The necessity for ever increasing elevation of buildings arises from a number of causes, and while these reasons do not form any part of the design and construction problems involved, they are, in the author’s view, worth stating.
Lt.-Colonel G. W. Kirkland
THE PRESIDENT proposed a vote of thanks to Mr. Mason, first for having taken the trouble to write his paper in time for it to be published in THE STRUCTURAL ENGINEER so that members could read it before coming to the meeting, and secondly, for his clear exposition of certain of its salient points.
The paper describes a method of analysis for beam and slab (or plate) systems. The theoretical analysis in its general form may be used to solve various loading conditions, but the computational work tends to be excessive. For the particular case of a uniform load over the whole area of the stiffened slab, however, the results of the analysis may be expressed as a set of coefficients the values of which may be represented graphically. For uniform loading, therefore, the method of analysis is suitable for design purposes.
