Title: Methods of Attaching Shafting and Machinery Reinforced Concrete Buildings
Author(s): Wm. M. Bailey, M. Am. Soc. C. E.
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 155-164
Abstract:The manner of attaching shaft hangers, pipes and machinery to beams and floors in a factory or mill building of the reinforced concrete type is a detail of considerable importance, so much so in fact, that often if no satisfactory scheme is explained to the owner he will not consider the use of reinforced concrete beams in his proposed building. In the ordinary mill-construction factory with wooden or steel floor beams there is no special difficulty in attaching hangers for shafting and pipes for fastening machinery to the beams and floors in any desired location without the necessity of previous plans and at a minimum cost. In a concrete building however the conditions are entirely different and it is much better to adopt some scheme for the installation of the machinery, piping, etc., before the building is constructed, if we wish to obtain the best results in all respects.
