The paper deals briefly with the application of reinforced concrete cellular deck for bridges (hereinafter referred to as box girder) in the USA and its wide use in the State of California for structures in urban expressway systems. The history of the box girder structure, its advantages, economy and applications are mentioned. Design specifications both theoretical and practical are discussed and illustrated. Finally a typical example of a box girder detail is shown together with sketches and photographs of box girder application in viaducts and flyovers. S. H. Studzinski

Some applications of the electronic computer to structural engineering

Some applications of the electronic computer to structural engineering

During the last decade the electronic digital computer has come to be increasingly used for large-scale accountancy and for the solution of complex scientific calculations. Many problems in structural analysis and design can now be performed very easily on the electronic computers which have been installed up and down the country, particularly at the universities and at research institutions. The purpose of this paper is to explain briefly how these machines work and how they are actually operated to analyse various kinds of structure. E. LIGHTFOOT
