ABSTRACT

The stability
or ever-Ialler
lOwers is
hongll! al tbe expense of increasing their
footpl"ints, either in the tnlditiollai form
of the pyramid, or as a larger and larger
tube. But a composite
stability can be
established
with members (Sg, 59) thar.
on their own could never achieve those
heights; coupling them at regular intervals creates stability without fatness.
