Description: Miscellaneous paper
Synopsis: A casual observation by a structural engineer of the multiple bulb tee section designed for landing mats -- the T-11 Aluminum and the T-8 Magnesium results in a preliminary conclusion that the sections are adaptable for other structural uses. This study analyses the sections, determines their load carrying capacities and deflection characteristics under the various load conditions expected in quite general cases, and shows specific instances where the data so obtained may be directly applied in auxiliary uses. Quantitative values obtained in the study support the conclusion mentioned above. Fabrication, erection, and cost considerations are weighed. Modifications are specified in the instances where they are needed.
