a long column, subject to a certain amount of bending-strain ; and the resistance will be governed by the laws affecting the strength of beams, as well as by those relating to the strength of columns. Fig. 3. If we regard the arch as flexible, or as possessing no inherent stiffness, and the rod as a chord without weight, we can deduce the following formula for the horizontal thrust or strain : — Hor. thnist _ ^^^^ P^^ ^^^^ ^^ span x span in feet, squared^ or strain "" 8 x rise of girder in feet ^ ' From this rule we can calculate the required diameter of the tension-rod, which may be expressed thus : — Diameter in inches Vloail on girder X span in feet 8 X rise in feet X 7854 (2) The rule generally used, however, in proportioning the wrought- iron tie to the cast-iron arch is to alloiv one square inch of crosa- section of tie-rod for every ten net ton.^i of load impoaed upon the span of the arch.

WOODEN FLOORS. 425 CHAPTER XXII STRENGTH AND STIFFNESS OF WOODEN FLOORS Strengrtli of Floors. — In calculating the strength of floor- beams, the first thing to be decided is the span of the beams, which is generally determined by the size of the opening to be covered ; and the second is the load which is to come ui)on the floor. Wooden floor-beams should not have a span of more than twenty- five feet (if it can be so arranged ) : for, if they are of a greater length than this, it is difficult to stiffen them sufficiently to prevent vibra- tion under a heavy or moving load When the distance between the l)earing- walls of a building is greater than the above limit, par- tition-walls should be built, or else the beams should be supported by iron or wooden girders resting upon iron or wooden columns. The Building Laws of the cities of New York and Boston require that m all buildings more than thirty feet in width, except churches, theatres, schoolhouses, car-stables, and other public buildings, the space between any two of the bearing- walls shall not be over twenty- five feet, unless ginlers are substituted in place of the partition- wall. Floor-beams, when supported at three or more points, should always be made continuous if possible, as the strength of each portion of the beam is thereby greatly increased. Superimposed Loads. — There is some difference of opinion among authorities as to what should be allowed for thc^ suprrim posed load upon the floor of a dwelling or upon the floors of public buildings. The New- York Building Law requires that in all build- ings every floor shall have sufficient strength to bear safely upon every superficial fool of its surface seventy-five pounds, and, if used as a place of public assembly, one hundred and tvv«^nty pounds. In dwelling-houses, where the maximum load consists of nothing but ordinary furniture and the weight of some ten or twelve people, it is not necessary to allow more than forty pounds per square foot for the superficial load ; and, in most cases, eighty pounds per s(|uare foot 18 ample allowance for the weight of an assemblage of peopl(^ Only in cases where people are liable to be jammed together during 426 WOODEN FLOORS. a jMinio or some unusual circumstance, is it possible to p;pt a weight on the tl<«>r of one humlriMl ami twenty pounds per Rr{uarp fool. Tlu' follt)\vin^ tablt* iiivcs tlie weight per squaiv foot which shouM l»e assume* I, in addition Lo the wciglit of tlir floor, for thcso various cases : — For stHM't l^ridges for general public traffic, S*t lbs. per s<{uarp foot.

Rules for the Strength of Floor-beams. — In consid- ering the strength of a floor, we assume it to be equally loaded over its whole surface, as this would be the severest strain to which the timbers could be subjected. Hence, in calculating the dimensions of the floor beams, we use the formula for a distributed load. That formula i^ for rectangular beams, 2 X bread th x depth squared X A Safe load - span in feet x S ^^^ *S being the factor of safety. For floor-beams the safe load is represented by the superimposed load and weight of floor supported by each beam. The areA of floor supported by each beam equals the length of beam multiplied by the distance between centres. If we. let f de- note the weight of the superimposed load per square foot of floor surface, and/' the weight of one square foot of the floor itself, then the total weight per square foot will be (/+/') pounds, and the total load on each beam will ecjual Length of beam X distance between centres x (/4-/'). Now, if we substitute this expression in place of the safe load in the above formula, and solve for the depth, we shall have, Square of __ S x dist. bet, cen tres x length squared x (/ + /') depth. - 2 x~ bread thlT^ ' ^^^ or, if we solve for the distance between centres, we shall have, Distance between _ 2 x breadth x depth squared x A centres in feet - ^sVlength"^ared x (/ + /') ° ^^ N.

The values of the constant A for the four woods in general use are as follows : / Spruce 210 Eard pme 300 Oak 225 White pine 180 Formulas 3 and 8 apply to all floors supported by rectangular beams, whatever be the factor of safety employed, the weight of > Until very recently It has been our custom to use factors of safety twice as great as these : bat, as we have had occasion to reduce the constants for strength to abont one-half of that formerly used, we have reduced the lactors of safety ■ecofdins^y.

The method of bridging shown in Fig. 1, and known as "cross-bridging," is considered to be by far the l>est, as it allows the thrust to act parallel to the axis of the strut, and not across the grain, as must be the case where single pieces of board are used. The bridging should be of li-inch by 3-inch stock. Carriage-beams, Headers, and Tail-beams.— Fig. 2 represents the plan of the timbera of a floor, liaving a stairway opening on each side. The short beams, as KL, are called the ** tail-beams : " the beams jEF and O//, which support the tail- beams, are called the ** headers : " and the beams AB and ('D, the "carriage-beams," or "trimmers." The tail-beams are calculated in the same way as ordinary floor- joist; but it is evident that the headers and trimmers will require separate computations. It would be very difficult to give formulas that would serve for '•.vei'y case of trimmers and headers ; and the best way in any case is to find the load which the trimmer has to carry, and then, from the formulas already given, determine the required dimensions. In a floor such as is represented in Fig. 2, it is evident that the floor- area supported by EF or Gil = y X ^n. Multiplying this area by (f'\-f), we should have the load which each header would be required to support ; and then, by Formula 9, Chap. XV., we could determine its necessary dimensions. As the headers are wcakene.l by the tail-beams being mortised into them, a certain allowance should be made for mortising in calculating the dimensions, in ordinary cases it would probably be enough to make the breadth from one to two inches more than the calculated dimensions. 4:VJ WOODEN FLOORS The tritnmerft, A B and C'/A have to support one-lialf of the load rarrit'd l»y KF plus one-half the load carried by ^»7/, and also one' half ot tin* load su])p<)ried by the ordinary joist.

The headers are also generally bolted to the trimmer, as shown in the same figure; so that the trimmers shall not spread, and let the headers fall. Joist Hangers. — On page 437/ are shown two styles of patented joist hangers, which are intended to take the place of the stirrup iron, at less cost. . Oirders. — Formulas 2 and 3 will also apply to wooden girders supporting the floor-joist, neglecting the weight of the girder itself. In this case the distance between centres would, of course, mean the distance between the centres of the girders. The application of thijse formulas to girders being the same as for the floor-joist, it seeujB hardly necessary to illustrate by examples. • Solid or Mill Floors. By Solid or Mill Floors we mean a floor constructed of large beaniS spaced about eight feet on centres, and covered with plank of suitable thickness, and this, again, covered with maple or hard- plue flooring as desired. Such floors will be found fully described in Chap. XXIV. For calculating the large timbers, the best method is to compute the greatest load that the beam is ever liable to carry, and then determine the necessary size of timber by means of the proper formula, which may be found in Chap. XV. ; or if the beams are spaced a regular distance apart, and have only a uniformly dis- tributed load to carry, they may be computed by Formulas 2 and 3, given above. The floor-plank may be computed for their strength by the fol- lowing tonnula, supposing the load to be unifoi*mly distributed:^ V weight per square foot x X'^ x. 8 — ' yT x~l ' ^ ^ ^ They would, however, bend too much, when proportioned by this fommla, for use in mills, and in buildings where the under side of the plank must be plastered. For such buildings the thickness of the plank should be propor- tioned by the formula for stiffn(>ss, which is, 434 WOODEN FLOORS.

Floors in first-class buildings should possess something more than mere strength to resist fracture : they should have sufficient stiff- ness to prevent the floor from bending, under any load, enough to cause the ceiling to crack, or to present a bad appearance to the eye. To obtain this desired quality in floors, it is necessary to cal- colate the requisite dimensions of the beams by the formulas for nttffniyft ; and, if. the dimensions obtained are larger than those £j.. i'M) WOODKN KIXK)US. obtained by the. formulas for strength, they should be adopted, instead of those obtained by the hitter fonnulas. The only way in which we can b(^ sun^ tliat a beam is botli stronj^ <'non«^h and stiff enou^li to bear a ^iveii load is to calculate the re<]ulred dimen- sions liy both tlie formula for streni^th and th;* fornuda for stiff n»'ss, and take the lari^iM* dimensions obtained.

XVI., giv(?s the load which a given Ix'iun will carry without dellecting more than one-fortieth or one-thiilieth of an inch per foot of sj)an, according to tlu^ vahu^ of e which we use. Kornuda II, Chap. XVI., gives thii dimensions of the beam to carry a given load under the same conditions. In the cas«' of tloor-lx'ams, the load is given, and is represented, as wc saw under tin* Sfrcntfth of Flttors, by the expression. Distance between centres in feet X length in feet X ( /'+/'). Tlicn, if we substituti^ this expression in place of the load in Kormula 11, (hap.

