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
