Abstract:The voussoir arch is composed of many individual sections fitted one upon another to form ah arch. The strength of these arches depends primarily on distribution of dead load and depth of the voussoirs. Analysis and design problems associated with the voussoir arch are essentially the same as those of the unreinforced concrete arch. This structure may be analyzed by either the usual standard analysis or by limit analysis. This paper describes and studies both methods of analysis, with emphasis on the advantages of limit, analysis to this type structure.