Performing the operation, we have, ^ . ^ 5 X li X 15» X (40 + 20) Breadth = s X W x lOO =1.0^ inches. This gives us about the same dimensions that we obtained when considering the beam in regard to its strength only : hence a Ix^am two by ten inches would fulfil both the conditions of strength and stiffness. In the case of headers, stringers, etc., where the joist has to carry not only a distributed load, but also one or more concentrateci loads applied at different points of the beam, the required dimensions can best be obtained by considering the beam to be made up of a number of pieces of the same dei)th, placed side by side, and {;om- t)uting the required bre^adth of beams of that depth to carry each of the loads- singly, and then taking the sum of the breadths for the breadth required. The formula for stiffness of plank-floors has already been given on p. 484. Dimensions of Joists and Girders for Different Loads and Spans. To enable an architect to tell at a glance the size of joists and girders required for the ordinary classes of buildings, the author has computed the following tables, which give the dimensions required for spans from 10 to 24 feet for joists, and also the maxi- mum distance that the joists should bo sjmced on centers. Dimen- sions for girders are given for different spans and spacings. The beams and girdera in the first three classes were comjmted from the tables on pages 888, 389, and 390, and in class I) from the tables on pages 377 and 379. The application of the tables will doubtless be (wident to all. When the girders are not s[)Mce(l uniformly, or then^ is only one row of girders, take the width of flcK)r area supported by the girder, for the distance apart. In several cases two sizes an^ given, both of which have sufflcient strength, although one contains less lumber than the other. In most oases the deeper b(»am has a little excess of strength, but for convenience the shallower beam might be preferred. 437^ WOODKN FLOORS.

Arrangements of this kind are also used to connect the trimmer-beams of hatch' ways, jambs, and stairways.^ P ][ Fi... \///m Fig. 6. The wall ends of the joists and girders should be provided with nhoes or beariny plates of iron or stone, as the brickwork is ant to crush under the ends of beams, unless the load is di^tribjuted by this means over a sufficient surface. Anchor-Htrapa should be bolted to the end of each r/irder and to the wall end of every alternate joist, binding the walls firmly from falling outwards in the event of fire or other accident. Several simple modes of anchorage are shown in Figs. 3, 4, and 5. When one beam docs not give sufficient strength for a girder, it is customary to bolt tosjcther two or more with cast separators between them, as shown in Fig. 6. *■ The details of the coiiuectioDs aud framing of iron beams kre more clearly shown on pp. 366, 366.

The weight of n brick arch with cement filling is about seventy pounds per superficial foot of floor. Experience has shown that such a floor cannot be considered as fire-proof unless the lower flanges of the beam are protected by porous terra-cotta, fire-clay tile, or wire lathing, kept an inch away from the beam. Brick floor arches are largely going out of use, owing to the fact that a fire-proof floor may be more cheaply constructed of other material. Hollow Porous Terra-cotta and Hollow Dense Terra-cotta Floors.— For convenience, these materials will be referred to as Porous Tiling and Dense Tiling. A description of the materials, their nature and manufacture, will be found in Chapter XXV. They consist principally of clay, which is manu- factured into hollow blocks, generally with angles on side or ends, according to whether the arches of the floors are to be of end- method design or side method design. In some instances, to a limited extent, rectangular blocks have been successfully used, but this shape is not approved. The general practice in flat con- struction is to make bevel joints — radius joints are seldom used ; the best workmanship) and best results are found to be obtained with a bevel joint of about one inch to the foot. There are two general schemes of flat construction : one in which the tile blocks abut end to end continuously between the beams, and one in which they lie side by side, with broken joints, between the beams. In the end systems, it is not the practice to have the blocks in one row break joints with those in another, as it entails extra expense in setting. When this is done, however, the substantialness of the floors is increased. In some forms of flat construction a side-method skewback (or abutment) is used, with end-to-end interiors and keys, or end-tOr end interiors and side-method keys. Experience has shown that in the side method of flat construction the skewback, or abutment, was the weakest — in case of failure, sometimes collapsing, but gen- erally shearing off at the beam flange ; consequently, the side- method skewback is not approved in the end- method construction unless provided with partitions runninc^ at ris^ht anoflos to the beam. Keys should be end to end, or solid. The latter, when made very small, are preferable. A practice which has become somewhat general, especially In the East, is for the owner or general cqntractQr tp buy tjles, and the tnasofi ^{itraoter on the job to build them in plaee in the building. FIBE-FROOF FLOORS. 443 beams, and like centrepieces above, crosdng the beams. The ptanka on whieh tiles arc laid shfiuld be two-inch, dressed on one ode to uniform thickness, and should lie on lower centres, at right Angles to beams anil placed close together. J'he soffit tlto should be a separate key-shaped pieue. oC ei[iial width of beam, and laid directly under tbe beam on the planking, aftor whicb the eontring is tightened by screwing down tlii) nuts on the T-boits, until the sofflt tile are hard against the beams and the planking has a crowa ' not esc«&diag one-fourth oC an inch in spans of sis feet. This sys- tem gives what is very essential— a lirin and steady centre on which to construct the flat tile worlt. The tiles should be '■ shoved" in jilace with close joinb'. and keys should fit close. The centres should remain £n)m twelve to tliirty-six iiours, according to condi- tions of ireather, depth of tiling, and moj'tar used. When centres are "struck," the ceiling should be straight, even, free from open joints, creTices. and cracks, ready to receive the plastering. Figs. til 12 show types of flat constructions in use. Different tfianufacturers have various modifications of these. Pig. 9 is the most general design for dense tiling, although porous tiling, very similar in design, may be had from some manufacturers. The end- method design is preforahlo, however, for porous tiling. Fig. 10 is a light-weight dense-tile design, nol so gvinerally useil as fonncrjy. Figs. It and lli show the simplest end-methnd design for porous tiling, which has become known as iho ■'Leo end-method areh." It was first brought into general use by Mr. Thotnas A. I.ee, now of New York City. It was used by him in the tests conducted at Denver in Dceember, t"S(}, by Messrs. Andrews, Jaques & Ran- toul, architects In those tests the design ^ihowod superiority over the Dtberdesigns. It has the advantage of simplicity and economy, both Id mannfaoturo and construction. Tbe manufacttirer can FIRE PROOF FLOORS. 445 reduced and the stability of construction mcreased.- The reduo- tkm in price of all tiling makes the cost rather in favor of increas- ing the thickness of tiling and reducing the thickness of concrete. Among the advantages possessed by hollow tiles in their ap[)lica- bion to fire-proof floors, between steel or iron beams, are these : They are absolutely incombustible, because made of clay and laving withstood a white heat in the course of manufacture. They are sound-proof, from fact of being hollow. They are superior to any concrete material used for the same pur- jose, owing to their being free from shrinkage, thereby avoiding ihe unsightly cracks often seen in ceilings laid with concrete blocks. They are proof against rats and vermin. Floors made of them are forty per cent, lighter than by the old system of segmental solid brick arches levelled with concrete. They offer a flat surface on the bottom and top after being laid, Fig. 16.—** Austria " Arch, Patented by Pr. von Emperoer. ihereby giving a flat ceiling ready for plastering, and a flat founda- :ion for the floor strips. The flat arches should in all cases be capable of sustaining, with- )ut injurious deflection, after being set in place, an equally distrib- ited load of 500 pounds upon each superficial foot of surface. In laying the tile, a mortar composed of lime mixed up with joarse screened sand, in proportions of four to one, and richly tom- 3ered with hydraulic cement, should be used. This makes a strong nortar, and works well with the tile. In no case should a joint jxceeding one-half inch in thickness be permitted The laying of flat construction in winter weather without roof protection should not bo practised in climates where frequent tevere rain and snow storms are followed by hard freezing- jind ;h!iwii)g, as tho mortar joints arc liable to be weakened or ruptured, 'esulting in more or less deflection of the arches. The upper su rface of these arches is generally covered withcon- jrete of a sufficient depth to allow for bedding in it the wooden (trips to which the floor board-; are nailed. The concrete can be nade of light and cheap materials, such as lime or native cement knd clean rolling-mill cinders, coke screenings, broken flre-proo€ 14(5 FIRE-F»RO()F FLOORS. tiling, etc. The floor strips should be of sound and seasoned wood, 2 inches thi(»k by 2 inches wide on top. bevelled on each hide, to 4 inches wide on Iwttoni, paced about 1(> inches on ('i-n- tros 'rh(^ coiicrct(» should ix; firmly bodded beneath and ugiiin^t oMch <[(\l'.

