Equation and Guidelines for Measuring Skyline Deflection
Abstract:A single equation has been developed for making midspan-skyline analyses by the so-called Abney method. In computations with a pocket calculator it is faster than the two-part equation generally used. Primary sources of error in the Abney method are limitations of the instrument and operator's mistakes.
