THIS paper describes the design and construction of a new fire-resisting floor to the auditorium, and improvements to the orchestra pit and entrance staircase made during the summer of 1955. C. H. Hockley
THE problem of the simply-supported rectangular beam having a single circular hole is investigated for the case of bending with shear. An approximate mathematical analysis is presented along with the results of a photoelastic investigation. Results are also given for a rolled steel joist with a circular hole in its web from measurements with acoustic and electrical resistance strain gauges. J. E. Gibson and W. M. Jenkins
The authors have presented an interesting method for the rapid estimation of maximum bending moments in decks of suspension bridges. Their approximate analysis draws to a logical conclusion the more general method described by Bowen and Charlton (reference 3 of the paper). It is clear that the use of symmetry and antisymmetry offers a considerable computational advantage :two sets of three linear simultaneous equations are solved far more quickly than one set of six.