Specifications for Transverse System of Elnd- Pressure Floor Arch. The following form of specification may be of assistance to rchitects in preparing their specifications for tile floors : Contractors submitting proposals for fire-proof floor arches shall, hen required, prepare detail drawings showing the sjrstem and ^plication of floor arch proposed to be used. The general require- lents of such design shall be as follows : 1st. Arches to be level top and bottom, filling space between the Bams from a point not less than seven eighths of an inch below le soffit of beam up to within one inch of the top of the beam. 2d. The abutment tile adjoining or resting upon the floor beams lall have its hollows run parallel with the beams, but the vous- )irs shall be laid transversely, with hollows running at right Dgles to the floor beams, so that the tile blocks forming the arch lay receive the pressure resulting from imposed load on their end .Kstion and distribute it lengthwise of their respective web members. 3d. Soffits of all beams shall be covered with tile slabs keyed 5curely in place, flushing with under surface of arch. Tests. Each arch shall be subjected to a test of a moving load consisting f a roller weighing 1 ,000 pounds to each lineal foot, and applied 3rty-eight hours after the centres have been struck and before the oncrete has been filled in. This roller to be rolled over the top of be tile wherever the supervising architect or his superintendent hall direct. In addition to such rolling test, the arches, after being set in lace seventy-two hours, shall be subjected to a dropping test made 1 the following manner : Before the concrete is applied on the rches, a bed of sand two inches thick shall be spread loosely over le top of the arches, Rud a wooden block or timber, weighing 200 mnds, shall be dropped thereon from a height of ten feet. If the 4iG</ FIKE-PUOOF FLOOUS. arclies withstand this impact for three c-ontiniious blows without breiikin<>: through, the test shall bo considered satisfactory, and the floor arches bo accei)ted. Should the floor arches break throu^rh under the blows, it >\v.i\\ be deemed (conclusive that the metliod of floor arch employed is faulty, and the contractor will Imj r(H|uired to remove same from the building and provide arches suitable to withsi;nnl the tests recjulred.

Pieces of one or more of the tile, how- ever, dropped out at nearly every blow. Under the fire and water test, one of the fire-clay arches was destroyed by three ap[>lications of the water ; the other withstood fourteen applications of the water, alternating with extreme heat. The porous terra-cotta. arch withstood eleven applications of water, alternating with extreme heat, uninjured. The temperature of the tile at the time the water was applied varied from 1,300^ to 1,600° F. Under the continuous fire test, both fire-clay arches were destroyed after being subjected to a most intense heat for twenty- four hours. The porous tcrra-cotta arch, after having a continuous fire under it for twenty-four hours, was practically un- injured, as it afterward supported a weight of briyks of 12,5o0 lbs. on a space 8 feet wide, in the middle of the arch. These tests were conducted with perfect fairness, and unquestion- ably show the superiority of the [)orous terra-colta arches. The porous terra-cotta tile, new and dry. weighed 34 lbs. to tlio sfiuare foot ; the fire-clay tile which stood the tests the best weighed 40^ lbs. per square foot, and the other 32 lbs. per square foot. Other Tests. — During the construction of the Board of Trade building, in Chicago, in 1884, a 6-inch tile arch of 3 feet 8 inches span, made by the Wight Fire-proofing Company, of Chicago, was loaded up to 7o6 lbs. per square foot without injuring the arch. The arch was also severely tested by dropping heavy dry- gooils cases upon it from a height of 4 feet, without injury. When the large (l6-feet) sfwin arches were laid in the Commerce building, on Pacific Avenucj, in Chi(;ago, each arch was tt^sUnl by rolling an iron pulley, 6 feet in diameter and 14 inches wide. weighing 2,180 lbs., over each square foot, before the concrete had been filled in the haunches. This is a convenient method of test- ing the strength of a floor after it is laid, and its use is to be highly recommended. Streivsrth of Briek Arches.— Brick arches, properly built betwt»en iron beams, as described on j)age 440, are practically inde- stnictible, from any usage or load that could occur in a building. When the Western Union Telegrai)h building, in New York City, was being erected, Mr. P. C. Merry, the architect, made a series of tests on several forms of floor arches, supported by irou 448 FIRE- PROOF FLOORS. beams placed about five feet apart, by dropping a piece of granite, li5 inches s(juare and 4 feet lon^j:, with rounded edges, from a height of three f(»et. on lop of tlic arches : and. while ail of the other jin^lu'S wci*e destroyed, the brick urcli withstooil the nhock S(!veral times uninjured, and only after repeated |)oundings in the saiiK^ phicc one brick at a time was knocked out until the arch was finally hroken down. That l>ri(;k floor arch(\s will endure prreat distortion was sliown by tin' loiding of an arched fUK)r at the Watertown Arsenal, Mass. A flooi- \JI) feel square, was miule of five ir)-inch I-l)eam8, 20U lbs. per yard, carrying brick arches. The beams were 7 feet 4.8 inches apart on eenlres, and rested on l)ri(!k walls 28 feet inehe.<« apart. The rise of the brick arches was y.5 inches. ''Common, rather soft-burn(Ml ]>rick were us(mI, laid (m edge with lime mortar. The arches were i)acked with concrete, and planked over. The miixi- nuiin load carried by t his fl(K)r (when tlie Ijeams, and not the arches, failed) was 50:} lbs. per scpiare f(K)t. This load caused a gnulual and continuous yielding of the beams, winch was aHowed to con- tinue till till' ll(M)r was deflected a distance of 13.07 inulies, meas- ured at the centre of I he mi(hlle berims."

J. Hyatt and Jackson Concrete Floors.— Concrete com- posed of broken stone, fragments of brick, pottery, and gravel, held together by being mixed with lime, cement, asphaltum, or other binding substances, has been used in construction to resist compressive stress for many ages. With the introduction of Portland cement, concrete construction has taken a more important position among the various methods of building, so that now entire buildings are constructed of con- crete, such as the Hotel Ponce de Leon. fi.t St. Augustine, Florida; and in (Jalifornia. especially, concrete is largely used in the con- struction of floors, sidewalk arches, etc. The concrete is not used between iron beams, as are the brick and tile arches, but the concrete itself is made self-supporting from wall to wall by means of embedding iron in the bottom of the con- crete. Portland cement concrete has a great resistance to com- pression, but possesses little tensile strength. In 187G Mr. Thaddeus Hyatt, the inventor, while considering the matter of fire-proof floor construction, conceived the idea of forming concrete beams by embedding iron«in the bottom of the concrete to afford the necessary tensile strength which the concrete lacked. Mr. Hyatt made many experimental beams, with the iron introduced in a great variety of ways, as straight ties, with and without anchors and washers ; truss rods in various forms ; flat pieces of iron set vertically and laid flat, anchored at intervals along the entire length. These experimental beams were tested and broken by David Kirkaldy, of London, and the results pub- lished by Mr. Hyatt for private distribution, in the year 1877. By these tests Mr. Hyatt proved conclusively that iron could be perfectly united with concrete, and that it could be depended upon under all conditions for its full tensile strength. The method Mr. Hyatt adopted as the best for securing perfect unison of t'.ie iron and concrete was to use the iron as thin vertical blades placed near the bottom of the concrete beam or slab, extend- ing its entire length, and bearing on the supports at both ends ; Fig. 14. 450 FIRK-PKOOF FLOORS. tbcso vortical blades to be anchored at internals of a few inches by round win>s threaded through holes punched opposite each other in the vertical blades, thus forming a skeleton or gridiron, as shown in Fit;. 14 F^>r a perfect combination of these substances, it is essential that the one should 1)6 united with the other in such a maimer that the iron cannot stretch or draw without the concrete extending with it. The only person in this country to make practical application of the method devised by Mr. Hyatt, so far as the author is aware, is Mr. P. II Jackson, of San Francisco, Cal., who has used it quite extonisivoly in that city foj: covering sidewalk vaults, and for tl>e support of store lintels ; also, for self-supf)orting floors. Mr. Jack- son publislicd a pani[)hlot in 189.), entitled Impromment in BuUd^ ing ('onnfnfrfit^ny which gives a great amount of information on this sul).ject, and on concrete in general construction. To sliow the strength of this method of construction, Bfr. Jack- son, in Aug\L«*t. 1885, prepared a beam, 7 x 14 inches in section and 10 fiM't 6 inches long ; near the bottom were sitven vertical blades of iron extending the entire length ; three of these were i y \ inch, and four wore i x 1 inch, with i-inch wires threaded through overy 3 inches. Near the top were bedded two cast-iron rope moulding bars to assist the compressive strength of the con- crete, which, however, was siiown to IxMin necessary. The concrete at the top and bottom was one ])art cement to one of sand ; centre portion, oni' of cement to iwoof siind. Thi' Iwam was supfiorted by U-inch In-irings at both cn<ls. thus leaving it fed in the clear be- tween snp|»«»ris.

Fig. IS. Mr. Bansome patented his improvement in 1884, and since that time it ha3i>een used quite extensively in San Franijisco. The bars, preferably made from the best quality nf rectangular iron, are twisted at an expense not exceeding from twenty-five to fifty cents per ton, which constitutes an inaigniflcant item of cost. The sizes so far used range from \ inch to 2 inches square. Concrete floors, as made by Mr. Eansome, are made in two forms — flat, and receesed or panelled. It can be and has been used for spans up to 34 feet, A section of a flat floor, in the California Academy of Science. 15 x S3 feet, teas tested in 1890 with a uniform load of 41,^ lbs, per square foot, and the load left on for one month. The deflection at the centre of the 23-feet space was only ; inch. It was estimated by the architects that the saving in this construction over the ordinary use of steel beams and hollow- tilo arches of the same strength, and with similar cement-finis I led floors on lop, amounted to tii< cents per square foot of floor. As a flre-i>roof construction, the concrete and iron con- struction above described is undoubtedly equal to any other con- Btruction in use. Oampotitum of the Concrete. — Regarding the concrete used tor these floors, the proportions are given for a cement of good average quality, that will develop a tensile strength of 350 lbs. per square inch in fourteen days. II a weaker cement is used, the quantity should be proportionately increased. The aggregates should be of any of the following solmtances, which are named about in the order of merit, the first being the best: Hard limestone rock, hard clinker brick, hard broken pottery, granite or basalt, hard clinker'^, broken flint or other hard rock. Care riiould be taken tj> use neither dirty nor soft clayey rock.

