An extension to the technical theory of bending for calculating rigid prismatic folded structures
Download the article from Stahlbau 6/1966 for free.
In 1966 Richard Schardt published in "Stahlbau" the foundations of his General Technical Theory of Bending (VTB). The VTB is a logical and successful calculation method for structures composed of discs. It represents an extension to the technical theory of bending for calculating rigid prismatic folded structures taking into consideration cross-sectional deformation. Richard Schardt's essay 44 years ago is without doubt one of the classics of modern-day structural theory.
