When an external force is applied to a point in an elastic structure the direction of the deflexion at the point will, in general, deviate from the load line. A general relationship is established connecting the deflexions and deviations caused by forces applied in different directions. A short investigation is made of the deflexions caused at one point by loads applied at some second point. The analysis is confined to cases where the lines of force and deflexion are coplanar. A. Ormerod

Composite Action of Beams and Slabs under Transverse Loading. (111) A Rectangular Slab with Repeated

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.

Analysis of Braced Frames by Relaxation Method. Written Discussion on the Paper by S. L. Lee, Ph.D.,

MR. KURT H. GERSTLE 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.

The Analysis of Statically Indeterminate Frames by Computer, using Moment Distribution. Precis of a

The Hardy Cross, or Moment Distribution, method of frame analysis offers interesting possibilities, when used on an automatic digital computer. For a number of years the analysis of elastic hyperstatic frames by computer has been mainly carried out by methods which require the explicit solution of large sets of simultaneous equations. If conventional techniques are used to solve the equations, the storage space required in the memory of the computer is approximately proportional to the square of the number of joints in the frame. This means that in practice, with present-day computers, only relatively simple frames can actually be analysed by these methods.