(Computations, verified by actual tests, are made, and the use of needless material and weight is thereby avoided. The cable rods used in the l«ee system are made of round drawn steel rods of about thirty onc-hundredths of an inch in diameter, ]aid spirally together, usually in two strands, as that form affords large gripping surface for the cement. Mr. Lee's patents cover a variety of forms, some containing several strands, with different shaped buttons, washers, etc., for affording great cement engaging surface. The rods being of drawn steel, they have high tensile strength, and are specially free from flaws or defects ; hence are found to make excellent tension members. The rods are spaced 8, 10, or 12 inches apart, according to width of tile used. The widths and shapes of tiles are varied to suit different spans and loads. Fig. 23 shows one design of roof for ten-foot spans. It is a f^25 fty^* special adaptation of the system, to cases requiring large protection to the metal from heat, as in dust chambers of smelters. Fig. 24 shows light design with finished wood top, suitable for dwellings, the wood top being more expensive than cement top. With a cement top the completed structure is but little more ex- pensive than a wood joist structure for the same purpose. The floors are absolutely incombustible, sound-proof, and vermin-proof. Strength and weight tables are furnished by the builders, giving various depths of floor structures for different spans and loads. The Metropolitan Company's Floors. Under this system, which has heretofore been known as the •'Manhattan*' system, and is protected by letters patent, fire- proof floors are made as follows : Cables, each composed of two galvanized wires, twisted, arc placed at given distances apart over the tops of the beams and transversely with them, as shown in Fig. 25. These cables i>ass under bars in the eenfre of the si)ans, and are thus ^iven a uni- form deflection between each pair of beams. The distance between the cables is varied with the loads to be provided for. Forms or centres are then placed under them, and a composition, made prin- cipally of plaster of Paris and wood chips, is poured on. This composition solidifies in a few minutes, after which the forms or iti-j/i FIKK-PliOOF FLOOKti. ceiitros are removed. 1'he rcsultini; lloor is anfitcientlr stroDf; to be iiM'il at once uiiilor tiie IoiuIh for which it has been calcukted, mill UM ids Kiirfni-'C is imiforin itiid bvul with llie tops of thu bnimx, a working Uimt U llius riiniishwl.

Centres are placed one incli below the beams, and the composition is poured thereon. The centres are then removed, and the ceiling thus made is readf for plastering. Whether a ceiling like that shown in Pig. 36, or a flat ceiling as shown in Fig. ■4'!. is osad, the webs of all beams are covered with about three inches in thiukness of the Metropolitan composition, which thoroughly pro- tects the beams from the etfeeta of heat It is claimed that this ma- terial is so remarkable a non-conductor of hat that a moderate thickness of it prevents the passage of nearly all warmth. " In.sETere Are tests the l)eams have rfmained cold, and conse- quentlj were unaffected. When exposed to flame for a long time, the Metropolitan composition \b attacked to a depth of from ,\- to A of an inch, the remainder being unaffected ; nnd when nater is thrown upon it, the mass (iocs not !ly or crack. When made thor- oughly wet, as would happen from water thrown into a building during a Are. the composition is nofdestroyod." In Paris a composition of plaster of Paris and broken brick, chips, etc , has liocn used for giineraiions f;.r fniiunig ceilings ijutwpon beams, so tliat the question of its durability is there fully settled. The strength of floor? made under the Metropolitan system has been accurately determinB<l for vitrious spans by 11 great number of carefully-made tests " The loads that so break up the oonpositioa of floors made 452^7 FIllE-l'ilOOF FLOOUS. under this system as to RMjuiro it to be replaced, vary from 1,100 to 2.00) j)<)un(ls ppT square foot on spans of from 4 to 6 feet. 'I'he W(M<^lit of ?i floor finislie:!, as shown in Fig. 26, when ready for the plaster underneath and the floor above, is about IS pounds I>er sfiujire toot ; and for a floor and ceiling such as is shown in Kig. 27, 24 pounds per sciuaro foot; the thickness of the floor plate is alxmt Ji'l iiu'lies. T1h» proprietors of this system reconmiend that the floor beams be spa('e<l about i> feet apart, as this distance appears to give the best results witli the greatest economy. P'or further information concerning tliis system, the reader is referred to the Metrojx)litan J^'ire Proofing Co., Trenton, X. J. There are several styles of floors constructed on the principle of the Metropolitan floor, although nearly all of the others use Port- land cement concrete instead of the plaster c<)mi)osition. Wire lathing, (■xj)anded metal, and various shaped bars are used for the t(?nsiun menil)ers. The jn'incipal advantage sought in these floors over the icrra-cotta file arches, is a reduction in the weight of the fl(K)r, thereby causing a saving in the steel construction. The floors themselves are also, as a rule, a littie cheaju'r than the tile floors. Another important characteri.stic of all floors constructed on this j)rincip]e is, any st^ttling of the anhes. or filling, will tend to draw tiie beams (»r girdei's together, instead of pushing them apart, as is the case wiih tile arches ; and tie rods are, therefore, unnecessary.

FIRE-PROOF FLOORS. 4526 Concrete and Wire Netting Floors. '■ Pigs. 28, 29, 30, and 31, show two styles of fire-proof floors, devised by the New Jersey Wire Cloth C'ompany, and described, together with several other applications of concrete and wire net- ting, in a pamphlet published by them. The segmental arch shown ^^^r ^ ■;*: ' ^^ >— J — ''Vl m ^^v^^^ fiii^'^ m^ ^j Fig. 28. in Fig. 28 is constructed by forming a centre, made of small rods, cut the proper length to form the desired curve, and to just reach into the angles of the web and lower flange of the floor beams. These rods are inserted between the meshes of wire lathing, and the sheets, which would be three feet or more in width, are then Fig. 29. bent to the curve and sprung into place. A succession of these sheets placed side by side fill the entire space from wall to wall, and make a continuous network of iron wire and rods, upon which concrete can be spread from above without the use of any other support. The lower flanges of the beams are covered by wire lathing attached to a succession of rods hooked over the arch rods and held in place by the wedges which are inserted between the beams and the rods. The under side of the arches and the lathing around the beams is then plastered and finished in the usual way. It is claimed that with this construction the strength of the arch is only limited by the ability of the beams to carry the load. The weight of the concrete will vary from 30 to 40 pounds per square foot. FIllE-i'ROOF PIX)ORS. Fi^. BO and 31 ahov u flour coustnuitioi: designed on the com- pcjsiic Ikjuth principle.

FIRE-PROOF FLOORS. 462^ The Fawcett Ventilated Fire-Proof Floor. This is a style of floor construction differing almost entirely from any of the floors herein described. It has been used exten- sively in England, and to some extent in this country. In the construction of this fire proof floor, the special feature is a Tubnla/r Lintel^ or hollow tube, made of flre or red chimney pot clay, and burned mellow. Iron Beams (of sections to suit the spans and loads) are placed at two feet centres, and the lintels are fixed between, with their duig- onals at right angles to the beams ; the end of each bay is squared by cutting (during manufacture) an ordinary lintel, parallel to the diagonal ; the piece cut off when reversed goes on the other end. Thus the ends and sides of all lintels are open next the walls. These are called ** splits." The lintels being in position, specially prepared, cement concrete is filled in between and over them, which takes a direct bearing upon the bottom flange of the beams, thus relieving the lintels of the floor load, which is taken by the iron and concrete, the lintels forming a permanent fire-proof centering, reducing the dead weight of the floor twenty-five per cent, and saving about half the concrete. Cold Air is admitted (through air bricks in the external walls) into any of the open ends or sides of the lintels, and passes through them from bay to bay under the beams. Note, only two air bricks are absolutely necessary in each room, to insure a thorough current of air. The flat bottom of the lintel completely incases the bottom flange of the beam without being in contact with it, a clear half- inch space being left for the passage of cold air. It is claimed that the chief tire-resisting agent in this floor is not so much the terra-cotta or the concrete as the cold air, and that the circulation of air through the floor and around the beams will actually prevent the iron from ever getting hot at all. The Fawcett Company claims that their floors have never been injured by fire and water, Ixiyond what could be repaired bv replas- tering the ceiling and redeconiliug the walls. This floor needs no centering or any other support from below while in course of con- struction, and can be used as soon as finished. It is guaranteed to carry fmm 150 to 750 pounds to the square foot, according to the requirements of the building, with perfect safety.

