Reinforced Concrete Structure Erect
ed to Find Means for Strength
ening the Arch.
(Prepared by the United States Department
ot Agriculture.)
A reinforced concrete skew-arch
bridge one-fourth the size of a
full-size bridge has been built by the
bureau of public roads of the United
States Department of Agriculture and
is being "tested to destruction" to
gain information that will make pos
sible the building of stronger struc
tures of this type.
There are many locations where It
Is necessary to carry a highway di
agonally across a stream, engineers

explain. Under such conditions It ii
customary to build what is known as
a skew bridge, and when that bridge
is an arch, the arch is known as a
skew arch, the abutments or supports
not being at right angles with the
roadway. When the abutments are at
right angles to the axis of the arch
the structure Is known as a right arch.
Engineers can design right arches very
economically, but there is a great dif
ference of opinion with regard to thi
economical design of the so-called
skew arch.
The principal difference of opinion
among engineers is with regard to the
manner in which the load Is transmit
ted to the abutments. In the right
arch the load on the abutments Is the
same for each foot of length, but on
the skew arch this probably Is not the
case, and the Important question to be
settled is the distribution of the load
from one end of the abutments to the
It was with this object In view that
a series of tests has been started on
skew arches b7 the bureau of public
roads. At the present time the bu
reau has under way at Its Arlington
experiment station a test on a skew
arch designed to be one-quarter the
size of an actual structure. The arct
belt--; tested Is 7 feet In span, 4 feel
in width from face to face, and 4 feet
in height above the base of the abut
ments. The crown or midpoint is 1
Inches In thickness and the barrel ol
the arch Is reinforced with 4-inet
bars bent very carefully into the cor
rect shape.
The arch is being tested with a uni
form load and this loading is being
accomplished in a unique manner, as
follows: Forty-two spiral springs
each capable of carrying a load of 1,
500 pounds, are placed at uniform In
tervals on top of the arch and eact
spring supports a 2-lnch pipe, which
in turn bears against a solid overhead
structure. By adjusting the lengths
of these pipes the springs are deflected
and the amount of load applied to the
arch may be controlled by the amount
the springs are compressed. In this
way it Is possible to obtain fine ad
justments in the amount of load ap
plied without the necessity for piling
on heavy weights. As the load is In
creased on the arch It deflects and the
concrete and steel are deformed or
strained, and the engineer wants to
know how those strains are distrib
uted. For the measurement of strains in
the concrete a device known as a
strain guage is being used. With this
device It is possible to detect strains
with an accuracy of .0002 of an inch.
By carefully measuring the strains
throughout the arch It Is possible
to determine the manner in which the
stress Is distributed, and it is believed
that through a series of such tests
enough information will be obtained
to enable the engineer to formulate
rules for the economical design of
skew arches.
In addition to determining the
strains in the arch, the observations
Include measurements of deflection of
the arch under load as well as a mens
urement of the stress in the tie rods
between the abutments.

Tuberculosis Reduces Average Life.
According to recent statistics pre
pared by the National Tuberculosis
association, two and one-half years
would be added to the life of each
Individual In the United States if
tuberculosis were eliminated as a
cause of death. During the past 17
years the death rate from the disease
has been reduced exactly one-half, but
there are still more than 1,000,000
cases of tuberculosis in the country.
Tuberculosis workers, encouraged by
the results of their efforts, are plan
ning a more Intensive campaign for
the coming year In order to spread
further education regarding the dis
ease among the public, as It is their
conviction that It can In time be en
tirely eradicated.
Latin an Aid to Business.
Persons who wish to become pro
ficient In business English should study
Latin, according to Dr. J. Duncan
Spaeth, professor of English at Prince
ton university, because the study of
Latin gives the necessary training in
the fundamental laws of syntax and
grammatical structure. It also serves
as an Introduction to word structure
and word derivation. Doctor Spaeth
believes that a business man should
have a knowledge of from 100 to 500
Latin words and their derivatives as
the basis for good business English.
