The subject of this paper is the structural steel framework in the British Transport Commission’s new Transit Shed 102 at Southampton Docks. This building contains provisions for both passenger and cargo traffic and will be the main ocean terminal of the Union-Castle Mail Steamship Co. Ltd.’s service to and from South Africa.

THIS paper describes a method of carrying out elastic structural analysis, based on the electronic computer installed at Manchester University. A computer programme is described which will analyse automatically a wide variety of plane structures, in each case taking into account both the direct axial strains and the moments produced by axial forces. Examples are given of structures which have been analysed. The paper also discusses some of the practical points which arise in the solution of engineering
problems on digital computers.
