This quantity tells of Kew's Palm condominium and its tropical plant collections. the tale of this "rainforest in suburban London" explains the heritage of the best glasshouse (the most crucial glass and iron constitution within the world), offers a glimpse into the area of the Victorian gardeners who labored there, and describes its recovery. the writer additionally provides distinct descriptions of the attractive and interesting vegetation grown within the Palm condo - from the cycads, the "living fossils" of the plant international, to the commercial crops corresponding to bananas, cocoa and rubber and various decorative species. between them are many endangered rainforest vegetation, and the significance of the rainforest and the necessity to preserve it are of the book's significant subject matters.

But the connection at the bottom of the legs prevents horizontal movement and this causes the legs to bend. Fig. 36 And just looking at one leg: Building structures 52 Fig. 37 This effect can be simulated by holding one end of a flexible stick between two fingers of one hand and rotating the other end with the other hand. Fig. 38 Internal forces 53 So the effect of connection is to cause bending moments in the leg due to M and shear forces due to Ph. A free body diagram can be drawn showing the effect of M and Ph on all the parts of the structure.
Fig. 66 The main wind load is caused by the wind blowing on the actual sign, and only the load path for this load is considered. This means the effect of the wind on the rails and posts is ignored. The actual signboard spans horizontally between the vertical stiffeners and the stiffeners act as vertically spanning beams supported by the top and bottom rails. The reactions from the stiffeners become horizontal loads on the top and bottom rails. These rails act as horizontally spanning beams supported by the vertical end posts.
Although bending moments and shear forces act together, conceptually they can be considered separately. To understand what is happening to the beam it helps to see what happens to a slice. Internal forces 41 Fig. 8 Each side of the slice is being bent by a moment. Fig. 9 The moments at the slice are the forces multiplied by the distances from the slice. Fig. 10 So the moments on the slice are: Fig. 11 Building structures 42 This causes the slice to be squashed at the top and stretched at the bottom.
