The other column (Fig. 8 b) supports the same eccentric load on the left at the same distance. The pure compressive stresses and the bending stresses are of the same magnitude as in column (Fig. 8a). The compressive stresses generated by the bending tendency are here located on the left and the tensile stresses on the right. If the column (Fig. 8c) supports both loads of 100 kg, compressive stresses and tensile stresses due to bending cancel each other. The pure compressive stresses are added. The total compressive stresses, 20 kg/cm 2 , are nevertheless much smaller than the maximum stresses, 110 kg/cm 2 , generated by one eccentric load.

10c). The counterweight must be such that the resultant R of the forces P and L passes through the axis of rotation of the joint between the columns. R is the vectorial sum of forces P and L and represents the load exerted on the column. The counterweight L can be of different magnitude than the weight P but their moments relative to the axis of rotation must be equal and opposite in direction. The moment of a force is the product of the force and the distance at which it works P·a=L·b. If the counterweight L is further away from the axis of rotation than the weight P (Fig.

A new graphical differentiation from the latter reveals the curve of the acceleration. The acceleration for each phase of gait could theoretically be calculated from the tridimensional rectangular co-ordinates of the centre of gravity 57. However, this calculation would give incoherent results because of the importance of the variations in velocity and acceleration between the successive phases. To obtain sensible results, much shorter intervals must be considered. This is made possible by the graphical differentiation mentioned above.
