The stresses and deflexions in a castellated girder are calculated by the simple theory of bending and by two methods in which it is assumed that the girder behaves as a Vierendeel truss. The calculated values are compared with experimental data and it is shown that the simple theory of bending usually underestimates deflexions by 20 to 30 per cent and that the measured stresses at some points in the girder deviate appreciably from the calculated values. However, the Vierendeel truss analogy is shown to provide more reliable values. J. KOLOSOWSKI

Circular ring-shaped plate loaded by tangential forces and by isolated point force

Circular ring-shaped plate loaded by tangential forces and by isolated point force

The method of complex potentials is applied to determine the internal forces in a stretched isotropic, circular ring-shaped plate subjected to tangential forces ôrè = -A sin è at its inner boundary and to an isolated point force at its outer boundary. Because of the double singularities (concentrated force and non-vanishing resultant on each boundary) the problem is solved by the sum of a closed expression and of a complex Fourier series. A numerical example is presented for the calculation of ó è at each boundary. S. SARKADI SZABO

The use of prestressed steel in elevated roadways

The use of prestressed steel in elevated roadways

This paper reports on loading tests made on a pair of prestressed steel girders designed for use in an elevated roadway scheme in London. The consulting engineers were engaged in preparing a report comparing various forms of construction before recommending the most suitable scheme to the clients, and the tsets were carried out as part of this investigation.
