Abstract:
The design of distribution plates under structural bearings is usually based on an assumption that the stress is distributed fairly uniformly. Thus study was undertaken first of all on a theoretical basis, and then with experimental work to determine the actual distribution of stress. . .Further experimental work is being performed and will be reported in the near future.
