THE PRESIDENT introduced Mr. Lewis who then presented his paper.
Mr. K. H. BEST (Member), said Mr. Davies had summarised the factors affecting the design of winding towers and had pointed out that these structures presented unusual and interesting problems, for which there were no standard solutions; and there was very little published information.
The analysis of a structure carrying prescribed loading and subjected to given support conditions consists in finding a set of forces or displacements satisfying the basic requirements of equilibrium and continuity. In simple structures it is generally possible to satisfy these conditions simultaneously whereas in more difficult cases the principle of superposition may be used after satisfying the conditions separately.
