The Stress Analysis of Continuous Frames. A Comparison of Various Methods

1. The various analytical methods for determining the stresses in a continuous framework all start from the same assumptions and lead to the same conclusions, the intermediate processes being relatively long or short according to the characteristics of the particu1ar problem involved. The Author has indicated elsewhere the derivation of special methods from the principle of least work (R. l), and has shown that where it can be applied directly the method of analysis by the principle of least work gives results more readily and more simply than is possible by the application of special methods (R. 2,3). In this paper the method of least work is extended to cover all types of frameworks. E.H. Bateman