The Guastavino Tile Arch System. Within a few years a method of constructing floors, partitions, staircases, etc., by means of thin tile cemented together so as to make one solid mass, has been introduced by R. Guastavino, of New York. The floors in this system are constructed by cover- ing the space between the girders by a single vault, constructed of tile about 6" x 8", and ^ inch thick, cemented together in three or more thicknesses, depending upon the size of the vault. The thick- ness is generally increased at the haunches. The strength of these floor vaults, considering their thickness, appears to the author very remarkable. This method of forming floors is especially desirable where a vaulted ceiling for decorative purposes is wanted, as the vault can be made the full size of the room. The iron- work used for posts and girders must bo piote:jted as in other methods of fire- proofing. The iron-work of the floors must be especially arranged for this system when it is desired to use it. As far as the author can judge from an inspection of the system, it possesses some ad- vantages over all other present methods of construction (and, pos- sibly, some disadvantages), and is likely to be largely used in the future. It has been employed in a number of buildings in New York and Boston, and a few other cities. The new Public Library Building in Boston has the Guastavino floor system, which is ar- ranged so as to give a fine effect of vaulting in the ceiling. Rules for Determining the Size of I-Beams, etc. The method of computing the size of the iron beams used in fire- proof floors is merely to determine the exact load they will have to support, and tlicn to find the required size of beam to carry tliat load. The weight of the floor itself should be determined for each par- ticular case, as it will vary with the kind and size of tile, the amount of concrete filling, kind of flooring, etc. The weight of the arch itself may be taken from the manufact- urer's catalogue, or from the table on page 445, and to this weight should be added about 5 pounds per square foot for mortar used in setting. For each inch in depth of concrete add 8 pounds; for plastered ceiling, 8 pounds ; for hard-wood flooring, 4 pounds ; for 454 FIUE- PROOF FIDO US. marble floor tiles, 1 inch thick. 1-1 pounds. The weight of the betims may bo taken at 5 pouncls per square foot for 9-inch bojuns. and () pounds lor 10 and 12-inch l)eains. Very few fire-proof floors will be found to woii^li less than 75 pounds per square foot, and where marbh^ tiles are used for the flooring? the weight of the (con- struction often reaches 1)5 pounds. The superimposed loads will, of course, be the sam(^ as those jLriven on page 426. The weight to be suj)p»)rted by the beams will be, w = distance between centers x span of beams x (/ -f /'); / representing the superimposed load, and /' the weight of the floor construction, including an allowance for the weight of the beams. Having obtained the value of this expression, the size of beam required to carry this load may be easily ol)tained from the tables in Chapter XIV.' To save the labor of making these calculations in the principal classes of buildings in which fire-proof floors are used, the follow- ing tal)les have been computed, which may be safely relied upon.

For example, if we have an office floor 48 feet square, to support with iron beams and tile arches, wc; may eith(T use one girder down the centre, with 12-inch beams, spaced 4 feet apart ; or two girders, and lO-inch beams spiU3ed 6 feet apart. In the former case we should require 11 beams the full width of the building, weighing 455a FIRE-PROOF FLOORS. 16,896 pounds, and in the latter 7 beams weighing 8,568 pounds, a saving of nearly 50 per cent, in the steel. From this, however, will have to be deducted something for extra girders and columns, but tho total saving would probably equal '^5 \)er cent. In rcganl to the columns, it will not make much difference in the amount ol' iron used, whether there are one or two rows, as the total weight to 1)6 supported is the same in either case, and if one row of girders is used the columns will be closer and heavier than if two rows are used. l)<»rtecti(>ii of Rolled I-Reaiiis. — The deflection of rolled iron I-beams can be computed by Formula 1, under the Stiffne^ts of BcatHs, Chap. XVI. Accordiiiir to the calculations of Mr C. L. Strobel, C.E., tho beams in the foregoing tables will not deflect over one-thirtieth of an iucli for every foot of span, under the load which they have been calcnlatcd to support.

In this ('hai)t('r it is proposed to describe the principal oonstruc* tivc f«'atun*s of what, in tli«* Eastern States, is known as the " Mill Const ruction," or **Slow-]>nrnina; Construetion." It is a method of const rui't ion lirought al)(>nt largely throngh the influence of the factory imitiial insurance companies, and especially through the efforts of Mr. William i». Wliitinj^, whose mechanical judgment, experience, and skill as a manufacturer, have been «levote<lfor many years to tli* interests of the factory nnitual comiMinies and to the improv(>ni(>nt of factories of all kinds.

" Rafters of plank, eighteen to twenty-four inches between centres, set edgewise. " Any roof-plank less than two inches thick (three inches pre- ferred) ; any covering which is not grooved and splined. " Any hollow space of an inch or more in a roof. '^ Any and every mode of sheathing on the inside of the roof so as to leave a hollow space. " Any and every kind of metal roof, except a tin or copper cover- ing on plank. " Boxed cornices of every kind. " Bad floors containing hollow spaces or unnecessary openings. " Thin or thick floors resting on plank set edgewise, eighteen to twenty-four inches between centres. "All sheathing nailed to the under side of plank or timber, making a hollow floor. ** Bad finish, leaving hollow spaces, or flues. "All inside finish which is furred off so as to leave a space between the finish and the wall. " Wooden dados, if furred off. " Open elevators. " Iron doors, iron shutters. " Any and all concealed spaces, wooden flues, or wooden ven- tilators of every kind, in which fire can lurk or spread, and be pro- tected from water. " Any and all openings from one floor to another, or from one department to another, except such as. are absolutely required for the conduct of the business (all necessary openings should be pro- tected by self-closing hatches or shutters, or by adequate wooden fire-doors covered with tin; automatic doors preferred in many places). " Ji^ssential Features for the Safe Construction of Mills an<l Storehouses. — Solid beams, or double beams bolted near together, eight to ten feet between centres. Not to be painted, varnished, or * filled' for at least three years, after the building is finished, lest dry-rot should ensue. Ends of timbers ventilated by an inch air-space each side in the masonry. " Roof nearly flat. Timbers laid across the tops of the walls to >• 458 MILL CONSTRUCrriON project eighteen to thirty-six inches, as may be desired, serving as brackets. Plank laid to the ends of the timbers.

In some cases, beams have b(?en i)laced twelve feet apart, witli four-inch plank for th<* floor ; but in such cases a careful computation of the strength should be madt*, based upon the load to be placed thereon, l)efore so wide a s})ace between beams is adopted, lest there sliould \ye. ex- Cisssive dellection.

These timbers are covered with two and a half or three inch spruce plank, grooved and splined the same as for the floors. The plank extend to the end of the overhanging timbers, and form the eaves to the building, no boxed cornice being allowed. If the roof is flat, as is generally the case in mills and factories, the plank should be covered with tin, gravel, or duck. If tin is used, it should be the best " M. F." tin, painted on the under side with two coats of red-lead, and well dried before the sheets are laid. If a gravel roof is used, it should be equal to the best quality of tar-and-gravel roofing over four thicknesses of the best roofing-felt. Cotton duck is gradually coming into use as a roofing material, and has for a long time been used for covering parts of vessels. It is light, durable, does not leak, and is not readily inflammable. The material should be twelve-ounce duck, weighing sixteen ounces to the square yard, and should be thoroughly stretched, and tacked with seventeen-ounce tinned carpet-tacks, the edges being lapped about an inch. If the roof-planks are rough, or not of an even thickness, a layer of heavy roofing-paper should be laid before the duck is put down. After the duck is laid, it should be thoroughly wet, and then painted with white-lead and boiled linseed-oil before it becomes dry ; which makes it water-proof. To protect from fire, give it two more coats of white-lead, and over this a coat of iron- clad paint. Instead of the four coats of white-lead and oil, the duck may be saturated with a hot application of pine-tar thinned with boiled linseed-oil. This lias been found to work perfectly. The ironclad paint should be applied, whichever method is used. If the roof is pitched, it should be covered with shingles or slate laid over three-quarters of an inch of mortar; which protects the slate from the heat, should the building take fire, and rentiers the roof cooler in summer, and warmer in .wintei*, whether slate or shingles are used. Where there are no buildings near, shingles are recommended, as they are warmer than slate (thus saving in the cost of heating), and are also cooler in summer. If the shingles are painted, which is advisable, they should be dipped in paint before being laid, so as to be entirely covered on all sides with paint: otherwise, moisture Avill get into the shingle through tlie place not painted, and, being prevented from evaporating by the paint on the outside, will rot the shingle.

The ends of the pintles and the iron plates against which they rest should be turned true, so that the contact will be uni- form. Fig. 5 represents a vertical section through the floor and the centre of the columns, and Fig. 6 shows a perspective view of a pintle with the base of the upper column coming down over the top. The brick piers in the basement supporting the columns should be capped with an iron plate twenty inches by twenty inches, an inch and three-fourths thick. The above is the most approved method of construction now in vogue for mills, factories, and storehouses; and the dimensions given for the various parts will answer for any cotton or woollen factory where the bays are not more than eight feet long from centres. Where the bays are more than this, or the loads on the floors are greater, as may be the case in storehouses, the floor-plank and timbers should be proportioned according to the rules for strength and stiffness given in Chap. XXII., and the columns proportioned according to the rule given in Chap. XI. ff partitions are desired in such a mill or store- house, they should be built of two-inch tongued and grooved plank placed together on end (forming a solid partition), and plastered both sides, either on wire, or on dovetailed iron lath. Such partitions have been found to work well after a trial of twelve years, and offer effectual resistance to fire. Mill doors and shutters should be built of two thicknesses of inch boards, covered on all sides with tin, as described in Chaj). XXVI. For a thorough description of the apparatus and appliances used for the fire protection of mills, and for a thorough discussion of the vibration of mills, the deflection of the floor-planks, and, in fact, every thing that refers to the construction and protection of mills and factories, the reader is referred to Mr. Woodbury's work on Ihe "Fire Protection of Mills," mentioned al)ove. The cost, per square foot of total floor area of mills and factories at the present time (1884), according to Mr. Edward Atkinson, is as follows : — Mill with three stories for machinery, and a base- ment for miscellaneous purposes 75 to 80 cts.

