Mr. J. J. LEEMING (Member):
Dr. Lightfoot’s paper deals with structures of constant section, and is to that extent misleading, because it is therefore one of those methods which tend to lead designers to fit their structures to their method of design.
THE recently constructed tissue mill at Northfleet for the Bowater-Scott Corporation is an interesting example in the use of a combination of precast and prestressed construction which embodies certain new techniques. For this reason it is felt that an extension of the methods used may well be applied to particular projects in the future where rapid erection and the employment of a minimum skilled labour force are envisaged.

A PREVIOUS paper, "The Failure Load of Rigid A Jointed Frameworks as Influenced by Stability," published in this Journal in July 1954 introduced the idea that elastic critical loads are one of the important parameters governing the behaviour of frameworks. As one side of a research project on the combined effects of plasticity and stability on frameworks, attention was therefore directed to the problem of calculating critical loads. This paper concludes a series of papers on the critical loads of Tall Building Frames.
