Bicycle Design: An Illustrated History

The bicycle ranks as some of the most enduring, most generally used automobiles on this planet, with greater than a thousand million produced in the course of nearly 2 hundred years of biking background. This ebook bargains an authoritative and complete account of the bicycle's technical and ancient evolution, from the earliest velocipedes (invented to fill the necessity for horseless delivery in the course of a scarcity of oats) to trendy racing motorcycles, mountain motorcycles, and recumbents.

The Laws of Simplicity (Simplicity: Design, Technology, Business, Life)

Ultimately, we're studying that simplicity equals sanity. We're rebelling opposed to know-how that's too complex, DVD avid gamers with too many menus, and software program observed via 75-megabyte "read me" manuals. The iPod's fresh gadgetry has made simplicity hip. yet occasionally we discover ourselves stuck up within the simplicity paradox: we'd like whatever that's uncomplicated and simple to take advantage of, but in addition does all of the complicated issues we'd ever wish it to do.

In the design process the characteristic loads are multiplied by the partial safety factors to obtain the design values of design effects such as axial or flexural stress, and the design strengths are obtained by dividing the characteristic strengths by appropriate partial safety factors for materials. g. fk γm ≥ Design load effects ≥ [(stress due to Gk × γf dead ) + (stress due to Qk × γf imposed )] where: fk is the characteristic compressive strength of masonry, γm is the partial safety factor for materials (masonry), Gk is the characteristic dead load, Qk is the characteristic imposed load, γf dead partial safety factor for dead loads, γf imposed is the partial safety factor for imposed loads.

9 fk kN/mm2. 0 fk, the value given, however, is sufficiently accurate for design purposes. ) and lightweight concrete masonry as indicated in Appendix C of Part 2 of the code. In service masonry stresses are normally very low when compared with the ultimate value and consequently the use of linear elastic analysis techniques to determine structural deformations is acceptable. 6. 7 Creep, Moisture Movement and Thermal Expansion The effects of creep, shrinkage, moisture and thermal movement are all significant particularly when considering the design of prestressed masonry.

5 Slenderness (hef /tef) (Clause 28) The slenderness of a structural element is a mathematical concept used to assess the tendency of that element to fail by buckling when subjected to compressive forces. In many cases this is defined as a ratio of effective buckling length (le) to radius of gyration (r) about the axis of buckling. The effective buckling length is related to the type and degree of end fixity of the element and the radius of gyration is related to the crosssectional geometry. In rectangular cross-sections such as frequently encountered in masonry and timber design, the actual thickness is equal to the radius of gyration multiplied by 12 ; consider a rectangular element of width ‘d’ and thickness ‘t’: y y d t ryy = t = I yy Area 12 ryy = dt 3 1 × 12 dt ∴ t = t 12 ∝ ryy Since ‘t’ is directly proportional to ‘r’ then slenderness can equally well be expressed in terms of thickness instead of radius of gyration.
