Problems of Architecture and Construction


In article problems on durability of building constructions are investigated. Using the empirical formula for weight of an arch, under the influence of force, and the extremum theory, critical value of gravity is defined. Further for a homogeneous core which one end is fixed by the hinge, and on the second end force, and depending on a building material and a kind of its form is inserted, there is the greatest value of durability.
