Re: Moment curves

I have a copy of Skene around here someplace (oops, forgot about that one) but seeing as it seems Bob's explanation is about as good as we're going to get without the designer around to ask in person..

Bob, what do you think of this? Is this a common thing for designers and architects put in their documentation??

Attachment 12191

That the original owner ignored that statement and that the previous owner was an architect (and document hoarder!) is the only reason the "Moment Curves" even exist..
