Abstract

"We know that, in the case of a beam, the really effective part of the cross-sectional area is that part farthest from the neutral axis. The I-beam, with most of the central area eliminated, is just as strong as is the rectangular beam of similar outside dimensions. Why should not the glaze on a piece of ceramic ware play as important a part in the strength of the piece as does the outermost area in a beam? Microscopic cracks in the flanges of an I-beam weaken it appreciably. Might not a parallel case exist in a piece of glazed pottery in which the glaze has crazing tendencies?"--Introduction, page 1-2.
