Discussion on the following papers:- (1) Application of an Electronic Digital Computer to Structural Steel Design, by L. Morgan. (2) The Analysis of Grid Frameworks and Floor Systems by the Electronic Computer, by E.Lightfoot, M.Sc. (Eng.) , Ph.D., M.I.Struct.E., A.M.I.C.E. (Delegate Member of Council)and F. Sawko, B.Sc. (3) Elastic Critical Loads of Multi-bay Pitched Roof Portal Frames with Rigid External Stanchions, by D. M. Brotton, B.Sc., Ph.D., A.M.I.Struct.E. THE CHAIRMAN proposed a hearty vote of thanks to the authors for the considerable amount of work they had put into the preparation of their papers and for the way in which they had presented them.
The Chairman introduced the authors who then presented the paper, and showed a large number of slides, which illustrated the structural aspects of the Brinsworth strip mill. They also showed a very interesting film of the sequence of operations in the production of steel strip; starting with the charging and tapping of the molten metal into the ladles, the control of analysis and temperature, cooling and annealing processes, the rolling of the ingots by stages down to strip, the eventual emergence of the strip and the coiling of it at a rate of about 30 m.p.h.
THE PRESIDENT, proposing a vote of thanks to Dr. Collins, said that, as stated in the paper, research on a scale such as he had discussed could not be described adequately unless only a certain short term of years was covered at a time, and it would be agreed that he had dealt with it adequately in this paper.
