Roark's Formulas for Stress and Strain, Chapter 12, Table 28, Case 5 (at least in the 6th edition).

Careful Fred last time I referred someone here to a book I got yanked and got a warning as "not contributing to the discussion"

Personally I believe showing people what literature can be consulted is very helpful do!

I went back and checked the warning -- it was for a little different situation. Fred's reference is very specific, but your advice in the other post was to buy a Schaum's outline.

Yes because people were about to spend 100+ man hours on something that you can seriously buy for $5,-

I don't want to be a nag but the exact response was:

"Almost every single questions being asked on here, one can tell someone to go get such-and-such book. It solves nothing. Your response to someone asking a question is essentially telling that person to go get a book. That response has no substance to a discussion forum such as this. If you don't care to explain, don't respond."

So I don't see how that is different. Anyway I was kinda kidding in the first place to Fred because his advise is usually spot on.

I honestly do try to not do a reference like that when I can. I do debate with myself as to whether or not they are getting spoon fed. However, for a situation like this, the number of posts and time to walk the OP through the mechanics for this loading would be pretty extensive. That's why I just came out and told him where to look. I think there are times where pointing a person to a source is a much more efficient use of our time and bandwidth.
