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.
THE CHAIRMAN: 'I am sure you will all recall the collapse of Ronan Point on 16 May last; and will know that a public Inquiry was set up by the Minister of Housing and Local Government, consisting of Mr. Hugh Griffiths, Chairman, Professor Sir Alfred Pugsley and Professor Sir Owen Saunders. We are very pleased to have Mr. Griffiths with us here tonight, and of course we also welcome Sir Alfred, who is sitting beside me.
