The virtual work equation by which flexural deformations are related has been corrected to allow for the effect of axial compressive forces. These corrections can be applied wherever the end moments on an axially loaded member are defined and are particularly useful in the determination of the elastic critical loads of structural
systems by reiterative numerical methods.
The paper offers a solution in general terms for the design of the two major types of power station in use today. The variety of problems confronting the engineer when preparing a design for either a conventional, coal-fired or a modern, nuclear-powered station are discussed and special reference is made, under the following sub-headings, to a number of essential factors which control the design and construction of a power
At the meeting a number of members contributed to a discussion on Dr. Plowman's paper and their comments were recorded by the Institution's shorthand writer, Mr. A. R. Purchase, whose death was announced a day or two later. Despite many efforts it has proved impossible to transcribe Mr. Purchase's notes. The written contributions to the discussion are published below, with Dr. Plowman's replies. The Institution offers its apologies to Dr. Plowman and to those members who spoke at the meeting for the fact that publication of the full discussion is impossible.