FIBE-PBOOF OONSTEUCTION FOB BUIIJ)INQS. 467 CHAPTER XXV. MATERIALS AND METHODS OF FIRE-PROOF CONSTRUCTION FOR BUIIiDINGS. The terai fire-proof is applied to various kinds of buildings, sometimes correctly, but more often incorrectly. The buildings most generally referred to by this term may be classed as follows : 1st. Those in which all the structural parts, both on the interior and exterior, are of non-combustible materials carefully protected from the action of fire by fire-resisting materials. (See also quota- tion from Chicago building ordinance, page 485.) 2d. Those built on the so-called •* mill principle," and protected by fire-proof material. 3d. Those built in the usual manner with wooden construction, and protected by fire-proof material. Of these classes the first is the only one that is considered by experts to be absolutely impreg- nable to the effects of fire. MATERIALS. Various materials have been introduced for the purpose of mak- ing incombustible buildings, and for the purpose of fire-proof pro- tection of other materials in structural parts of buildings, all more or less effective. Experience, however, has shown that the only materials upon which it is safe to rely are the products of clay, some concretes, and lime mortar under certain conditions. Plaster blocks have been found to be useless to withstand the effects of fire, moisture, and frost. The lime of Teil was for several years used in the manufacture of fire proof material, but to the best knowledge of the writer this has been discarded. All methods of fire-proofing by the use of exposed iron in any form are also acknowledged to be ineflicient. Of all materials, burnt clay has the most numerous applications in incomI)ustible building. It stands preeminently first as the most efiicieni fire-proof material in all departments of building, and especially so for interior filling of floors and parti- tions. For this it is used in hollow tiles of two general kinds. Tliey are known by several different names : the one by such as porous terra-cotta, terra cotta lumber, cellular pottery, porous til- 40^ FIKE-PROOF COXSTRrrTTOX FOR BriLDIX"08. in^, otr-. ; the other by fire-clay tile, Iiollow pottery, hard tile, terra- coUa, <lonso tiliiip:, etc For convenience, the first is herein referred to as porous tiling, and the second as di.*nsL' tiling Tht» terms " hollow tiling "' ahd "fireproof tiling" will Ikj usid when Ixiih are r< IVrred to in ii general way.

Men.<«e tiles are hanl and uriitle The most esM-ntial reipti^itcs of a fire pnKif filliugand FIRE-PROOF CONSTRUCTION FOR BUILDINGS. 469 protecting material are these : It should be tough, not easily shat- tered by impact ; non-expansive, not easily cracked by heating or cooling ; slightly elastic, yielding gradually to excessive loads, but not breaking or collapsing ; compact and hard burned, but not dense ; strong enough, but not of excessive crushing strength. Blocks should bo light weight by being porous, but not by having thin shell and webs ; should be built in between beams by such metiiods as bring all parts of the tiles into position to do the great- est service, whereby n. structural eflBciency equal to the efficiency of the material is obtained. These requirements are very fully met by properly made and properly built-in porous tiling. Shells of porous tiles should be from seven -eighths to one inch thick, and webs from three-quarters to seven -eighths, according to size of hollows. Dense Tiling;, — Next to porous tiling as a fire-resisting mate- rial must be placed dense tiling, also a product of clay. It is made into hollow tiles of much the same shape and size as porous tiling. A variety of clays are used. Most manufacturers, though not all, use more or less fire-clay, and combine with it potter's clay, plastic clays, or tough brick clays. It is very dense, and possesses high crushing strength. In outer walls exposed to weather, required to be light, it is very desirable. Some manufacturers furnish it with a semi-glazed surface for outer walls of buildings. For such use it has great durability, and effectually stops moisture. In using dense tiling for fire- proof filling, care should be taken that the tiles are free from cracks, and sound and hard burnt. In the earlier days of fire proof construction dense tiling seemed to supply the wants very well, but in later years the improvements in the manufacture of porous tiling have resulted in the displace- ment of dense tiling to a considerable extent. Concrete. — Concrete made of Portland cement mixed with broken pieces of burnt fire-clay, broken bricks or tiles, burnt ballast or slag, and clear sand, is said to resist an intense heat suc- cessfully. It is recommended for fire-proof construction by English writers, and concrete construction has been largely used in Cali- fornia on account of its fire-proof qualities. Thaddeus Hyatt, who invented the process of combining iron and concrete so as to resist transverse strains, describes a remarka- bly severe test by both fire and water, of concrete construction, in a work published by him. entitled, Portland Cement Concrete Com- bined mth Iron as a Building Material. The concrete was heavily loaded and heated red-hot on the under side, when a stream of water was thrown against it for a period of fifteen minutes, and 47l» FiI{i:-JM:()OI' CON'STKrCTlOX FOR uriLDixos. the stren«^lli (jr (lumbilitv of tin* (Mincrote nunaiiKMl unuircottHniv tin- tl'>t. l*ias(or, or IjIIIU* Mortar, wIhmi dirccily appliei I in brick or lilr. will witlistaml llio acliiuior hotli lire iiiid "Mhr; ;.lso \»!nu «j»I>Iie«l to tlir suitncc of j)l!inks ami tii!il»i'r> l>y im-juis oi win.- lalli- illu^ ]ir(A'icl('(l ii lill.s all thr spaci* l«!t\\'('rii lin- wiir ainl ilu' tiiiiiicr.

Only sufficient, strength is required in this wall to with- stand its own weight, and if any of it should be destroyed it would not cause the destruction of the building. The interior columns should be encased by porous terra-cutta or fire-clay tiles, finished in plaster or Keene's cement, or Portland cement if preferred, and the floors should be constructed of iron beams filled in between with tile arches, the bottom and top of the beams being carefully pi'otected by the same material. All partitions for dividing the various floors into rooms, cor- ridoi-s, etc., should be built of fire- proof partition tile, or hollow bricks, and the roof and upper ceiling should also be constructed of the same material, supported by iron-work. In such a building it is impossible for the construction of the building to be en- dangered by either a local fire or by a conflagration, though the inside finish may be entirely consumed. It is possible, however, to finish the building in such a way that there will be but little wood to consume, which could be easily replaced ; also, by provid- ing fire-doors to the openings in the fire-proof partitions, any fire originating in the building can be confined to the part of the build- ing in which it started. DETAILS OF OONSTRUOTION. Floors. — The various approved methods of constructing fire- proof floors have been described in Chapter XXIII. Iron Columns. — The destruction of iron columns by in- cipient fires has been the common cause of the loss of vast amounts of property ever since iron columns have been useil. Their destruc- tion during fires, in buildings supposed to be flre-proof and in which incombustible materials of construction have been used, has shown the necessity for protecting them from the effects of intense heat under all circumstances. These disastrous effects have been intensified by the sudden throwing of cold water upon the heated columns, causing them to bend suddenly by contraction on the side upon which water is thrown, and consequently to break with ordinary loads. The expansion which occurs in iron columns before they have bec^n materially weakened by heat is another cle- ment of weakness. The first result in such cases is to raise the floors or walls ; and inasmuch as the strain required to raise them is much greater than that needed to hold them, the work to be done by the columns is much greater under such circumstances. The almost universal practice at the present day is to use wrought-iron and steel posts for the interior supports, and protect FIBE-PBOOP CONBTKUOTION FOE BUILDISOB. 4T3a the floors, the aams material vill generally be beat lor protecting tbo girders.

The method at present most in favor for constructing fire-proof partitions apiieai-s to i)e by tlio use of hollow blocks or tiles, of either dense or |)or()U£> terracotta. Partitions arc sometiinct; built by using 4-inch isteel beams for studding, and fastening metal lathing on each side ; but this is not as practical a iMir- tition as one made of torra-cotta blocks. Par- titions constructed of terra-cotta blocks, either donso or porous, have many vMluable features other than their tire-proof qualities. They have the greatest degree of strength combined with light- ness. They are entirely vermin pro«jf, and do not reatlily transmit cold. heat, or sound. Wiien dense tile are used, courses of porous tile should be placed op|)osite the l^ase or any wood mouldings, as they will receive and hold the nails while the dense tile are apt to be ))rokon by the nails. Several styles of partition blocks are mana- factiired. of both dense and porous terra-cotta. some with grooved or (love tailed surfaces, and others with plain surfaces.

