In the design of Rigid Jointed Frames of which 2-Pin Ridged Roof Frames form an important part, there are two methods that are in common use by the designer. The methods referred to are:
(1) The Tabular Strain Energy method.
(2) The method of Distributing Fixed End Moments, by Prof. Hardy Cross
The Institution, most particularly the Scottish Branch, has sustained a great loss in the death, on the 24th September, 1946, of Mr. John Thomson, M.B.E., J.P., B.Sc., M.I.C.E. (Member).
Colonel Galpin’s previous paper on this subject was read in February, 1944. Since this was only four months before D day, censorship was naturally severe and in fact Col. Galpin was only allowed to mention the equipment which was actually in the service up to the beginning of the war. Since one of the barred subjects was the Bailey Bridge, some considerable disappointment must have been felt, both by the audience, many of whom had actually been engaged on its manufacture, and by the lecturer.
