The Use of Electronic Digital Computers in Structural Engineering

This paper contains a brief description of electronic digital computers and the manner in which programmes are prepared for them. Two examples of their use in structural engineering are included: (i) The elastic analysis of plane rigid frames first tackled by Livesly. (ii) The calculation of influence coefficients for an aeroplane wing considered as a cantilever plate. D.M. Brotton
