THE PRESIDENT proposing a vote of thanks to the author, said the subject was fascinating and the Institution was extremely grateful to Mr. Kell for his paper.
This paper extends previous work by making possible the solution of problems of composite-action between a slab and equally-spaced stiffening beams when the flexural stiffness of the beams varies along their length. Provided that symmetry about the midspan is maintained, no restriction is placed upon the form of variation (the effective depth of the beams being specified numerically at a number of points across the span); Fig. 2 illustrates two kinds of variation which may be expected to occur in practice.

The author's method of analysing braced frames will be welcomed by structural engineers. This discussion will touch on two different aspects of the paper: First, the effect of column continuity, and, secondly, the suitability of the proposed method to the various example problems presented.
