Prestressed Concrete Bridges and Other Structures Discussion on Mr. Donovan H. Lee’s Paper

The CHAIRMAN introduced Mr. Lee, who then gave a brief summary of the paper and showed illustrations of the tests of beams at Port Tampa for the Tampa Bay Bridge in Florida, (Fig. 31), a test of a beam for the Leyton-Marshes Culvert, which was made by the Cement and Concrete Association (Fig. 32), the first prestressed concrete overline railway bridge in Eire (Fig. 33), and some views of the 160 ft. span prestressed concrete railway bridge at Rotherham.

Plastic Design of Plane Frames for Minimum Weight

Plastic Design of Plane Frames for Minimum Weight

A paper presented recently by Professor J. F. Baker has shown the essential simplicity and economy of the plastic method of design of rigid framed steel structures. The method has been supported by results from tests both on miniaturee and on full-scale framess, and in view of the ease with which it can be applied, it is thought to be of interest to publish results of a theoretical investigation into the material consumption of such frames. In fact, an earlier paper* has dealt with the problem of the exact determination of cross-sections in order that minimum weight design might be achieved; however, the solutions were derived by means of sets of linear inequalities for the quantities required, involving heavy computational labour. The present paper abandons the idea of obtaining exact solutions; instead, it is shown that upper and lower bounds may be found for the minimum material consumption, and that these bounds may be made sufficiently narrow for practical purposes.

Verulam (readers' letters - January 2016)

Letters this month raise concerns about the the forces cited in an article published in May 2015 on assessing the capacity of the Grand Parade stone balustrade in Bath, UK; as well as considering structural safety margins and code discrepancies in relation to steel web buckling.