There are a number of dif- ferent dcvii-es and methods, all accomplishing substantially Um FIRE-PROOF CONSTRUCTION FOR BUILDINGS. 472c same results. Prominent among them are the expanded metal companies, using cliannel bars or flat bars and expanded metal lathing' ; the Lee Fire Proof Construction Company, using a core of one-inch tile, and burying Lee tension rods ^similar to those used in the flooi-s) in thv; plastering on each side ; the Doring Fire- proofing Company, using rods, bars or channels, and burlaps ; and the two-inch porous terra-cotta [)artition made by Henry Maurer & Son. The expanded metal system requires a scratch coat of plaster- ing on one side, the usual brown coat work on each side, and the usual finish coat on each side — altogether, five coats for the com- pleted partition. The Lee and Maurer systems require no scratch coat, but the usual brown coating on each side, as done with hard- setting mortar, and the finishing coats. The Doring requires a scratch coat on each side, and then the usual brown and finishing coats. An essential thing for all thin partiti<ms is that the plastering be of hard-setting mortar, such as Acme Cement, King's Windsor, Adamant, Rock Wall, and many others. The walls largely acquire their stififness from the solidity of the plastering ; hence the firmer and harder the plastering, the more substantial the walls. Roofs. — For mansard roofs the most economical method of constniction is by using I-beams, set 5 to 7 feet apart, and filled in between with 3-inch hollow partition tile, provision for nailing slate being made by attaching 1^ x 2 inch wood strips to the outer face of the tile, the strips being set at the proper distances a[)art to receive the slate, the spaces between the strips being then plastered flush and smooth with cement mortar. In case of a severe confla- gration the slate would probably be destroyed, and the wooden strips might be consumed, but the damage could go no farther. In place of partition tile porous terra-cotta bricks or blocks may be usi»d for filling bc^tween the I-beams. For roofs where the pitch is not over 45 defjrci^s, 8x3 inch T-irons, set 10 inches between cen- tres, and filled in with slabs of porous terra-cotta, makes a very desirable roof. If slales are used they may be nailed directly into the tiles, or if it is (h^sired to use hollow tile, strips of wood may l)e nailed to the tile for receiving the slate, and the spaces b'.^tween the strips filled in with cement. This method may also be used for flat roofs. The b(?st construction for flat roofs, however, is to build the roof like the floors, with tile arches between ircm beams. The arches should then be covered with Portland cement, or rock asphalt, flashed around the edges with copper, and then tiled with terra-cotta tile, about 0x8 inches, and | inch thick. This makes a durable and substantial roof, perfectly water-tight and absolutely FIRE-PKOOF CONSTRUCTION FOR BUILDINGS. 473 proof against fire. Composition, cement, and asphalt have a natural affinity for the tile, and adhere readily to it without the use of nails or fastenings. If the roof is exposed on the under side, it can be plastered and finished the same as the under side of a floor. TriisscM. — Where steel trusses are used to support the roof or several stories of a building, it is very important that they be pro- tected not only from heat sufficient to warp them, but so that they will not expand sufficient to affect the vertical position of the col- umns by which they are supported. The following description of the covering of the trusses in the new Tremont Temple, Boston, furnishes a good illustration, of the way in which this should be accomplished : *' The steel girders were first placed in terracotta blocks, on all sides and below, these blocks being then strapped with iron all around the girders, and upon this was stretched expanded metal lathing, covered with a heavy coat of Windsor cement ; over this comes iron furring, which receives a second layer of expanded metal lath, the latter, in turn, receiving the finished plaster. There is. consequently, in this arrangement for fire protection, first a dead air space, then a layer of terracotta, a Windsor cement covering, another dead air space, and finally the external Windsor cement." Ceilings. — In office buildings having a flat roof, there is gener- ally an air space, or attic, between the roof and ceiling of upper story, ranging from three to five feet in height. This space is often utilized for running pipes, wires, etc. Generally the ceiling is constructed in the same way as the floors, with the difference that lighter beams and filling are used. It sometimes occurs that a suspended ceiling is desirable under pitch roofs, to form a finish for the upper story, and protect the roof construction. If only the weight of the ceilmg itself is to be provided for, such a ceiling can be constructed at least expense by u.-^ing wire or expanded -metal lathing stretched over light T's or angles, suspended from the roof construction. The angles or T's may be plac^ed four or five feet apart, and tension rods fastened to and under them, to support the lathing ; such a ceiling would weigh only about twelve pounds per square foot. Plaster boards or thin porous terra cotta blocks, placed between T bars, also make a light ceiling, and a goo<l ground for the plaster. Walls.— If it is desired to further outside walls they should in DO case be strapped with wood, but should be furred or lined with porous terracotta or fire-clay linings, as shown in Fig. 6. on which the plastering may be applied. This not only affords a protection FIBB-PBOOF C NSTBUCTION FOB BtJILDINim 476 blocka, the same as described under Class 1.

This is best done either by laying; an inch uC mortar between it and the upper floor, or by using liollow tiln blocks laid on top of the plaitlt- ing, with strips between lor nailing the upper flooring to. The flrst method is much the cheapest, and as fire is very slow in attacking a floor, suuh a construction would probably resist the ac- tion of the fire as long as would the other portions of the bnildlng.

Espoeial pains must be taken to see that all angles and junction of L-eilings with the walls and parti- tions are carefully protected, so that there may be no places in which the flre may work its way through the protection back of the plastering. Partitions. — The partitions in this class of buildings shonid be constfueted either of hollow tile partition blocks or bricks, as in Class 1, or they may bo built of 3-inch plank, tongued and grooved, and covered both skies with wire lathing from floor to ceibng, and back of the door jambs. The Walls should either be plastered directly on the brick- work, or furred with hollow tile blocks, as previously described. VTbea carefully built, a building of this kind will be practically PIBE-PROOF CONSTRUCTION FOR BUILDINGS. 477 Comigrated-wire Lathingr consists of flat sheets of double-twist warp-lath, with corrugations ^ of an inch deep running lengthwise at intervals of 6 inches. These sheets are made 8x8 feet in size, and applied directly to the under side of the floor timbers, to partitions, or brick walls, and fastened with staples. The object of the corrugation is to afford space for the mortar to clinch behind the lath, and at the same time do away with furring strips. The corrugations alto strengthen the lathing. This form of lathing, however, is not as desirable as those fol- lowing. Stiffened Wire Lathing. — The Clinton stiffened wire lath has corrugated steel furring strips attached every 8 inches cross- wise of the fabric, by means of metnl clips. These strips constitute the furring, and the lath is applied directly to the under side of the floors or to brick walls, etc. This lath is made in 32-inch and 36- inch widths, and comes in 100 yard rolls. The New Jersey Wire Cloth Co. also make a stiffened wire lathing by weaving into the ordinary 'wire cloth V-shaped strips of No. 24 sheet iron every 7.V inches. This is an excellent lath About the only difference between it and the Clinton cloth is that the bars in the latter are attached to the cloth instead of being woven in. Hammond's Metal Furring*. — A combination of shoet- metal bearings with steel furring rods, on which ordinary wire cloth is applied, makes one of tlio best fire-proof ceilings. By means of this furring the plaster may be kept an inch from the bottom of the timbers, thus allowing a free circulation of the air over the ceiling. It is claimed that t!iis is of importance in connection with fire- proofing, and is required by the building ordinance of the city of Chicago. The steel wires used for furring are fo small that the mortar entirely covers them, thus securely binding the cloth and rods together, greatly stiffening the ceiling. This method may be applied to any form of construction. Slieet-iron Latliing. — A number of styles of sheet-iron lathing have been invented and placed on the market, but they are objectionable from the fact that, in case of fire, the heat expands the iron and contnicls the mortar, so that the latter becomes sepa- rated and f:ills off. Even without considering its fire-proof quali- ties, sheet-iron latliing is not desirable, as it is difficult to get a good clinch on the mortar, so as to securely hold it in place. In the wire cloth, the amount of metal in the strands of wire is so sniall, and it also becomes so well l)edded in the mortar, that the action of intense heat does not affect it, and it has been practically demonstrated, both by actual fires in buildings and by fire tests, FIBE-PBOOF OOS&TRUUnoS FOR BUILDINGS. 4 79 elftborate decoration is to be applied, as it affords a much better sur- face than any other material. The upper surface of the floor must also be protected, either by putting an inch of mortar between the under and upper floor board- iug, or by filling in between the joist with fire-clay bridging tilo, or by brick nogging and covering with cement mortar, on top of which the upper floor is laid. As in the previous class, especial pains must be taken to see that all corners and angles are well protected. Roof. — If the building has a flat roof it should be protected the same as the floors, substituting for the upper floor boards, composi- tion roofing covered with flat tiles laid in cement. For steep roofs, efficient fire-proofing becomes a difficult problem. In the opinion of the author no building, five stories high or over, should be cov- ered with a pitch roof constructed of wood ; but if such a roof is used, it can be protected for a time by covering the roof boarding with porous tena-cotta blocks, aoout 15 inches square and 1^ inches thick, and nailing the slate directly to them, bedding the slate in cement as it is laid ; or the tile may be nailed to tiie rafters without boarding. For protection on the under side, if the attic space is finished, the under side of the rafters may be pro- tected as described for ceilings ; or, if the roof space is unfinished and more or less filled with trusses or other supports, a thoroughly fire-proof ceiling beneath, without any openings, would probably be as good a protection as could be obtained. The walls and partitions should be treated as in Class 2. Complete information regarding the particidar forms and sizes of the various fire-proof blocks inanufactur(Ml may be obtained by ad- dressing The Raritan Hollow and Porous Brick Co, , of New York City ; The Wight Fire-proofing Co., of Chicago or New York ; 2'he Pioneer Fire-proof Construction Co., of Chicago ; Henry }Iaurer d; Son, New Tork City ; 2 7ie Lee Fire-proof Construction Co .

