From Mr. D. L. LITTLE : As a visitor I should like to thank the Institution very much indeed for inviting me to hear Professor Baker give his paper.
The CHAIRMAN, introducing the author, recalled that the paper was a description of one of our major national schemes of post-war reconstruction which had formed the subject of a very pleasurable visit by the Scottish Branch last year when the previous President was able to visit the works.
In this paper, Mr. Robson considers the effect on bending moments when the change of moment of inertia along a continuous reinforced concrete beam is taken into account. Changes are assumed to occur where the bending moment changes sign, and the calculations are based on the ratio of the moment of inertia of a plain concrete tee beam for sagging moment, and a rectangular beam for hogging moment.
