Title: Continuity as a Factor in Reinforced Concrete Design
Author(s): Hardy Cross
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 669-708
Abstract:The purpose of this paper is to explain a rapid and accurate approximate method for analyzing continuous girders and frames of reinforced concrete for bending moments, shears, and reactions and to bring together certain questions and considerations which bear on the interpretation of such analyses. The whole subject has often been confused on the one hand by too crude approximations and on the other by too fussy mathematical theory. The consequence of the mathematics has frequently been that the theory has occupied so prominent a position as to shut out from consideration certain practical aspects, and the problems solved often bear little resemblance to actual construction.