Details, Finish, etc. After tlie constructive portions of the building are completed and the building is plastered, there are yet many details to be arranged, so as to afford the least possible material for a fire, and also com- bine strength, durability, and often elegance. Stairs.— The most important of these are the stairs, which, owing to the necessity of their being located in a sort of well or shaft, are always fiercely attacke<l by a fire. To construct a thoroughly fire- proof stair is nither a difficult undertaking. Many architects con- tent themselves by merely making the strings and risers of wrought 4S() FTKK-PnOOF OOXSTKUCTION FOR BUILDINGS. or cMst-iron, and Wm'. treads of slate, marble, or wood.

This can be painted as desired, and afford ready access to the pipes. No pipes should be carried in a wall or partition where they are not accessible. In finishing around elevator doorways, etc., where considerable ornamentation is required, cast-iron, painted in color, can be used with good results. Where there is no combustible material, there can of course be no fire. Cement Fig. 13.

That every building to be erected, which shall be three stories high or more, except dwelling houses for one family, and which shall cover an area of more than twenty-five hundred square feet, should be provided with incombustible staircases, enclosed in brick walls, at the rate of one such staircase for every twenty-five hun- dred square feet in area of ground covered. 7. That wooden buildings, erected within eighteen inches of the line between the lot on which they stand and the adjoining prop- erty, should have the walls next the adjoining property of brick ; or when built within three feet of each other, should have the walls next to each other built of brick. 8. That the owner of an estate in which a fire originates should be responsible for damage caused by the spread of the fire beyond his own estate, if it should be proved that in his building the fore- going provisions were not complied with. A certificate from the Inspector of Buildings 4hall be considered sufficient evidence of such compliance, if the building shall not have been altered since the certificate was issued. In addition to these general propositions, another series of sug- gestions was adopted, providing for proper fire-stops between the stringers in wooden stairs, and between all studdings and furrings, in the thickness of the floors, and for six inches above ; for car- rying brick party-walls, and outside walls adjoining neighboring property, above the roof, and for anchoring* wooden floor-beams to brick walls in such a way as to prevent the overthrowing of the walls in case the beams should be burned oft and fall.

In the Northern States and Canada, where there are often heavy snow- storms, experience has taught that the best form of roof for a building, except, perhaps, in large cities, is the A, or pitch roof. The inclinations of the roof may vary from twenty-six degrees, or six inches to the foot, to sixty degrees, or twenty-one inches to the foot, but should not be less than six inches to the foot for roofs covered with slate or shingles. For roofs covered with com- position roofing, tin, or copper, the inclination may be as little as five-eighths of an inch to the foot. PaiNOIPAL RAFTER ACK RAFTER CEIUNQ JOIST SPANS FhOM 2C TO 40 FT, The simplest form of pitch roof is that shown in Fig. 1. It con- sists simply of two by ten or two by twelve inch rafters, supported at their lower ends by the wall-plate, and holding themselves up at the top by their own stiffness and strength. A piece of board, called the "ridge-plate," is generally placed between the upper ends of the rafters, and the rafters ai-e nailed to it. In some locali- ties this ridge-piece is not used, but the upper ends of each pair of rafters are held together by a piece of board nailed to the side of the rafters before they are raised. The walls of the building are prevented from being puslu'd out- ward by the floor or ceiling beams, which are nailed to the i)late. The rafters are placed about two feet, or twenty inches, on centres, and the boarding is nailed directly on the rafters. The horizontal joists support the attic-floor and the ceiling of the room below. Such a roof can only be used, however, when the distance between the wall-plates is not more than twenty-four feet ; for with a greater span the rafters, unless made extremely heavy, will sag very coni^derably. i^- WOODKN KOOl'-TltrsShS Kin^ Post Truss. — WIumiovit wv wish to roof a hiiilrtin^i ill wliirh till- wall-iilat«'*< an* iiiort' tlian twniiy-four ftM-t aitait. wv iiiU'n; a-lojii sniiH" uM'tlunl for sui»]i«>niiiix tlu" rat'ti'i*s at tlic «"«'ntn'.

This form ot truss is very rarely used where the timbers may be se«n from the room below, ami they are therefore generally left rough. If they were to be planed, and maile a part of the finish ot the room below, it would be necessary to use solid tie-beams spliced together, or else build the truss of hard pine, of which wood, timbers may be obtained fifty or sixty feet long. The form of truss sliown in Fig. 2 la the modem form of the old king post truss, shown in Fig. 4, which was made wholly of wood, excepting the iron straps used to connect the piece* at tlie joints. Queen Post Truss. — When the span to be roofed is between thirty-five and forty-five feet, a truss such as is shown in Fig. .i is pref- erable, for several rea- sons, to the king post It consists of a hori- zontal straining-beam, separating tlie upper ends of the principal rafters, and a rod at each end of the strain- ing-beam, leaving a large space in the cenr tre of the beam clear. This is a great advan- tage in many eases where it la desired to uliline the attic for This form of trass should not be used for a si>an of over forty feet. For spans from forty feet to fifty feet, anotlier form of the same truss, shown in Fig. 6, should be used. This ia a very strong form of truss, and leaves considerable clear apace in the centre. In tliis truss the principal rafter should be made of two pieces, — one running to the top, the other only to Qie Btralniag-beam. This gives the greatest economy in construe- *. -* .« •".. I.

These counter-braces need only be used when the truss is unsym- metrically loaded. Wooden 'I russes with Iron Ties. — In all trusses whera the tie-beam of the truss is not horizontal, but higher in the centre than at the ends, it is better to substitute an iron tie for the wooden tie-beam. Fig. 17 shows a form of truss very well suited for the roofs of carriage-houses, stables, or any place where it is desired to have considerable height in the centre of the room, and a ceiling is not desired. The horizontal iron rod is fastened to the two struts at their ends, and the other two rods are fastened only at their ends, and merely nm over the end of a strut in a groove. The iron rods are tightened by means of the turn-buckles shown on the drawing. Fig. 18 shows a detail of the upi^er joint A, A better way of making the joint would be to have an iron box cast to receive the end of the rafters, and fasten the ends of the tie. Arched Trusses with Iron Tie-Rods. — For buildings where it is desired to liave the trusses and roof-timbers show, with DETAIL OF JOINT "A"FIQ.17 no ceiling but that formed by the roof, a very pretty and jjraeeful form of truss is obtained by tlie use of arched ribs, either for the principal chords of the truss, or for braces. In such trusses an iron tie-rod adds to the grace and apparent lightness of the truss, and may be very conveniently usfd.

Fig. 33 shows a form of truss used in Emmanuel Chiu-cli at Shel- bume Falls, Mass., Messrs. Van Brunt & Howe, architects, Boston. This truss was probably derived from the hammer-beam truss, and possesses an advantage over that truss in that it has in eifect a trussed rafter, so that there is no danger of the rafter being broken ; and, if the truss is securely bolted together at all its joints, it exerts but very little thrust on the walls. The rafters and cross-tie are formed of two pieces of timber bolted together, and the small upright pieces rim in between them. The trusses in the church at Shelbume Falls have the hammer- beams carved to represent angels. 508 WOODEN ROOF-TllUSSES. Fig. 34 shows a form of hammer-beam truss sometimes used in wooden chiirclies.

IRON ROOFS AND ROOF-TRUSSES, WITH DISTAILS OF CONSTRUCTION. OwiNc; to the incroasiiifT cost of lumber, and tlie necessity of oreriinij buildings as nearly fire-i)roof, and with as little inflaniina- ble material in the roof, as possible, it is becoming quite a common ])racti('(" to roof large and expensive buildings with iron roofs, wliich, of course, involves the use of iron roof-trusses: lionce it is im])ortant that the architect and progn^ssive builder should liave a general idea of th(^ constniction and principles involved in iron roof-trusses, and be familiar with the best forms of trusses for dilferent spans, conditions of loading, etc. ^ I -Beam. o ^iT Deck-Bfam.

Various forms of trusses have I>e4>n c(>nstruct«Ml to suit differenft IBON ROOFS AT7D ROOF-TRUSSES. 511 conditions of span, load, height, etc., and of these fhe following examples have been found to be the best and most economical. Before proceeding to describe these various forms of trusses, we would call the reader's attention to the sections of beams, angle- irons, T and channel bars, shown in Fig. 1. It will frequently be necessary to refer to these sections; as they are the principal shapes of rolled iron entering into the construction of iron roofs, and it is of great importance that an architect or builder be familiar with their forms and names. For convenience in describing the different forms of iron roofs, we shall divide them into the following classes: — 1st, Truss-roofs with straight rafters, which are simply braced frames or girders. 2d, Bowstring-roofs with curved rafters of small rigidity, and with a tie-rod and bracing. 3d, Arched roofs, in which the rigidity of the curved rafter is sufficient to resist the distorting influence of the load without additional bracing. Trussed Koof s. — For small spans, the most economical and simplest form of truss is that represented in Fig. 2. (Owing to the LEBANON FURNACE. Fig. 2. small scale to which it is necessary to draw these figures, we have represcmtecl the pieces by a single line, which has been drawn heavy for strut-pieces, and light for ties and rods. ) This truss was built by the Phoenix Iron Company for the roof of a furnace-building. It consists of two straight rafters of chan- nel or T bars, two struts supporting the rafters at the centre, a main tie-rod, and two inclined ties assisting the tie-rod to suppor
